A small dining room in what seemed like their front room was laid with tables for diners. We ordered the special pie of the day.... Steak with mushrooms and Guinness, which my partner said had deliciously short pastry and tender flavoursome chuck steak. My eggs florentine came piping hot and still managed runny yolks with muffin soldiers to dip. Puddings... More

Have been here several times and never been disappointed. It is family run and like eating in someone's dining room. The menu is small and tonight there was a choice of four things for starters and mains. I had a delicious chicken and bacon terrine that was wonderfully firm. This was followed by duck breast on celeriac puree with wild... More

Really delicious homecooked gourmet food, and the desserts are utterly wonderful (I had a huge meringue). The staff are very friendly and well informed, and can`t do enough to make your meal special. Has no liquor licence so can BYO and the dinner prices are very reasonble. Would definitely go back again.

Highly recommend this restaurant. You bring your own wine which is a really nice touch (there's a Spa shop close by if you need to get a bottle). Lovely place and great food. Closed for evening meals Monday- Wed which is a pity as I would have gone several times. Best place in Chagford to eat. Highly recommended!

We ate hear on Saturday night and I can honestly say it has been the best meal of our holiday. BYO meant we had a fairly cheap (because we didn't have to pay inflated prices) bottle of St Emilion wine which complimented the food brilliantly. Do not miss a visit to this establishment

Whiddons Eatery was an absolute breath of fresh air... food was SUPERB. Truly home-cooked, delicious and everything went with everything. Anyone who visits Chagford without eating here has missed out!

Ate here the Saturday evening of the back holiday, the place was fully booked when arrived and was seated by the window overlooking the church; the place is tiny from the outside looks like an olde English tea room. The menu is small, as it’s only a husband and wife team really understand. I put the wine and beer on... More
