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... More

Could not recommend this pub enough. The food is excellent, and the service is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. Possibly one of the best Sunday roasts in Devon, with generous portions. Happy adults and happy kids. Thanks Ian & Adrian

Booked here for Sunday lunch during a weekend break at half term, which also happened to be Valentine's Day. The welcome and service during our meal was outstanding, attentive whilst not overbearing. We enjoyed starters to share and a mixture of the Sunday roasts on offer including the vegetarian option. The food was excellent and the portions were generous. No... More

We rode on horseback here to have Sunday lunch and apart from being put in a strange little room at the back, we had an excellent meal. Horses enjoyed the attention in the car park and we liked the fact that the roast beef was pink and not burnt to a cinder, the veg were good and best of all... More

So attentive and the food and service was exceptional. Bar Snacks before lunch. Fresh Vegetables and nothing was too much trouble. Relaxed warm and friendly atmosphere. We have visited before and will certainly return. Greatly recommend this pub.

New owners provide excellent service. At last, a sensible chef who knows how to cook sensibly portioned, attractive plates of food. Perhaps I would like another beer on tap, but that's me! Lovely welcoming coal fire. Picturesque setting in shadow of church. Whilst not our local, shall be regular visitors. Highly recommend.

Saturday night and we were the only ones dining in the pub. Naturally we were therefore wondering if the food would be up to much. Those who had starters said the mushrooms and the sharing platters were fine and we just about covered the spectrum of mains. Fish & Chips, 2 curries, 2 lamb shanks, a spaghetti bolognese, a steak...

Visited this lovely pub with family for Sunday lunch. The hosts were very welcoming offering delicious bar snacks and a warming fire for those colder days and nights. The lunch menu consists of three course but with the large portion size we all skipped out on dessert. The hosts accomadated a child in our group with a smaller portion of... More

We were staying at Flear Farm to celebrate our daughter's birthday and wanted somewhere to have dinner on the Saturday evening. Having read reviews of the Fortesque it seemed the ideal location. From the start of our enquiries to the end of the evening dinner everything went like clockwork. Adrian and Ian had laid out the dining room to accommodate... More

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat before checking into our holiday home in East Allington. Lovely friendly pub serving pub grub. I had the scampi and chips and my partner had the steak and ale pie and chips. Both meals were lovely and the excellent value. We would recommend if your staying in the area.
