We have been named âBest Restaurant in the south Westâ by Taste of the West in just year one Here at restaurant Twenty_Seven our ethos is quite simple; we use fresh local produce, skillfully prepared and served in a relaxed vibrant environment. Quality is
Wonderful food which justifies its rather high-end pricing and would justify a five start review. But oh how they need a more experienced Chef Patron to mentor them and get the front of house and overall management up to scratch.I know it must be very difficult to get and keep good quality staff and these here are so young that theyâve most likely never experienced the sort of restaurant that this is aspiring to be. But, as a customer, that isnât my problem - itâs up to the restaurant to sort out. There were four of is. We ordered a bottle of rose wine. When it arrived it had been opened and was in a wine cooler - and it was just put onto the table by a waitress who then walked away. We spotted it wasnât the wine we had ordered so we called her back over and our comment rather threw her into a panic. She called over another waitress who rather off-handedly said âoh yes, weâd run out of the one youâd orderedâ! Well fair enough but Iâd expect you to tell us that, not just give us a substitute and hope that we didnât notice. We said weâd keep the bottle theyâd brought but asked to taste it - so one of us got a taste and then, having said it was OK, the bottle was put back into the cooler and we were left to pour our own! Some simple training would help - take the wine to the table, show the label to the person who ordered it, open it in front of them, offer a taste, pour wine for those who want it and only then put it into a wine cooler.We wanted a bottle of white wine to go with our main course. It was impossible to get anyoneâs attention until they brought us our food. We were then told that theyâd run out of the wine we wanted - âwe had 12 bottles but theyâve all goneâ. So, at 8pm on a Friday evening theyâd run out of 2 wines from a not particularly extensive wine list. I know that stocking up on wine is a big investment for a restaurant so can sort of understand it but, again as a customer, the wine is part of the dining experience and they need to sharpen up on this to justify the price-point.So yes, go to this restaurant, enjoy the food (I particularly recommend the celeriac starter), but donât exoect too much from the overall experience.Hi Iâm glad you thought the food was excellent, your right about the staffing problem i face, trying to get good staff and keep them is literally the bane of my life!! I can train and train, but when its service time unfortunately Iâm in the kitchen ensuring the food is excellent, But i have a very experienced manager starting next week, and this should solve my problems, with regards to the wine you are completely correct we won best restaurant in south west and the bookings went crazy, so yes we did run out, Iâm sorry about this hopefully youâll try us again, Jamie x

Local hotspot for foodie lovers come rain or shine. Home cooked, doorstep produce. Now open 7 days a week. No bookings taken
We stopped off for breakfast on the way back home after a few days nearby. A really friendly welcome, a fresh tasty non greasy full cooked breakfast with excellent coffee and lovely views will mean we will definitely visit again.We couldnât resist two of the homemade cakes to take away (they also have gluten free).

We loved the feeling of eating inside what felt like a cosy little shack on a wild stormy afternoon. From the tiny kitchen emerged delicious plates of fish & seafood; squid/whitebait tempura - style, spicy prawns & mussels, grilled bass, chips & salad. Nothing fancy but nicely done. Whilst not particularly cheap, it was worth it for the quintessential English seaside experience; staff were charming too.

Went walking down to Ayrmer Cove from NT car park, blissfully empty beach! Walked back via circular route, stopped for lunch at this 13th century inn. Food, home cooked and delicious, service well timed with good portions for us adults and children. Prices reasonable for mains, Â£7 for pudding but once again home cooked. I would recommend eating here wholeheartedly.

Nestled into the Avon Valley, Award Winning restaurant The Oyster Shack â aka âSeafood Paradiseâ serves an array of mouth-watering catch of the day seafood and shellfish, depending on whatâs been landed daily and whatâs in season on the land. With eclecti
A fantastic lunch once again! Disappointed that due to recent wet weather we were under cover in the outside area and not completely outside but was very pleased with the atmosphere, fantastic food, attentive staff ( and with our 2 dogs) and overall experience . Would highly recommend this special place!

THE UK's Best Craft Beer Bar 50 yards from the beach. Amazing homemade food using local produce. Awesome range of craft beers. Barista coffee, now with two floors and balcony with stunning sea views Open everyday from 10am until late.
Part of our visits to Hope Cove are the requisite crab sandwich in this restaurant. A really popular place with the countless walkers passing through. Opened up seating upstairs and if the sun is out, you can sit outside. This is the sort of place where you wish you had ordered what the people sat around you are eating.

Our 14th Century Inn is steeped in tradition and is a short walk from the surfing beach of Bantham.
We came for a late Sunday lunch, the place was still packed. Sitting in the older, atmospheric front room, tables were cramped but cosy. Service was charming, prices reasonable & we approved of their bespoke gin menu. Roasts were traditional & generous as was fish & chips. A lighter dish was the catch of the day (cod) served with salad minus the menu potato option. Parking was a bit of a nightmare since it was a sunny half-term day but ultimately worth the uphill walk back. Felt like an authentic English Sunday pub experience.

The 16th Century Village Inn, complete with beams salvaged from Spanish Armada ships wrecked on the nearby coast, is a popular free house owned by the Grose family for more than a century and is where they first offered hospitality to visitors. Recently e
Our once a year visit and once again well pleased. A warm smile welcomed us and the menu offered a good range of options. We both went for the fish pie which was well presented and really tasty. Happy to go again.

Welcome to the Millbrook Inn â gloriously situated in the charming village of South Pool, Devon. A place to discover and enjoy great, honest cooking in an atmosphere that celebrates why villages need pubs and pubs need villages. Take a look around and see
I was worried this was going to turn out to be an overpriced local pub, but although it was more than your average, the food more than makes up for it. We went with our boys, but they are at the age where it just about worked. I wouldn't have gone with any younger children - neither the menu or space would make it right for them really. I saw that they have a bbq on some nights with a different set up and that might work better for less formal. Extremely helpful front of house (owner?) was not sure who he was, but made us feel welcome, made sure the dog was comfortable and had water. What they call the bar snacks are more like starters really, and the menu is not 20 pages of inedible food, but a few choice options for fish, field and hedgerow to suit all, with some more basic, and value, children's options. Highly recommend. Make sure you book though as it is not a big place!
