We moved to Dartmouth just over a week ago and our new neighbors brought us here for a treat after spending 11 days cleaning and painting. We were greeted by very friendly and accommodating staff and had a drink outside in the garden before perusing the menu. A small but comprehensive menu with a handful of specials. I picked the...

We are currently staying near this pub and have had 2 wonderful meals here during our week away. The food is of a very high quality and we were made to feel very welcome. We thought the menu was well priced. We can't comment on the puddings as we were too full after our starters and mains! The menu is,...

Staying locally at mounts farm campsite, we were looking for a good family meal close by. I am glad that we rang and booked a table as it is clearly popular. The food was clearly home cooked with care and quality. Lots of choice and great value. The friendly and attentive bar staff well worth a mention too. Many thanks.

Stayed locally with family and dog and this was the only place to eat within walking distance.

Every other night we were treated to freshly cooked, non-fast...

My partner, our dog Buster and I recently returned from an amazing week camping at Mounts Farm in East Allington. We discovered we could walk from the campsite, through a woodyard and across some lovely fields to the most welcoming pub/restaurant. We were immediately welcomed by Adrian and Bramble the dog. All three of us were welcome inside and out...
