I visit Whiddons whenever I come to Dartmoor. The menu is always varied & imaginative (the beetroot fritters are excellent) and the food beautifully cooked. This place is a real gem in a village that is well worth a visit. My only regret is that I live too far to visit more regularly

The husband and wife team serve a limited menu, but what a menu. If you appreciate superb food cooked to perfection with a decent bottle of(not overpriced)wine all at a reasonable fixed price, book now

We happened upon Whiddons by chance having been recommended to visit the Hardware stores in Chagford (they are like going back in time and well worth a visit!). Anyway, two of us had lunch - the menu was small but varied and we both opted for the savoury pancakes - delicious and baking hot! For dessert we had the oat... More

I have been to Whiddons many times, and it never fails to impress. The moment you walk in, a cosy atmosphere greets you. You are then presented with a varied and imaginative menu. Alongside the main course, you are presented with a range of deliciously cooked vegetables. The owners are friendly, and the food comes at a reasonable price. We... More

Unusually you take your own choice of drink which is a very nice change. A well ordered, smooth running small restaurant, only seating 16 or so, so book early for a very good meal and cheerful service.

Six of us booked for Sunday lunch last week after reading the great reviews on here and we were not disappointed. Despite some of our party arriving later than we had booked, we were met with courtesy and smiles and great service. We all had the Roast lamb which was wonderfully tender but the vegetables were the star of the... More

Not often two of us eat two courses each and find everything perfect. Happened at lunch here. One of us a veggie too, even had a choice. Lovely fresh homemade food, served in a pleasant unassuming way. Just lovely. My sincere congratulations on providing such a great experience.

Managed to get into Whiddons Eatery for lunch after several attempts in past couple of years. It did not disappoint. My wife had the Roast Chicken & Leeks and Philli cheese main course was accompanied by shredded parsnips in a cream source with crumble topping, beetroot fritters, cabbage and baby sauté potatoes. I had the steak and mushroom pie in... More

We had a fantastic evening meal here. Only open on Friday and Saturday for evening meals. The menu was well thought out and all the main dishes came with a good selection of veggies. The desserts were excellent, on seeing the dessert board when we entered we had chosen dessert before we even saw the menu for the mains! There... More
