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.

A really nice cosy pub/restaurant. The staff were polite and efficient. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The only down side, we were too full to have desert!

The Manor at Ashton is one of the best kept secrets in South Devon. That suits the customers but probably not the management! This lovely little pub/restaurant is hidden away over the river and rail bridge just off the main Teign Valley road. They have been cursed for over a year now by seemingly everlasting road repairs which have resulted... More
