I only have one negative comment about the Cleve and there is absolutely nothing anyone can do about it... Parking. The Cleave only has about 5 spaces so generally you have to park on the road. Thankfully, Lustleigh is a beautiful little place so walking about the village is no hardship!
Everything else about The Cleave is just spot on! Loads of choices on the menu, great quality food, huge portions, great value (I only paid £104 for three courses & drinks for four of us). The ribs were to die for! The manager/landlord was great, really friendly but not too 'in your face' and the waitress helping him out was also very pleasant.
Really good all round - we will be back for sure.
