Ate at this pub on Thursday evening. We were a large party of 14 including plenty of children. We had booked in advance and phoned our orders through our order the night before. We were in a pub lounge on our own and the pub itself was very welcoming an tastefully decorated. The service was friendly and attentive an even... More

We visited the Fortescue Arms on recommendation from the owner of the cottage we were staying at. He told us that the food was excellent and he was absolutely right. Our group chose from the regular menu, pizza menu and daily special board and all were excellent. We were made to feel very welcome, both by the pub staff and... More

My fiancé had... More

Went for evening meal as family of four. Nice dining room, really friendly, helpful service and excellent food. The food is freshly cooked and all delicious. We had starters and a main absolutely no room for a pudding! Our party included two teenage boys with very healthy appetites and only one could actually finish the main. That's the only thing...

Thank you for a brilliant family lunch. We booked for New Years Eve lunch and were made very welcome. We were so well look after, the kids were given toys to pay with, free sweets and the older boys received Legend pint glasses to take home after enjoying the real ale so much! The food was great, particularly the generous... More

We visited The Fortescue Arms for a family celebration. We were warmly welcomed with special touches for the birthday boy. Our order was not straight forward with allergies and preferences to be taken into account but nothing was too much trouble for the attentive and friendly staff. Despite a slightly longer than normal wait for the food, the portions were... More

We had Roast Pork and all the trimmings. How we found the space for their fantastic deserts I dont know but glad we did. They we fab-ul-ous! Steve and Michelle are great hosts and make you feel that your their very special guest. If there was a 6 rating they would definitely deserve it.

Friendly atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door. Great to see cards being played, people chatting as well as delicious food being enjoyed. Had the sole which came with 4 vegetables and lovely tasty sliced potatoes all under £12. Well worth the wait. Sticky spare ribs next time I think!

We've been holidaying in East Allington for the last eight years now and I can honestly declare the current lincees and chef are the best by far. Friendly locals, warm and welcoming bar staff are just the start. The menu may initially appear limited but I would far rather choose from a small menu, knowing it would be superbly cooked... More
