An enjoyable early dinner with friends who always ask to come to the Barn Owl when in this part of Devon. An attractive pub with a good atmosphere, the food is excellent and the service efficient and cheerful. The new road system is rather a muddle at the moment so management need to make sure their direction signs are larger... More

Great place, small and friendly enough to care big enough to provide high quality service. Fantastic food, excellent service, dog friendly, cracking little garden. Badger beer fantastic. Best thing now is access via the new roundabout. Don't hesitate to go here, if your local or just passing by . Quality

I have visited this pub restaurant a couple of times before and on both occasions have been very disappointed with the quality of food. If I'd arranged the venue I would not have chosen this place. My friends however wanted to meet at a central location for us all. Visited with 6 friends for lunch on Monday 6th July. Were... More

I visited this little pub having had several locals suggest I try it. I was tempted by the steak pie but when it arrived it was all rather average. Only slightly better than a meat pie from a supermarket. The overall portion was small with a few chips (see photo) and quickly boiled frozen peas and gravy. I have had... More

Great atmosphere; customer service exceeds expectations; staff are very friendly and welcoming. Our dog was greeted as enthusiastically as we were. Dogs are welcome in the bar area and food is available from the restaurant menu to be served in the bar area also. Can heartily recommend the chocolate pot mini pud; this is to die for! Food cooked beautifully... More
