As a family we have visited The California many times, never to be disappointed. Lovely relaxed setting and friendly and welcoming staff. The food is always the very best, over the years we have never had a bad meal, full of flavor and quality and always something on the menu suitable for all tastes. This is a really special venue...

An old roadside country pub. Visited on New Years Day for lunch, booked ahead and glad we did as all tables occupied by the time we arrived at 13:30! Serving a good range of beers and wines. Meal service was only bar meals but the extensive menu along with the 'specials board' should cater for most palates. We has a... More

Great restaurant, expensive but worth it for a special occasion. My husband & I have been several times for our wedding anniversary.

Lovely lovely pub. Very welcoming. Many pubs have regulars who look as you walk in as if you had no right to be there but in his pub the staff were very welcoming and patrons friendly.

A main and dessert averaged around £20 per person and the food was excellent the feel of the Inn was welcoming and relaxed and good humour behind the bar. On the basis of our experience we will be back and fully recommend a visit. We ate in the rear dining room which was roomy and comfortable setting.

Had lunch today after calling in at the South Devon chilli farm. The welcome was great, the chap behind the bar was very friendly. Had a lovely pint of Jail Ale. A ham baguette which was delicious, can't wait to return to try a proper meal. The beer garden looks lovely too.

Myself and 5 others visited this pub whilst staying at Moor View for the weekend and after reading some of the reviews were a bit dubious about what we might find! Some of the reviews talked about the staff (or a certain member of staff) who people may not get along with! These reviews must have come from people with... More

We've visited three times now and enjoyed it every time. Bar staff/manager/owner has always been very accommodating and help us get a table sorted for six of us, including three young children. Food has always been very good - nice to see some different changing specials, desserts are always lovely too. Bar staff always bring drinks over if they are... More
