Our review

James Duckett's award winning restaurant in Barnstaple serves fine food and is amongst the top ten diner rated restaurants in the entire South West of England, see Top Table; it was named 'Best Restaurant' in the 2009 North Devon Food and Drink Awards; and received a Gold Award in the 2009 Taste of the West Awards for its use of local produce. It features in the current Michelin and Good Food Guides.

James is a chef of considerable talent and experience in the kitchens of Michelin starred restaurants in the UK and internationally. He serves modern European, French and British cuisine using finest local produce, including locally caught fish and shellfish and his menus always include a choice of vegetarian dishes.

His lunches are informal and relaxed with a set price two or three course lunch menu. In the fine weather you may eat outside on the south facing front of the restaurant on the Strand or in the private rear courtyard.

Dinner is a true fine dining affair with James's dishes lovingly prepared and served. You may select from an à la carte a menu which changes in part daily to reflect availability of fresh local produce or indulge yourselves with his six course ‘taste and flavours' menu served with wines, selected to complement each dish.

You may choose to dine in either the downstairs restaurant, which has an informal bistro atmosphere or in the upstairs panelled dining room which has a more formal and sophisticated feel.

All menus, including those for special seasonal occasions, may be viewed on the website - see View Website link above.
