Chef James Duckett took over ownership of the Old Custom House restaurant in August 2008 and has drawn on his wealth of experience in some of the finest restaurants in London and internationally to elevate the cuisine to new heights.

Occupying a tastefully renovated 17th Century building located on Barnstaple‚s newly revamped Strand; the restaurant offers an inexpensive tapas style lunch menu while an à la carte dinner menu provides an authentic fine dining experience in relaxed and informal surroundings. Using only fresh local produce wherever this is possible all of his dishes are prepared on the premises, including bread, pasta and ice cream. James‚s menus change daily to reflect availability and quality of local supplies and while the atmosphere is informal, his dishes are prepared with all of the techniques and quality of produce that you would expect in a top London restaurant ˆ and at a fraction of the cost!

During the summer months the Old Custom House will offer al fresco dining on the Strand pavement area and in a private courtyard to the rear of the building. Private functions are welcome in the main restaurant (34), in the upstairs, panelled dining room (20) or in the rear courtyard (25).
