We arrived and was made very welcome, food served in small but cosy restaurant. We ordered a prawn cocktail jacket potato, so many prawns!! Scampi and chicken with chips served in a bucket, good portions! Would definitely visit again.

I have visited twice in the past few weeks and was not disappointed at all! The first time I had the baked Camembert starter which was a great portion and I didn't end up having a main! The second time I had a Sunday roast, blimey it was huge! More than generous! Absolutely lovely, great service! Couldn't complain! I will... More

We have driven past a few times over the years but on the recommendation of a friend who lives in the village we decided to stop for lunch and were glad that we did. We were given a friendly welcome and the inside of the pub is lovely with lots of character. There is a good menu and it was... More

This traditional pub/ restaurant serves good food in a small but charming restaurant, the welcome you receive is second to none. If you are traveling on the A386 Oakhampton to Great Torrington road in north devon it is well worth a visit,car parking opposite to the pub is signed by the entrance. Merton is worth a visit from visitors to... More

Having sampled many pubs within the area I can confidently say that the Malt Scoop is certainly one of the best. We dined at lunch time and were the only ones in the pub; even so there was still more atmosphere than in many other rival pubs. Having recently been restored, the Malt Scoop offers really pleasant surroundings to enjoy... More

A really homely pub that is frequented by friendly locals and visitors. The beer is well kept and the food reasonably priced, tasty and well presented. The menu is fairly extensive but not so long that the kitchen is overstretched, so the food is delivered to table in good time. There are a lot of pubs in this area that... More

Went there and waited over 45 mins for food. When It arrived chips were full of air, fat and grease. Ordered Chicken pie which turned out to be turkey and looked and tasted like slop! Lasagne had green dry pasta and full of grease in the mince. Only good thing was the burger but portions were shocking! Seen bigger portions... More
