The meals were small and expensive. . We found there was not a lot of variety. Two of the meals we ordered were fish... More

Now branded as Protocol, this is a local establishment to our home. We went with friends to try the new menu. The food was faultless. Three cheers for the chef. Drinks range is pretty good too. On this occasion, the wait staff were disorganised and very slow. It was quicker to get drinks from the bar than wait for table... More

A re-branding & new ownership sees this place no called Protocol. Had initially wanted to come for Elevates South Devon Steak so we're disappointed when we found new owners, new menu & no South Devon, although we were not disappointed with our service or our food! Young waitress did a good job waitressing, as she should, remembering our orders &... More

Now called Protocol. New owners and not a good start. The staff are very young and too cool for school. I ordered a latte and got a under extracted flat white. We ordered a pizza and then noticed the chef spying on us and then at the bar chatting with another female customer. Pizza took 30 minutes and was warm... More

Elevate offers diners the choice of either a private room or open dining and sitting areas: the menu is quite extensive, pub grub with a flair, light snacks, entrees and mains including steak, New Zealand lamb and venison (of course), seafood and poultry: Family and friends live in the area and we usually enjoy at least one meal there when...

Our meal was nice. I personally would like a little more choice. But what we had was tasty and well presented. The service was good. Was a little noisy due to the layout but will return

New Year's Eve dinner in lovely surroundings. The staff were welcoming and attentive and the food was delicious. We started with a bread platter which was served with a beautiful green dip that was an excellent match with the bread. Main course a delicious steak (not too big as we chose the lunch version.)This was paired with nicely cooked vegetables.... More

We came across this pub. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was good. They even answered any tourist question we came up with. We had a great time.
