The food may be good here but we did not get to find out. If there is a one hour wait for food why not put it on a chalk board outside rather than let potential customers take the assault course to the bar before being given the good news?

We stopped on our way to a holiday in north Devon and were really pleasantly surprised. There was lots of choice on the menu and it was reasonably priced. Food wise, it would be good to have a toddler menu as a toddler eats far less than an under 12! There's a really good outside space with play area for... More

What a great little pub we found on our way down west. It is dog friendly and they have a large car park, which was good as we have a motor home. Good staff, good food, at good prices. If you are passing through and want a nice pit stop, then this is your pub.

Freindly efficient staff, good portions of well cooked pub food at a reasonable price. Have eaten here several times over the years and never once been let down. I suspect the menu hasn't changed once in that time either but maybe there's something to be said for 'stick with what you do best '? Family freindly with play area round... More

We visited here on a Tuesday evening at 7pm without booking. We had the last available table as someone luckily had just cancelled! The landlord was very friendly and helpful. The place was packed but the staff were very efficient and took drinks orders at the table. There is a lovely varied menu and some delicious home-made desserts. The Inn... More
