We had a good evening here.Everything worked really.Pleasant interior,good buzz about the place but not so noisy you couldn't enjoy conversation around the table. Active, unfussy,energetic staff. Unpretentious menu, perfectly cooked food with an emphasis on fish but our braised lamb dish was fine. A concise wine list, perhaps lacking in detail but as I said, it's very unpretentious and...

We managed to get a table for 2 here last Saturday evening and we are so glad we did! The menu was different to your usual restaurant fayre and it was difficult to choose each course. The food when it came out was beautifully presented and wonderfully tasty. The staff had just the right touch - attentive but not intrusive.... More

Decided to visit this restaurant while driving through Devon as it came highly recommended. Water and home made soda bread was placed on the table. As well as the regular menu, seasonal specials and catch of the day were also available. Even though the restaurant was full, service seemed smooth and time between the courses was minimal. Homemade asparagus soup... More

The portions were just right, everything was very well cooked and beautifully executed on the plate. They also serve a big glass of water with ice and lemon to everyone, which is... More

Was a bit sceptical to begin with as newbies to the place. However does not disappoint what so ever, and I'm fussy!! Perfect place with outstanding food, amazing service and couldn't do any more for us. Will 100000% be returning. Lovely way to kick start my 21st.

We came across The Chronicle by chance last Friday evening and what a pleasant surprise. Run by a delightful married couple, Kathy being the chef and Ricardo front of house. They serve delicious, fresh, home cooked food, locally sourced. There was a Prix Fixe menu offering great value which included some of the daily specials. This is not 'Freezer to... More

We came for lunch on Easter Sunday, which was also my friends birthday. My husband & I had been before & enjoyed it so much we wanted to bring our friends. I booked via email with Kathy as they hadn't yet reopened for the summer. All email replies were quick & efficient. There was a set 3 course menu for... More
