Stopped for a quick lunch while visiting outdoor pool in Chagford. Nice little beer garden but inside very dated. Good selection for lunch-baguettes, cheese board, ploughman’s as well as hot meals. Reasonable prices and quick service.

Yes, but you would need to ring the landlady first. She would probably require a deposit since if you cancelled or DNA'd then she would loose a lot of revenue. Try her and see.....good luck.
