All our food was wonderful - and all the food being served to other people looked wonderful too. Great atmosphere, excellent service and beautifully decorated - some really interesting paintings and artifacts. Couldn't have been better.

Great food and went out of their way to accommodate my daughters request even thought it wasn’t on the lunch menu only on the evening menu. Coffee was nice to.

Very busy even out of season so make sure you book. The tapas were amazing, and the recommended 3 per person was just right for us. I've never eaten pigs cheeks before but they were recommended and they were really tender and tasty.

A great place to eat food and the service is excellent just a bit pricey. If your going at the weekend or in the main season booking is a realy good idea.

Our trip to Lynton today was started by us enjoying a thoroughly tasty and beautifully presented meal at the Oak Room. We enjoyed 6 of their tapas dishes, which were served promptly and with style. The spiced lamb rump, calamari , prawns, meat balls, allioli...potatoes and olives with oil and balsamic were delightful. I can highly recommend the Oak Room.More

Hi. We take dogs in the restaurant at lunchtime but not in the evening. You and your furry family member are welcome to sit in the garden any time but that would be weather permitting.
