“Lovely country pub.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

We visit here frequently, the food is great and very well priced. The atmosphere is lovely and all the staff are very attentive, especially David the landlord.

“Cold Comfort Farm”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The landlord here is obviously not happy in his job. He seems unhappy and unhelpful. Time for a change. Food mediocre and fairly pricey.

“Loving the fire...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012 via mobile

Visited last night for a meal.
Very nice welcome, particularly from the 2 little pooches behind the bar.
Staff were friendly and courteous, the place had a perfect blend of rustic and modern and the fire, well... Toasty...

The meals were fantastic, not waiting too long or having people hover over you.

The additional hour spent in front of the other fire round the corner was sublime...

Shall definitely be visiting again.

“HAVE A JUG OF PIMMS!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

I usually go here in the summer and sit outside with a jug of Pimms- so civilized! The Landlord Dave is always attentive, and the pub is a pretty thatched Devon Inn. There is a lot of choice on the menu and prices are good. In the winter of course there is a fire burning in the grate. You MUST go just to look at the beautiful old fashioned cash till- its so ornate and is often the talking point for new visitors
