I've popped in to Cantina for a pint whilst cycling past and it's got a lovely atmosphere. Even better in the recent heatwave.
Anyway the two of us decided we would eat there one fine sunny evening. They don't take reservations so it's a first cone first served basis which is fine with me.
You've an outdoor area that is spacious and tables far apart. I saw that other tables are introduced ay busy times.
There is then an open marquee which is attached to the building and this is nice. I didn't see any heating in there but there is a box of throws and blankets there along with big sofas.
Inside again it's nice with sofas and a generally nice atmosphere.
Limited draught beer but the bat sticks anything you need really. It's Hunts Cider (very local and really good) and Bays Devon Rock. A lovely local lager that's quite hoppy and flowery and is really quite distinctive. £4.20 a pint.
The menu is good and might look limited but I think it indicates it's all fresh and the kitchen can only cope with certain levels of business - a real plus. Having 100 items on a menu suggests either frozen/microwave or stuff that's not available.
The pricing is slightly odd but appears to be more common now.
Two prices sometimes shown but no indication as to what you get.
They've really lovely pizzas at around £6/12 and the £6 was probably 9".
Nice variety of pizzas. We had two £6 pizzas, bowl of fries, bowl of halloumi chips (£5 very good and I'd say a big portion), and a bowl of tomatoes, mozzarella and olives (£3) - came to £21.
Really tasty and lovely evening and very enjoyable.
I live locally so many friends and colleagues go and they too praise the food and service and staff.
Outside can get a bit chilly so worth taking warmer clothes as you'll probably want to stay longer than you planned.
Also has live music occasionally which adds to the atmosphere.
