Popped in for their 'midweek deal', thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine. The owner is very welcoming and makes you feel comfortable. The staff are also friendly and happy. We will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch here on Sunday. This is a small welcoming family run restaurant. The food was excellent and the owners sorted out our dietary needs without any fuss. There is a fairly small menu but everything we had was prepared with great attention...More

We have never had a bad meal here. The food is delicious and well presented, the hosts and staff charming and the restaurant a delight. The prices are also very reasonable and to be honest I can't wait for my next visit!

Excellent dinner and very reasonably priced. One of the joys of the South Hams is that there are so many little jewels in villages and hamlets waiting to be discovered. The First and Last is one of these

A lovely bistro/restaurant. You select off a smallish menu and I can recommend majority of the food. I have been several times and never disappointed. Not to pricey. Lovely atmosphere when busy. Staff are great young and polite
