Lovely old pub with lots of charm, low ceilings and a huge fireplace. Friendly welcome, local ales. Had a nice atmosphere. The menu looked good but we weren't there for the food! Just a quick pint which was lovely!

Very disappointed with the food. Burger van quality, without burger van prices. The salad garnish was the tastiest thing, everything else was bland, even the chips. Veggie burger was a deep fried, greasy, budget pattie. Won't return unfortunately.

This pub is a classic olde worlde pub in the historic town of Modbury, it is what it very old with all the charm that goes with it. Therefore do not expect the pub to be of immaculate appearance for one it would not suit!...More
