My family and I decided to visit this pub for dinner whilst on holiday because of the reviews on here. We looked at the menu online and were all excited about going. They have a seperate menu Thurs to Sun when they have a chef working. I phoned ahead to reserve a table and check that dogs were allowed in... 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

Came for sunday lunch, good welcome and friendly place and good service, locals being loud (in a nice way) in the bar. Only a few people eating which is a shame for the owners as expected it to be busier. Main of roast beef was very nice, veg took a little time to arrive so meat had cooled a bit... More

Wanted a quiet catch up with a friend, we tucked ourselves away in the dining room with a glass of wine after a friendly greeting from Louise the land lady, delicious meal, nicely served. Will definitely return and would recommend.

I organised a dinner for 25 Colleagues and was attracted by the varied menu and reasonable prices. The land-lady could not have been more helpful- an up-to-date menu was provided and the entire scope of their repertoir opened to us. We issued the orders in advance and extra staff were brought in to accomodate us all. We found a warm... More

We stumbled across this place whilst simply passing through and booked a table for bank holiday Monday. The food was great, all cooked freshly. The staff and locals were extremely friendly and the bonus was it was bingo night!! Would highly recommend this pub if you are after great food surrounded by local charm.
