We went to this restaurant twice in a week. Staff are very professional, the food is beautifully cooked and the choice of dishes rerlatively small. That is a good sign. It means they cook everything fresh. The range of different meals is still "something for everyone": meat, fish, vegetarian. One of the very best restaurants in the area. Book a... More

So the sat nav broke and the journey to The Manor Inn was interesting through real Devon country lanes. On arrival we were greeted by really friendly staff. Drinks were ordered; the Dartmoor Brewery Jail Ale was one of the finest ales I've tasted. The menu was varied and every dish on the specials board sounded amazing. We elected to... More

Had the fixed rate lunch here yesterday: a group of 10 after a funeral. The bar service was quick professional and friendly, the waiter was positive, quick and very efficient ... and the food was top class too. They didn't put a foot wrong, even though we were late and changed our table from inside to outside. I don't believe... More

Fresh scallops with bacon, calamari with dipping sauce and then..salted caramel ice cream. White wine spritzer with soda very refreshing. Great lunch.

First visit here for a while but as good as usual. Friendly and helpful service, great menu & specials board. We had chicken skewers & bettered Brie to start, followed by the catch of the day lemon sole fillets & belly pork. Everything tasted fresh and delicious with generous side portions. Summer pudding just about finished me off but not... More

On 09/07/15 we came here for my husbands 50th birthday meal. We had a lovely table upstairs (where it was nice and cool as it was a warm evening) and we were left to chat with our friends and enjoy our drinks without feeling pressurized to order food quickly. When we finally ordered our starters arrived in an appropriate period... More
