Popped in for a xmas tipple and the place was lovely. Wood fire was burning away, the mulled wine was tasty and the ale was good. Would have liked to have revisited but will have to wait until our next visit to Sidmouth.

Good food, but a very cramped dining area. Very much a pub atmosphere.The service was a little slow to start with, but then picked up.

Nice pub, only had a quick pint in there but seemed a very decent pub with a nice vibe going on. Looked like they had a good darts culture in there also...

We sampled both the food and ales here during a short break, both were lovely quality and we would recommend this pub. When we called a second time we were recognised by the man behind the bar who commented it was good to see us again. Little things like this cost nothing but make a huge difference.

We had a fabulous meal here. Very nice, friendly and warm staff - very helpful and looked after us. Lovely home-made British food. I had the steak, apple and stilton pie which was delicious and the pie was filled with lots of steak. My husband had the port burger which he said was delicious too. Both portions were very generous.... More

My mom and dad had been in here before just for a quick drink outside, so they suggested that we have something to eat in there today as a family. It's a lovely setting, proper English pub but unfortunately we received a very unfriendly welcome. The bar staff acted as though it was a real chore to serve us -... More
