In an idyllic spot on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, scenic walks are all around, from gentle strolls to serious hikes.Executive Head Chef, Peter Hingston and his brigade are dedicated to sourcing the very best of local produce. The cooking is classy yet simple, perfect for a special meal or relaxing Country lunch

We had a meal at the three crowns and were very impressed with the quality of cooking. We had the calamari to start which was soft and cooked to perfection. All in all it was a good meal and reasonably priced for the quality (£60 for two).

We know the Chagford hostelries fairly well having lived there in the past. The Three Crowns was one we had avoided. However, it was recommended by a local shopkeeper, so we tried it. The place has clearly benefitted from the money spent on its refurbishment, but the service and food, whilst acceptable, was not as good as the other pubs... More

We ate here the other night and, in general, the place is great. There are a few details that still need addressing if it is going to be as good as it seems to think it is. The young lady who served us was polite and attentive but some of the others could do with a bot more customer training... More

A good selection of locally sourced food on the menu with daily specials all served in a comfortable restaurant by friendly staff. A nice bar area and a good range of ales available

A fantastic family lunch. All food cooked expertly and well presented. Always good to see clean plates. Staff were attentive and knowledgable. Ok a little on the expensive side but for this quality good value for money. Highly recommended based on this visit.

This place has had money spent on it and, clearly, the St Austell Brewery aims for it to be a bit special. We ordered lunch of crab sandwiches which were very tasty and on delicious bread, but smallish - no salad at all and six crisps on my plate. Six crisps, why bother? The plate looked mean for £10.95 per... More

I have now eaten here three times whilst on work visits. I am from London and a good cook so to find excellent, creative bar and restarant food here in such a setting is precious. Service is helpful and unobtrusive, food is elegant and tasty, pricing is good value. Visit if you are down this way..
