Country Pub with a Quality Carvery!

This was one of the better carvery meals I have had, with a choice of 4 roasts and a great selection of roast vegetables. Everything was beautifully cooked and presented with the option of backing up for more vegetables. Arriving early and avoiding the long queue was definitely a good move... read more

This place is lovely inside and easy to access from several areas of East Devon, hence it is very popular. Food was excellent, service first rate and the prices exactly what you would expect from this class of country inn. Would happily visit again, just be careful to book at peak times!

Lovely pub and surroundings - can be very busy with families but food good and service quick. Not a pub/restaurant for a romantic meal for two.

We first visited this establishment just after Easter. It had been recommended to us by our b & b hosts. It was so good that we went back the second night. I have just booked it for the two nights that we will be in Sidmouth - wouldn't consider going anywhere else. The carvery is fantastic, with a good choice... More

I would just like to say that this is one of the best places my owner takes me. It is also the best when it comes to food for myself. If you have a dog you must bring him or her here lots walks around, lovely open fire and we can sit under the table while you owners eat all... More

Been here several times when visiting friends in sidbury and we like to come here. The carvery is so good! YUM! Nice old place with great views of all the fields and rural area. Nice to go get some real english grub from a real pub/restaurant once in a while instead of chains like harvester and wetherspoons!
