Stopped on the way to Appledore (Devon). Arrived during the afternoon, parked outside the room, and we were approached by a lady (turned out to be the owner) asking if we needed a drink. Very soon we had 2 pints of excellent beer. The room itself was marvellous - very spacious with a huge bed. Dinner was excellent, although portions... More

We stayed overnight again on our way to Devon. Again a lovely welcome, same massive, comfortable beds, and a stunning breakfast. Room was very clean, lots of room, car parked right outside the room. A nice lady behind the bar recommended some Stones Ginger wine for my wife who was feeling a little under the weather and it really did... More

Lovely property and warm friendly staff. Room was large and really comfortable making it excellent value. I didn't have time to sample the food but would have liked to. Only down side for me was the wet room floor! Remember to take your towel from the bed before entering the wet room. I had to go back for mine and... More

Used as a stop off on the way to Cornwall. When we arrived the pub had just closed and was not due to be open again until 6.30pm. Room in the stables was ready and was a great surprise - large bed, tables and chairs, tea & coffee making facilities, large wet room and a tv. Using the information in... More

We went there specifically to see the entertainment offered, and without doubt the Acoustic Strawbs last Friday (15th April) were well worth the travel, The food before the gig was well presented and tasted great, served in a reasonable time, not to expensive at all, considering its generous portions. We followed this up the following week with another trip from... More

We visit this pub on a regular basis. It is comfortable enough to feel like a home from home but special enough to make you feel you've been away for days. The food is amazing and the beer very well kept. You can't beat it.
