Who'd expect to find a really good tapas restaurant in North Devon? Six of us turned up for lunch and ordered way too much food, but managed to finish it all, so delicious. Great for a family group and lovely friendly atmosphere. Keep room for deserts, particularly the leche frita - fried milk, sounds weird, tastes delicious

The Tapas was good, the service friendly and efficient and the atmosphere relaxed. It's maintaining its high standard.

The Oak Room on the High St in Lynton may not be the biggest of restaurants or the easiest to find, but wow it's good. Great Tapas, lovely wines and friendly service. Oh and the puddings, leave room for a pudding, fantastic.

As a family we have travelled far and wide and eaten in many tapas restaurants. To us the Oak Room is a gem. Warm friendly environment, great wine, perfect food and lively contemporary atmosphere suitable for London never mind a small Devon village.

My girlfriend and I visited the Oak Room for her birthday and it was superb! The food was so tasty we were spoilt for choice with the menu. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. If you're in Lynton and want great food nd service I'd thoroughly recommend the Oak Room.

We went into this modern little restaurant early on a Friday night and was pleasantly surprised. Hadn't looked in TA so didn't see the good reviews. It was a small friendly restaurant with lovely helpful waitresses. Nice choice of tapas style meals you could either have the whole meal of tapas or combine with tapas starters with a main meal...

I had traditional and my wife and contemporary (ginger scones with honey). The scones were epic, warm and fluffy and the tea was nice leaf tea. Thoroughly excellent tearooms.
