What Our Customers Say About Us …

Came here with the mrs. for her birthday at lunchtime. The Glasshouse is excellent! As soon as you walk in you get an incredibly trendy vibe with its nice, moody lighting.

Downstairs is a nice, dimly lit area with a fair amount of tables. The bar looks really cool!

We travelled to Barnstaple from Somerset on Saturday and visited Claytons Glasshouse before going to the local theatre and what a delightful experience.

The food was as good as I have ever tasted at a very reasonable price and the service was exceptional.

I am already planning a return trip to the area to provide an excuses to eat there again

– Highly recommended.

This is the second time I’ve been here, and once again had an excellent meal. This time, I went the whole hog and had three courses.

Barnstaple is not in itself a major tourist town, so it’s all the more delightful to find a restaurant of this calibre, especially at such a reasonable price.

We found this restaurant almost by accident and what a find!

The waiting staff were attentive and friendly, helping with adjustments to dishes to cater for a dietary restriction, which the chef and the kitchens managed beautifully.

The food is superbly prepared and very well presented. Our only regret was that we ‘discovered’ Claytons the day before we went home, or we would certainly have been back for more.
