How great to find a small "front room" pub run by enthusiastic young people. We were visiting Chillington & found this pub, what a delight! Good beers, pleasant food at reasonable prices & a chance to chat to some friendly locals. We hope this venture succeeds & is well supported by visitors & locals alike. In these days of pub... More

I have tried almost every main course on the menu and I can honestly say that I have not eaten anywhere better than this. The servings are of a sizable proportion and are cooked to perfection. I have to admit that I have not tried the desert menu, not because I am not a fan of deserts but because once... More

We live locally and have visited Open Arms several times since they have recently opened under new ownership, and very much enjoyed their fish&chip meals, 2 for £12. They even did the fish grilled for us, which my wife prefers! And the chips are lovely, crispy and chunky, just how they should be! Excellent value, excellent quality - we will... More

Second visit in last month or so. We both had the steak deal which was two for twenty pounds. Very good steaks with well presented and tasty accompaniments. Good choice of beers. Friendly service with a smile. This new venture in a pub that has relatively recently reopened deserves to succeed. Doing the simple things right.

I would probably give this if I could a 3.5 but put 4 as it is pretty near very good overall! This is just a pub with the one room, about 8 tables with the bar in the back corner. There is nothing romantic or quaint here, but if all you want is a good plate of tasty food then... More

We were visiting family in Chillington and all three nights while there we used the pub. Very welcoming little pub which seemed well used by the locals as well as visitors to the area. The manager seemed passionate about his Ale and had three local ales on the go when we visited. His lager and cider were also from Devon... More

First things first, it is not some showy pub, we ate here twice and it was good value, but not fancy. I confess I did not like the beer, and there were three real ales on that all seemed the same to me!! Nice quiet garden. It did close down for a while and has now re-opened and the village... More

Visited for the first time on Weds 30/07. Passed the pub many times and as they have relatively recently reopened thought about time we stopped. Very welcoming on arrival...always a good start. Good choice of ales and had a very well kept pint of the Summer Ale and decent house wine. Food was good (Lamb and Mint Suet Pudding and... More
