Set in the small hamlet of Chettiscombe and nestled within the rolling hills of mid-Devon is a hidden gem, a wood-fired restaurant serving up delicious seasonal food in their meticulously restored Linhay and former cider barn, boasting fantastic views from their their garden terrace.

Aside from their famous sourdough pizza evenings (Friday evenings until 21:00) you’ll find a seasonal brunch, lunch and cake menu using primarily suppliers from the south-west. During our spring visit the brunch menu included home-made granola with buckwheat, nuts & goji berries and from their wood oven; shakshuka with eggs & sourdough, smoked ham & eggs in the pan, field mushroom confit and brioche French toast with fruit compote.

There’s simply too many goodies no list from their fabulous lunch menu (click the menu button above) however delights include a wood roast goats cheese salad with griddled chicory & bacon, Cornish white crab bruschetta with slow prove focaccia or slow cooked lamb pitta with aubergine & chickpea to name a few. These are accompanied by a tasty selection of sharing plates – we had the Turkish ‘Pide’ flatbread with spiced lamb & picked red onion and the seasonal mezze board (both pictured).

As for cake these are equally a welcome variation from the norm and during our visit featured a grapefruit, rosemary & almond, iced lemon & poppy seed (vegan), carrot & walnut loaf and double chocolate brownies.

Coffee is a single origin roast developed with Roastworks Coffee Co in nearby Willand and the loose leaf tea is from Suki Tea.

It’s the perfect pitstop for cycling groups with fantastic panoramic views overlooking delightful Devon countryside from their large outdoor terraced seating area,. Inside the chic and newly renovated barn there’s plenty of space too. Booking is welcome and advised, especially for weekends when it does get very busy and quite rightly so!
