“Steak & Ale pie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We called in on 12/03/13 bitterly cold evening, had the pie...it was to die for, so delicious and tender, and perfect for a cold night. Would so recommend it. Service very good.

We're glad you loved the pie! It's so popular sometimes the kitchen feels like a pie factory. But so worth it when we know you're enjoying it! Thanks again.

“Delicious Mezze, Antipasto and Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

A really nice little evening restaurant. Our food was delicious. We shared the set Mezze and antipasto as starters and these were lovely, followed up by two fresh, tasty and flavour packed pizzas. The nettle beer and gin cocktails were also fab.

Warm and friendly service and reasonably priced

“Good hearty meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

There wasn't as much choice as some restaurants but that's not neccessarily a bad thing. The portions were large and beautifully cooked. Staff were lovely but on quiet nights it may lack atmosphere.

“A Local Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

I have a wheat allergy, so find it hard to have a nice lunch out. That was until I found Robertsons!!! They do gluten free sandwiches, cakes (their orange sponge is to die for) and even pizzas. The owner was so helpful and really cares about his food and business. I was also impressed to find out, that they do home deliveries WOW, such a rarity in Tavistock, I will defiantly be taking advantage of this service.
A wonderful cafe, with delicious food, and fantastic service :)

“Best Pizza, best service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Roberton's is THE most fantastic restaurant with 100% organic food and drinks! There is no doubt in my mind that organic wine is so much better than the stuff full of preservatives, and a lovely glass of Merlot goes really well with a pizza! Seth and Sally, the owners, are very friendly and welcoming, as are all their staff and go out of their way to cater for people on special diets (such as gluten-free: and yes! They do a gluten-free pizza).
Must phone and book for weekend evenings or holidays as they get busy. Go there..... or miss out big time!
