I've been to the manor Inn 5 or 6 times and every time is a delight. We always order off the specials board, it's so full of choice and changes really frequently so every trip there is a new experience. The food is always cooked to perfection, the staff are friendly and you leave happy. What more could you ask... More

Do you like changing your baby on the floor of a toilet or I front of other patrons in the beer garden? Perhaps you enjoy balancing them on your knee to feed them and chase after them as they wander off? Then this pub is the place for you! So baby unfriendly and completely uncalled for given how cheap a... More

Our waitress was wonderful nothing to much trouble. The food was wonderful beautifully presented on very hot plates. The choice on the menu... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. Lovely food and great service. As always. I'm a vegetarian and I appreciated the 'no problem' attitude when I asked for something off the main lunch menu rather than the set Sunday lunch menu. Can take dogs into the separate bar area and there is a sunny beer garden. Reasonably priced for standard of the food.... More

We stopped here on our way to our holiday in Salcombe and two years on from our first visit, could it be as good ? Yes it was in fact it was even better. The welcome you receive is typical of the whole service. Excellent beers and a lunch menu that is first class. If it wasn't 155 miles from... More

Well the satnav lady put us in a field behind Kingsteignton travelling to Chudleigh with not a hint of sarcasm. Brand new road negotiated, headed to the welcome sight of The Manor. Warm welcome and fire burning. Locals clearly love this place. Plenty of laughter and an enticing menu board. We had scalllops and black pudding balls for starters. Delish.... More

What a lovely place. We popped in for a snack and received wonderful, helpful service. My Dexter steak was 'beautiful', one of the best I've ever had! Definitely worth a visit.
