Welcome to Number Eight

We are a couple run, small, intimate and relaxed fine dining restaurant which is situated down a quiet backstreet just off the quay in Bideford. Our aim is to create a dining experience with ever changing seasonal menus. Upon arrival you will be greeted by Chloe who will provide you with welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable hosting. With Joshua behind the stove cooking up tasting menus using the best local produce sourced from the South West to create exciting and passionate dishes. With 27 years experience between us, working in well known restaurants around the Cornish coast gaining experience and skills, we have now decided to spread our wings and express ourselves and show the passion we have for food and service. We look forward to welcoming you to dine with us soon!
