We only visited for a drink. Lovely open fire, friendly enough staff. Excellent choice of gins! But most of the pub is tables for eating, only a small space for drinkers.

Menu was a great set of pub classics - had a beautiful meal of fish and risotto. Staff were uber friendly and ambience was just right. A perfect British Gastropub experience in a beautiful village.

Dear nellie0212 Thank you so much for your lovely review and we're delighted you enjoyed your meal with us. I'm sorry that a dog was being a bit of a nuisance - we expect all of our guests to behave well; children, adults and dogs. So I'm really sorry if the dog wasn't given a warning to behave......... or something... More

Had chicken tikka masala off a specials menu but there was absolutely no taste, very bland. I was asked whether I enjoyed the meal by the waiter but after I explained what I thought the guy just disappeared without making any comment

Visiting with friends we were made very welcome by Sam. He really looked after us and it was appreciated. The food was delicious, served fast and great choice. We were very full after our main course but could not resist the cheeseboard too. Would recommend! The Inn is really cosy with a lovely atmosphere, would recommend booking at weekends as... More

Extremely organised staff. Drinks and food were swiftly ordered and delivered. Everything was cleared from our and all other tables regularly and very friendly and helpful.

It has this year (2014) been awarded the Taste of the West Gold Award - awarded for locality of produce used, ambiance and high standards of service. We are the only pub in the South Hams to hold this prestigious award. National finalists In Licensee of the Year, finalists in Devon Life Family Friendly Dining Establishment as well as previous Fish & Chip award finalists.

We welcome children with their own menu selection of home cooked food and dogs with their own Al a Bark menu!
