Situated on the historic quay in Topsham, L'estuaire bistro, bar and restaurant is the perfect place for relaxed dining and serves French classics, coffee and cocktails. The spacious dining room with ambient lighting and calming wall art looks out onto an outside decked area boasting stunning views of the estuary. Seated at a table near the window, we were introduced to Karine, our friendly and welcoming host who made us feel right at home. I chose to begin with bruschetta and juicy roasted tomatoes, while my companion decided upon the chunky pork terrine with crusty bread and balsamic and olive oil. For the main course, my colourful salad Niçoise was delightful, and my guest seemed equally pleased with her fillet steak with all the trimmings and a gravy boat of rich peppercorn sauce. To finish I opted for scoops of delicious coffee and salted caramel ice cream, and my companion a traditional creme brulée, which she devoured completely. The wine list is extensive and draft or bottled beer is also available. The children's menu features a selection of French classics, including moules marinières and croque monsieur.

L'estuaire is a fantastic venue for private functions, wedding receptions, parties or large groups of friends or families. Outside you'll fi nd a car park and there is a regular bus service to Exeter which stops right outside - who could ask for more
