Having been a number of times, we had no hesitation in booking a table for a family lunch when many of the restaurants in Ashburton itself were closed until later in Jan. I wish we hadn't bothered. Some of our party arrived a little early and ordered drinks and some of the bread & olives from the starter menu -... More

Dear Heather S. Thank you for comments - feedback is always welcomed even if it is negative! We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your recent visit. Your party of 9 were booked for 1pm and our large party of 16 (most of whom had pre-ordered) were not booked until 1.30pm – a more than adequate gap between bookings.... More

Two of us and a dog had a massive roast which was very tasty with a good selection of vegetables. And then there was a free pudding! We got our food very quickly despite the pub being full and having to deal with at least two large family parties.

A Great Night as a stop over on the way to Par Cornwall. Very welcoming. Food was lovely.I tried one of the home made pies (Chicken,Mushroom and Blue Cheese) plenty of pots and veg. Would definitely use this again as so handy just off the A38. Also a Good Breakfast the next morning.

Have been here several times, and I think the food has improved a lot. Really good homemade food. I had the fish cakes, which were delicious. Everyone else's food looked excellent, particularly the roast lamb. The service from our waitress Lara, was very friendly and efficient. Well done all round!

We like to eat out as we both work very hard in our business and we are here VERY often, we come back because we like it, nothing is too much trouble, even asking for more roasties! when we have had the normal amount. If you eat anywhere and have a problem, don't sit back and do nothing, point it... More
