Good morning, I would just say "Don't change anything". Our entire experience was lovely and memorable. we are from Birmingham and were in Barnstaple for 2 nights. Prior to the night that we booked a reservation, we did come in the night before but unfortunately there were no tables. I knew from there that it must be something special inside. Booking the table was very easy and as mentioned from the moment we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted by some lovely staff. The ambience of the restaurant was lovely and relaxing and the food..... it was so nice. I only had bruschetta and sweet potato chips (small appetite) but even they were so nice. My whole family genuinely enjoyed the experience so much and my dad is still praising it to his friends in Birmingham (West Bromwich). Particularly the beer......my dad said he hasn't tasted beer like that anywhere. If we do ever return to Devon again, Lush will definitely be on our list of places to visit. I wish you all the best and as mentioned, Don't change anything.

From the moment we entered the restaurant we were made to feel welcome. The service was fab. The food was truly excellent. We had cocktails with our meal which were lovely. It was the first time our family members had been to this restaurant and they were absolutely blown away by the quality of the food and the whole ambience of the restaurant.

Lovely experience, we’ve found Barnstaple to be terrible for food and this has been a really lovely surprise! Lovely waiting staff too and we really appreciate the vegan options. Pleeeeeease make your katsu with a vegan option, that would be perfection! Thanks again :)

A welcome bolthole on a grey Sunday Lunchtime, the service was very good especially the twins with their permenant smiles. I had the Sunday Roast followed by and Eton Mess for dessert which was of good quality and generous portions. I was shown to my reserved table which was towards the rear of the dining area, being a lone diner this would suite me and enabled me to watch food preparation in progress and comings and goings. I wish to address one concern though, I witnessed the plating of food being carried out (after I had eaten my roast) by a gentleman using his bare hands to add vegetables to the plates. Not sure if this meets the food hygiene regulations and would welcome your response to this? Regards Paul

Four of us had a really lovely birthday lunch. The only reason there was not a higher score for value was the price of the drinks. The food was of good value as the amount and the quality was excellent.

What a lovely restaurant! We'd booked a table for seven people, six of us had the roast and one had the fish pie - every meal was delicious. Five of us went on to have various desserts and these too were absolutely delicious. The presentation of the food, the service, the decor, the cleanliness - all perfect! Needless to say - we'll be back!

We were so pleased to stumble upon this restaurant on a Sunday evening when everyone else seemed to be closing early. The food was freshly cooked and plentiful - we ordered the Homemade Fish Pie and Roast Beef - both came with fresh veg and the roast had all the extras including an amazing cauliflower cheese! Just what we were looking for.

We had excellent service. The menu choice is good with the added bonus of specials. There was a slight mix up with one of our meals. A seafood linguine arrived instead of the meatball linguine and unfortunately the guest was allergic to seafood. The waitress sorted this for us and a meatball linguine arrived as soon as it was possible. If I have any constructive criticism it would be for the waitress to double check the order by reading it back.Otherwise an excellent evening as always
