After contract from the owners (Heather) with their concerns we had a complimentary meal a few weeks later. However guys the portion size is small compared to your competitors and batter was poor and lacking on the sausages. Please get back to your winning standard that we used to enjoy over many years previous 😘
Very disappointing meal not to the usual quality we have had in the past. All food was overcooked especially the Scampi which was burnt and some pieces still raw on inside. Scallops were rock hard. Only exception was the spam fritters. Come on guys get back to how it was or loose customers.
On two previous visits to Barnstaple I’ve ordered from here. The first time online and I turned up on time to find my food hadn’t been prepared.
Last week I ordered over the phone for collection an hour later and once again I turned up exactly on time to find my order hadn’t been prepared. I politely asked why should I bother to order if the food is never ready? I got the lame excuse of “she wrote it down but never told us” whilst pointing to a handwritten list on the counter along with what I presume were the online printed orders so the excuse didn’t add up.
The shop seems to be staffed by youngsters with no one actually in charge and no system in place as to who does what.
In short, the food was really really good but I see no point whatsoever in ordering in advance as it won’t be ready so you may as well just walk in and wait
