Had dinner here with family while staying in Dartmouth. We were made very welcome, with attentive and friendly service. Drinks before dinner round a blazing log stove. We all loved our food - local country ingredients: venison, pheasant, pork etc. beautifully cooked in various ways and artistic presentation. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we went back the next night... More

Had a thoroughly brilliant time here, one of the best meals I've had. You'll have to book as the place was full. We had Potted Devon crab and the duck liver parfait to start. Good sized portions, all totally delicious. We all opted for the Pork belly and truffled pork cheek for main. I can honestly say this was the... More

Visiting good restaurants is a bit of a hobby of mine and I would have no hesitation in putting Andrew's talents up against some of the more "well known" chefs out there. The menu is not huge (a good sign... More

We booked a 4 night stay here on the strength of the menu on the website and we were certainly not disappointed. Being in the food industry and seeing chefs every day, the food here is without a doubt amazing - clean, unpretentious flavours, very well presented and substantial. Everything is produced on site and we enjoyed Inn cured and... More

We booked this restaurant after reading great reviews and it was very near to where we stayed. There were 8 adults, 2 children and 1 baby. The food was absolutely delicious and all meals came out at the same time and were hot. C. The chef had prepared fresh home cooked chicken goujons for the little ones and they loved... More
