Atmospheric Lounge Bar Downstairs…

Glass Roofed Dining Experience Upstairs


In our lounge bar downstairs, we offer regulars and new customers alike the chance to relax in our comfy chairs and enjoy a cocktail – or two!

Our drinks menu is packed with a huge range of exciting cocktails, an extensive list of carefully constructed ‘gin experiences’ and a comprehensive bevy of beers, ales and spirits – including a number of local products.

Our Claytons lunch and dinner menus, available downstairs all week and in the Glasshouse through Monday to Wednesday, are freshly prepared using the finest local produce. With traditional classics sitting next to some more unusual dishes (goat curry, anyone?), there’s something for everyone.

The Glasshouse

Unique to the area, the Glasshouse allows you to dine under the stars – encased by glass and exposed beams. The ambience is fantastic and the food just as good.

Our Glasshouse dinner menu is a tasting experience unrivalled, we believe, in the whole of North Devon. Whilst our lounge bar menu is undoubtedly good, The Glasshouse is a dedicated restaurant; focused solely on producing the highest quality British and European cuisine.

Our special Glasshouse menu is available only Thursday through Saturday, but you can request a table upstairs in the Glasshouse any day you like.

Please do book to avoid disappointment!

“Great food, attentive service, modern ambience and good value for money. A terrific meal as we were passing through Barnstaple. We were there on a Thursday evening, and the restaurant was busy with local people. Always a good sign. Well worth a visit.”

“Whether you choose the downstairs (Clayton’s) or upstairs (The Glasshouse) restaurant, you will not be disappointed. In both places you can expect freshly cooked food from the most exquisite ingredients to create the most inventive dishes. The service is excellent and you are sure to dine in a very special atmosphere…”

“We went out as a group of friends. Four of us ordered rib eye steak fillet with salad, chips, spinach and chestnut mushrooms. We also requested sweet potatoes bites. The meal was absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic. The staff were friendly.”
