Halloumi burger so delicious, have one with a mug of mocha and I'm set up for the week! Monthly quizzes are a blast, so glad these Brighton belles decided to come to Bideford over 5 years ago.

My daughter had her 'usual' a brie and cranberry toastie. Tess always knows that's what she will have. I had the seabass fishcakes. As always, the food, cooked by Kazz was delicious! We spotted someone at the next table having some very scrummy looking cake!...More

Wandering Bideford, looking for somewhere different to eat, what a find. Small, quirky, cosy, comfortable, welcoming. Really not sure how they manage to produce such a range of tasty food in the space. Love the fact that the kitchen is on view. Look no further.

Visited here last September so a year later didn't hesitate in returning and pleased to see it obviously still thriving. Lovely ambiance, friendly staff and delicious food. Already looking forward to our next visit.
