Welcome Oasis

In the middle of suburbia (well Newton Abbot) there lies a pub/restaurant with hidden rooms and a delightful ambience. Food and service excellent. Highly recommend. It's a calm oasis.

Various problems with some of the dishes. Three of our party ordered goulash and rice: the ingredients were good, but there was very little of the sauce essential to a good goulash – the dish was dry about a third of the way into the eating. Someone else had greasy fish and chips. Another person ordered an antipasto of mixed... More

We had a group of 8 adults and 9 kids here last night and we had a great time in the garden. The kids loved playing on the swing and running around whilst the adults drank and ate. They kept all groups' bills separate and staff were really lovely. The Thai food was yum too!

We went for a Sunday lunch. we found the venue itself very pleasant and the waitresses wee nice people but very inefficient. The plates had tiny pieces of food on them where they had not been washed properly, and when this was resolved half of our food was served straight on the floor. No real problem there, accidents do happen,... More

Came for a special Valentine's meal, and just managed to get a booking. Place was heaving, but we didn't have to wait too long for service. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff. Very good food, but possibly not worth the very high price tag - way beyond what we would normally pay for a meal out!
