    Food and service was incredible, couldn’t fault a thing. We sat outside because we had our dog, the servers were so accommodating even bringing us out blankets to keep warm. We appreciated the recommendations of standout dishes and general friendliness, making a really enjoyable experience outstanding. Thank you so much, and we will be back ASAP!

    We had a fantastic 21st birthday family celebration meal last night. Its a varied and interesting menu, with delicious food. We enjoyed pigs cheek, crab and scallops from starters and beef, hake, cod and cauli kyiv from mains. Great veggie options. All just so good and beautifully presented. The kitchen was really flexible, as I'm allergic to fish and were so accommodating, changing elements of dishes in response. There's a good wine menu and cocktails were lovely. Service from Lily was just outstanding. A really relaxed, friendly comfortable restaurant which looked after us and fed us supremely well.

    I was look for a brunch venue for my partners 40th birthday, after a nice walk & before our afternoon plans and found this absolute gem in Croyde. The food was incredible, the restaurant was beautifully fitted out, the service was fantastic. Welcomed with a smile, the restaurant was spotless. Food was quick and the flavours were incredible, I recommend the fried chicken, bacon and maple syrup on their homemade waffle (may have added a hash browns and an egg too!). Special mention to Victoria for looking after us, polite, informative about the food and the area. Straight into my top 10 breakfasts and will be back, thank you.

    We ate at New Coast Kitchen on Valentines Day, when they were serving a tasting menu with wine pairings. All the food and wine was as good as ever, and we were glad we had decided to have this special treat. Quality dishes with local ingredients,beautifully cooked. Friendly, enthusiastic staff.

    Just a delightful experience from start to finish. Service and ambience are lovely. And then the food was perfect. Really well balanced dishes that clearly show a chef who loves food (in particular great sauces) and wants their guests to be well fed with good quality ingredients and interesting flavours. Bravo!
