“Exceptional food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Visited last year and have been meaning to review for a while now.
Food was very nice - all freshly cooked and arrived quickly.
Very nice old dartmoor pub in a beautiful village.
Although a bit more expensive than normal pub food, it was very good value.

This was a lucky internet search find whilst looking for accommodation in the Tavistock area.
The inn is charming, has great character, good beer and an excellent food menu. There are sufficient tempting choices to make ordering a thought provoking process and the quality so good we immediately booked a meal for the second night of our stay. Portions are perfect.
The accommodation is in complete contrast to the inn, attractive, bright and modern with a great bathroom. Breakfast is served at the time of your choosing and is tasty and delicious,
I think the new owners have not been there a full six months as yet and there are improvements to a dining area and the carpark in progress - neither of which detracted from our stay.
There is plenty to see and do in the area especially if you like visiting gardens.

my partner booked a night here as a surprise 50th birthday treat, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was well furnished and clean with a very comfy 4 poster bed, the mini fridge had a couple of bottles of water 3 ferrero rochet chocolates and a half bottle of Champagne in the fridge. The champagne was not to my taste (Very Cheap Type) and we ran out of hot water when trying to fill the Jacuzzi in the room we only just managed to fill it to the required level!!! the only meal we had was the compementry breakfast which I found to be of good quality although there was very little choice of Cereal Corn Flakes or Bran Flakes only and only Orange Juice.

The pub was warm and welcoming on a wet night, the staff friendly and polite, although we waited a little while to be seated this was really not a problem, the food was beyond exceptions everyone said their food was great, to the extent that one of my staff member took a photo of the desert as it looked so fantastic, I had the same - it tasted sublime - heaven on a slate! A great night had by all, a smashing pub thank you to all the staff! - I would add we didn't stay at the pub - but at a holiday cottage owned by the owner in the village.

Room Tip: We stayed at Chapel Cottage owned by the Landlord - not at the pub, what a lovely cottage.

Milton Combe and the pub provide a lovely setting. We took extended family there for lunch. It was clearly popular with many tables reserved and I was glad that I had booked. The barmaid was very friendly and welcoming and the pub full of character.
However we felt that the chef wanted to be cooking somewhere else and not a country pub. We expected hearty portions of honest food. Instead we had to ask for more vegetables when we realised that one tiny bowl had been brought to share between 3. There was no problem with this and another but even smaller bowl appeared. We had enough for 2 rather than 3 even then. The children's portions were good but the choice very limited and then the desserts were tiny. The cheesecake was fancy to the point of laughable, piped onto a slate. If it had been put together properly it would have filled about three thimbles!
So great location, good beers, lovely staff but a chef who wants to be in London rather than at a country pub. It's a pity.

A beautiful setting
In Milton Combe
If you want to stay
You can book
A room.

The host is charming
And funny to boot
The staff very friendly
We had a hoot.

The food was amazing
So beautifully presented
And when the bill arrived
Our purses weren;t dented.

Under new management
I understand
I'd return again
To lend a hand
To a reputation
That's already there
My experience here
I had to share........!!

A group of us visited this pub and between us we tried everything on the fine dining menu! All of our enjoyed our meals and I would have been happy to have chosen anything from the menu. Although it was fine dining, the portions were just right. Not tiny and over pretentious, nor over large. Presentation was excellent. The pub is cosy and friendly, and although the village itself is a nightmare for parking, the pub has a huge car park behind. Though the pub does offer a good "pub grub" selection, it is the fine dining that makes it stand out. I shall definitely be returning for that special night out.
