This place is by far the best place to eat in Devon . At first we were expecting terrible food , but what came out was just amazing ! The food was just fantastic , the staff were very friendly and the landlord was very funny we will almost certainly be back when we're on holiday in South Devon .

I visited this restaurant twice last week, frst with my wife and then with two more friends. The first night was the Wednesday night special 'Posh fish and chips', which meant fish and chips with prosecco thrown in for £10, and then for a more formal meal in the restaurant, as opposed to the bar. The cooking was outstanding both... More

We were staying at a campsite a couple of miles away from this lovely inn. We arrived on our first night in Devon just before meals were to be stopped serving. Some locals were shuffled out of a cosy table by the bay window and we were all set for some tasty homemade meals. A similar timing on our second... More

We visited here as we were staying at a campsite nearby. First impressions the landlord welcomed us and was very friendly. Excellent pub food just what was required on a chilly evening nice pub atmosphere and prices fairly reasonable for the quality of food delivered

Came here for an evening meal as near to where we were staying. Prices looked steep for pub food but we hoped that the portion sizes would justify the price. They didn't. Huge cod that our eldest got aside, the portions were small and I would have left hungry had it not been for the fact that youngest left a... More

Having booked in the restaurant, we were not disappointed by the food. The lobster was excellent and plentiful and the lamb was just as tasty. To top it all, the service was great and the head waiter had a very good rap-our with all the guests. Although there were elements of the menu that were a little pricey, overall it... More

We went for Sunday lunch and found the staff to be helpful, polite and cheerful. The menu choice was good - a little overpriced maybe for a Sunday roast especially with no nice views but the food was hot, promptly served and tasty. A great place to eat so long as you are not looking for a good view or... More

The California Country Inn advertises SUBDAY LUCH £10.45. Sounds great. We booked. Staying at a local Caravan Site is was just what we needed for our first weekend in Devon. We were met and found our table reserved for us. At this point I have to say the staff were briiliant, very attentive and genuine. No problem there then. The... More
