Zenas Restaurant:: Click for Website

Settled by the Saxons over 1000 years ago, Barnstaple is the oldest borough in the country and to this day, is the business, agricultural and tourism centre of beautiful North Devon.

It lies in the River Taw valley 7 miles from the mouth and at the beginning of Tarka country. Its the centre point for travelling to Bideford and North Cornwall, Exmoor and Dartmoor. Zenas Restaurant is situated right in the centre of this historic town.

North Devon

North Devon is a very special to live, work and to visit. It is special for its people, its culture and its outstanding environment. It hosts some of the finest examples of special landscapes and wildlife areas in Europe.

Stunning Coastline: Stretching from Hartland to Lynton, most of it is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)

Taw and Torridge Estuary: Rivers link the surrounding uplands and the sea. The estuary is a birder's paradise with an abundance of wading birds and other species. Look out for the rare salt marshes; these are rare habitats and effective sea defences.

Braunton Burrows: One of the finest sand dune systems in the northern hemisphere owned by the Christie family for more than 350 years. It is an amazingly rich habitat with hundreds of species of flowering plants.

Hartland Point: Storm lashed quay fronting the Atlantic; also known as the Promontory of Hercules and the Point Furthest from the Railways. Dramatic cliffs demonstrate some mind boggling folding of rocks. The shipwreck museum explains the challenges of the coast for navigation.

Appledore: Traditional fishing village at the mouth of the Taw Torridge Estuary, where the 2 rivers meet. Good fish restaurants are a feature of the village. The long tradition of fishing and ship building is reflected in the Maritime museum and traditional architecture.

Woolacombe beach: A steep dune system with typical dune flora also backs onto this 5 Km long open sandy beach going south to Puttsbrough. It is a great site for learning to surf.

Westward Ho!: Victorian Sea-side resort whose name was inspired by the novel by Charles Kingsley. Now the area is celebrated amongst the kite sports world. Formerly the home of Rudyard Kipling but also famous for the Northam Burrows, beach dune and grazing marsh area

Great Torrington: Market town and home of the 1646 Museum dedicated to one of the last battles in the English Civil war. Close to the Tarka Trail and has a large common managed by the town important for butterflies. Otters frequent the river Torridge here. Nearby is the RHS Rosemoor Gardens to see some gardening delights at any time of the year.

The Tarka Trail is a pedestrian and cycle way that runs in a 180 mile figure-of-eight through landscapes little changed from those described by Henry Williamson in his classic 1927 novel Tarka the Otter.

It is a fantastic and sustainable way to explore our Biosphere Reserve from the coast, through deeply cut river valleys with ancient woodland to the productive farmland and moorland higher up the in the valleys and hills.

The Trail passes through towns such as Lynmouth, Barnstaple, Bideford, Torrington, Okehampton and Ilfracombe and parts of it coincide with the South West Coast Path, the Two Moors Way and the Dartmoor Way.


To find Zena's Restaurant Barnstaple from the M5 follow signs for the A361 to Barnstaple. Upon reaching the town, head for the Town Centre and follow signs for The Pannier Market. When you reach the market you’ll find Zena's Restaurant half way down and through the arch, tucked away in the corner under the trees.
