Well worth visiting

We went along one evening this week and found all tables were reserved so we decided to try the following day slightly earlier and we were not disappointed. A lovely place with character, great food and a children's play area outside. Thank you.

We live local to the Sportsmans Arms and recently popped in for Sunday lunch after a morning out, this is the third time we have eaten here ( all Sunday Carvery ) and they have all been tasty and plentiful. Would recommend for Sunday lunch, can be busy so worth booking a table.

We were staying at Dartmouth Golf Club hotel and decided to explore the local area. Saw the sign that Carvery`s were available and having read previous reviews decided to try one. We were not disappointed and decided to go back for a 2nd time later in the week. Thank you

Whilst on a family holiday in the area, we visited this local pub for a family meal and couldn't have been more pleased with the standard of food or the value for money, especially the portions of the meals! A lovely play area also for the children! A+++++

8 of us came here in the evening. We had a great time, and a great meal. We sipped wine outside in the garden, which made a pleasant start to the proceedings. We went inside and ordered our food. The majority had the carvery, what a feast. There were plenty of trimmings and 2 roasts to choose from, what a... More

Have just returned from a lovely lunch. Carvery £ 9.95 each, very good value for money. Choice /combination of pork, beef and turkey with very good selection of vegetables, proper Yorkshire puddings and yummy roast potatoes . Lovely atmosphere very helpful staff. Already trying to think of a plausible excuse to return asap.

Family lunch, guest age range 5-85. Well organised carvery with good range of meats and vegetables.Fresh and piping hot!! Only complaint, like many carveries why do they offer the same gravy for all of the meats?

We came here two years ago for a lunch and could remember it when we were looking for a Sunday lunch today . This proved to be an excellent choice - a fantastic carvery , one of the best we have ever had . Cannot fault it

Couldn't decide between 3 and 4 stars. This is a popular place - visited on a Sunday for Carvery and it was packed. The Carvery had a decent selection of meat and veg - and for a Carvery the quality was pretty good. Cooking food at Carvery volumes is never going to create something amazing - but it was on...
