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

Staff were excellent, especially the boss! The food was fresh and very well cooked. We always enjoyed our meals and came back for more!

Stayed at the camp site nearby and booked a table here for a birthday meal. Nice short walk and arrived early with the intention to have a drink before being seated. The place was heaving but even so they said our table was ready and we could grab a drink and take our seats and they would be over to... More

Staying at the near by campsite so went over for a drink with a view to having dinner there. Service was fine, pub ok but very quiet with several areas with the lights off so not very inviting, drinks a reasonable price but nothing there made me want to stay for dinner, so we didn't!

Visited for the first time in a while with friends recently. There was space on a Sunday night and we enjoyed a selection of dishes, all cooked well. The fish and chips looked particularly good, with a massive piece of cod. Prices fair, not cheap but not too expensive. Drinks prices were steep though. A fine place for a decent... More

Regularly travelling as we do, from Salisbury to the South Hams in Devon, we were lucky enough to discover the California Country Inn fairly early on. We’ve been enjoying their excellent menus for nearly four years and have always been delighted with the fare. Whether it’s Afternoon Tea, Evening Dinner or Sunday Lunch, they cannot be faulted, in fact I... More

We were staying on the Colmer estate and walked to the California Cross. The staff were polite and friendly, the comments on the manager I have read I find odd, as we had some banter with him and he seemed friends and polite enough. We all enjoyed our dinner and our eldest daughter said it was the best fish and... More

Arrived at the Campsite nearby after a 7 hour journey and were delighted to be able to walk across to the Inn. We were seated quickly despite it being busy and had our order taken straightaway. Both our meals were well cooked and hot and very welcome after our long day. We visited again in the week and had different... More
