Had a Sunday Lunch here and enjoyed it so much that we booked a second visit immediately. The food is very tasty english cuissine served in what feels like the front parlour of a family home. There wasn't a duff course among the twelve we had over our 2 visits. Given the very reasonable prices being able to bring our... More

We went on a cold and blustery November evening, the welcome we received soon thawed our bones. What a lovely quaint family run place to eat. It may have a small menu, but it's well thought out and scrummy. I had pan seared pigeon breast on smoked crispy bacon starter, guinea fowl served with a delicate mushroom sauce and an... More

Stopped here for Sunday lunch, and just how do they do it? My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The restaurant was fully booked (and deservedly so) but our lunch was served promptly with great presentation and attention to detail on the plate. Cannot praise this highly enough. The vegetables were the most imaginative we have eaten. It is... More

Whiddons is a cozy little eatery with Tina providing attentive service and very good food. It is BYOB, which we like, and can buy the appropriate wine at Best Cellars nearby after looking at the menu in Whiddons window. My husband had a starter of mushrooms and I had a smoked haddock with quail egg starter. Both were delicious. We... More

Stopped here for lunch. We don't have large appetities so only had a main course. We opted for two of the specials - a steak, mushroom and guiness pie and pork loin. While these may not be the best meals we have ever had in a restaurant they were simple food cooked to perfection. Good balance of meat and vegetables... More

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

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
