Delightful Evening Out. - Edit

The Grassroots is mostly a daytime eatery but on two evenings a week, Friday and Saturday, they open as a bistro, with a fixed price, set menu. £20, four choices each for starter, main, and dessert, BYO alcohol. It is a simple formula which works extremely well.
The place has a relaxed, homely atmosphere (the sunflower decor grows on you), the food is down- to- earth recipes, delicious tasting, beautifully prepared, and unfussily presented. (no arty-farty presention here, thank goodness). The portions are generous so you need to bring a large appetite with you.
Sadly North Devon is seriously short on vegetarian cuisine so this place is a must if you are in the area.
Pros. Really good food. Unbelievable value. Generous portions. Friendly staff (one chef, one waitress !) Good atmosphere.
Cons. Small place, need to book. Only open two nights a week.

Pros: Really, really good food. generous portions., Unbelievable value. Friendly staff., Good atmosphere.

Cons: Small place, need to book., Only open two nights a week

Welcoming homely cafe - Edit

Excellent little cafe with Vegan and Vegetarian options, staff were very friendly and welcoming. Priced very well and great lunch size portions. Would have loved to check out the bistro night with BYOB but unfortunately only discovered this place near the end of our holiday.

Pros: Friendly staff, priced well, byob (selected nights)

Cons: decor might be a bit garish for some

Fabulous Bistro Nights - Edit

Friday and Saturday nights are Bistro Nights from 7pm onwards.
The fixed price menu £10.00 per head (at time of writing)is excellent value for money and in our opinion too cheap for the quality and quantity of food you get. The menu offers 4 starters, 4 main courses and 4 deserts on a rotating 3 week menu. For example
Starter - Cherry Toms panfried in balsamic vinegar and honey served with toasted muffins and feta.
Main - Creamy veg bake with cheesy crumble served with steamed veg or salad and chunky chips or garlic bread. Sweet - Coconut cream in a brandy snap basket.
All appear to be homemade and cooked to order.
The premises are not licensed so bring your own alcoholic drinks.
Surroundings are very pleasant and the owner who also served and cooked and washed up! was helpful and attentive.
Booking is a must as the cafe only seats around 20 diners.
During the day the cafe also sells a very interesting range of vegetarian sandwich fillings and quiches.

Pros: excellent choices on fixed menu , price , friendly

Cons: none
