Staff at this pub were very friendly. The food is excellent such a choice in meats and vegetables All home cooked and nothing was to much trouble. Would recommend this to anyone , the only thing we didn't see was disabled toilets there are steps inside and can be cramped around the bar area of busy. Overall EXCELLENT .

We were staying at a nearby campsite and decided to go to this pub because it was raining and we all wanted a big hot meal! We hadn't booked a table, and hadn't realised how popular this place is so we were a bit panicked when we arrived and spoke to the staff who said that it was usually a... More

We popped in here as a party of six including two children aged 6 and 4 whilst attending the Dartmouth Regatta. It was surprisingly quiet and we were greeted warmly and told we could sit anywhere.

Visited while in the area, do not usually go for a Carvery but this was excellent. The roast beef was locally sourced and was melt in the mouth..everything was fresh and tidy! Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Great selection of meats and veggies. Still under a tenner so very reasonable price. Packed and so word has spread about how good it is. Friendly professional staff. Good range of ales, cider and wines.

Very busy pub. We had to wait for half an hour for a table. A good range of beers and ciders at the bar. Food was ok, our group had a mix of carvery and food off the menu all arrived in good time. This is a typical Carvery if you like these your like this place.

I have visited this pub on 3 occasions now and the food is good especially the Carvery. The staff are friendly and there are plenty of tables. The food is good value for money and there is a play area for kids in the beer garden. Worth a visit.
