Friendly staff but food a disaster

I recently visited the Clinton Arms for an evening meal. Initially staff were friendly up until the point of pre payment of the meal however, the whole experience was let down by the wait for food - 40 minutes when there were no other obvious diners in the restaurant.

Visited on New Years Day 2014, after a pleasant 4 mile walk with 12 other walkers, supplemented by another 6 non walkers just for lunch. Despite pre-ordering most of the lunches before our walk, we waited 90 minutes for our meals and 2 of those-the soups, were sent back as inedible. The managers excuse was that he had 65 other...

We are on Christmas Eve. It was a big party of 9 and the food was excellent. The decor is lovely and it felt as if we were in a good restaurant rather than a pub. Recommended to try this pub for a meal.

We visited this pub on the last night of our stay at Devon Cliffs, my only wish was that we'd tried there before. Absolutely lovely food. Great service. Was a bit quiet, but as it was end of season, it was understandable. Would definitely return.

Was recommended this by friends. Went there for lunch, pub virtually empty (I now know why!) went inside to be greeted by loud building noises. Oh well, at least they seem to be improving the very dated decor. Sat down and got stuck to the table, ordered our food and waited quite a while, the pub was completely empty by... More

Six of us went here for a evening meal and each one of us had no complaints with what we had ordered. The position of this pub is fantastic if you are staying on the Devon Cliffs holiday park it's only a couple of minuets from the entrance,we'll worth a visit.
