Claytons Lounge Bar

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 and upstairs all week, 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.

Food served from 12 – 3, 6 – 9 Mondays to Saturday, and 12 – 4 Sundays. 

The Glasshouse Restaurant

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

And just outside the Glasshouse, you’ll find our newly refurbished Terrace. Complete with comfy furniture and a fantastic ambiance, particularly in the evenings, the Terrace is the new home of plenty of exciting new events.

Please do book to avoid disappointment!


Join us for half price prosecco and sharing boards every Thursday!

“We booked for the New Year’s Eve 6 course taster menu and it was great. Every course was delicious and the staff were very attentive. It was great value and we’d definitely be keen to do something like this again”

“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…”

(Trip Advisor review)

OK, we were wrong to expect too much of the Barnstaple culinary scene on a cold Wednesday in January, but thank heavens for Claytons & The Glasshouse. Just off the High Street, this smart and recently refurbed venue offers an eclectic menu in a bistro setting. Not to beat about the bush, my Venison Steak was simply the best I’ve had…”
