Travelling around Britain we had an appointment in Bideford and selected this place online to be close by. We were very happy we did. As another reviewer has said we had the best sausage and mash ever! We were very happy to have an enormous dish of beautifully cooked veges ( something we have craved after 3 weeks of travelling)....

Had probably the best sausage and mash that I have ever eaten. The sausages come from a local butcher and are really tasty. The dish was served with a side of fresh veggies in a dish almost as large as the main. There was broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cabbage, mange tout and green beans, very nice. One of the nicest things... More

It's not until you taste fresh fish that you remember how good it is, of course it helps if it is cooked and served well - which it was. The "other half" had sausage and mash - they were huge - but he managed. Expected the pub to be noisy as it is sandwiched between a road and a railway... More

Random visit for Sunday lunch. Very clean and tidy with great pub food . Dogs are welcome . Vegetarians are welcome 😃. I would recommend a visit ,it seemed quite for a Sunday diner time. Will certainly be returning soon with the family. Only criticism was that I think the owners could have been a lot more welcoming .

We had amazing food here which were really big portions! The owners were both really friendly and the pub is really cute. You definitely don't need a starter though (we shared one), highly recommend the steak (get the peppercorn sauce with it, best we've ever had!) and gammon.

I was a woman travelling alone, not expecting too much from pub accommodation - and I was very pleasantly surprised. I was given one of the cottages, which was very pretty, private, comfy and spotlessly clean. I chose to eat breakfast in the inn (and it was delicious) but was also offered the option of a breakfast tray in the... More

My parents asked me to write this review for them for when they visited us close to this Public House. We discovered that they offered the use of their carpark to facilitate their camper. We had nights out in this establishment and made good use of their restaurant. The food was of excellent quality with outstanding portions, which made for... More
