Been visiting this cafe ever since my trials of the local breakfast talent back in 2010 when we moved here. I often take my two kids there who are always chatted to and made to feel welcome as is everyone who walks through the door. The food is always freshly and cleanly (5 star H&H for many years) prepared and... More

I've been past this cafe many times and always told myself one day I'd try it. Today my partner and I went in for the first time and we are so glad we did! Coffee that was hot and better than Costa and tasty prawn baguettes. The staff are lovely and very welcoming and because of this and with the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our cafe. Mick tries very hard to get it right and we always try and use local produce which is so readily available here in North Devon. More

The Manor House Cafe on the High St looks plain and homely, but don't be fooled; its prices are competitive, the staff are friendly and the menu is sensible; classic food done very well at a reasonable price. Good English food for good English people. Novelty, they are actually professionals and they can cook. Five stars well deserved; probably the... More

Thank you for your review, especially that your comment that we try hard. Yes we do, this is our home and we love our cafe. My husband used to teach Catering and we have had young staff take it up as a career after working here. I was surprised at your 'venal' comment but comes as no surprise and sorry... More

We stopped in during the Christmas lights switch on for a glass of wine and we're made to feel so welcome we came back for breakfast in the morning. Great value breakfast. But can't remember seeing any black pudding on the menu. Delicious anyway. Highly recommended. Hope to return in the summer. Merry Christmas to all the staff and regulars
