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

I was a little apprehensive about visiting having seen some of the reviews on here, but had arrived at the campsite opposite at 6pm after a 5 hour extremely hot journey I was in need of sustenance and a pint. Contrary to other folks I thought the landlord was smashing. He was one of those curmudgeonly charming gents with a... More

We popped in this pub for a family meal whilst staying at a nearby campsite. The staff were friendly and helped set a table for four adults and three kids. Whilst everything for us adults was satisfactory, the childrens tikka massala was far too spicy for our 3 year old toddler who normally enjoys a medium curry. When trying to... More

Visited the California a few times during a recent trip to the area. We thoroughly enjoyed it on each occasion and felt that the staff dealt superbly with everything thrown at them! During one visit we were shocked at the manner in which a customer spoke to the manager , Jonathan. Even so he handled it superbly. Beer , wine... More

Thirteen of us descended on the California Country Inn on the second day of our holiday and we liked it so much we went back four times! All the staff, particularly Jonathan the manager, could not have been more friendly or accommodating and even gave us some wonderful suggestions for making the most of the area on our holiday... our...

We stayed at the campsite over the road last week and ate 4 times at the Calfornia - 3 dinners & a breakfast - as we so enjoyed the atmosphere and food. We were a fairly large group and our dietary requirements were happily catered for. The meals were lovely on each visit and Jonathan, in particular, was very welcoming... More
