My husband and I came across this wonderful country inn by recommendation of our friends and we are so glad we strayed off our path to Devon to give it a go!
We were greeted by friendly, smiling, young staff who told us not having a reservation was no trouble, they would find space for us even when the pub was bustling with people. They offered us a drink the moment we arrived at the bar... And what an array! My husband is an ale enthusiast and he was spoilt for choice! He was recommended 'Butcombe bitter' and thoroughly enjoyed it.
As it was a Sunday, we both opted for the roast lamb (recommended by a young chef who was picking fresh herbs right next to our table) and could not be happier with our choice. I have been disappointed with pub Sunday lunches a lot recently, almost giving up finding one worth the money, but this was not only delicious but reasonably priced!!
The meat was succulent and full of flavour, hints of garlic and rosemary coming through the unctuous, thick, perfect gravy. The potatoes were crispy and the yorkshires tender. All in all, a perfect roast lunch!
We followed that up with a delicious portion of sticky toffee pudding which looked beautiful on the plate.
All in all, we had a brilliant lunch and will definitely be coming back. Well done!
