Description: The restaurant, bar and rooms at the Weary Ploughman at Churston has been extensively refurbished to a very high standard during the last two years to provide somewhere to eat, meet or stay that is very welcoming and comfortable, but not in any way pretentious. Our menu is varied and freshly cooked using, whenever possible, produce sourced locally.

The staff are so friendly and make you welcome. The food is excellent in especially the steak.. Its a great location to meet up as there is a good size car park. There is an excellent selection of wines and also beer.

Thank you very much for your very good review of The Weary Ploughman, your kind comments are very much appreciated by everyone. We are delighted that you enjoyed your steak. Our meals are always freshly cooked to order and we try to source our good quality ingredients as locally as possible. The topside of beef served on Sundays comes from an Aberdeen Angus herd a couple of fields away, via a local butcher. Our aim is to give our customers a very enjoyable experience and we are very pleased to read such great reviews.

Spotted this place on the way into Brixham. Easily passable from the main road which is a shame as the experience offered here is excellent.

Good lunch menu, with additional (mainly fish) specials, all of which sounded appealing. Additional items, such as artisan breads and olives and starters like baked Camembert hit the spot on an autumn afternoon. Our main courses of beer battered fish with triple cooked chips and lemon,thyme and garlic chicken breast were first class. Bill for two mains, one starter, nibbles, a glass of red and a pint was just over £40. Well worth it for the quality.

Hosts were service-orientated and friendly. Refurbished modern decor, lots of space between tables.

All good.

Went to the Weary Ploughman recently; very welcoming and warm, lots of easy parking. Very good quality food: not expensive for what you get. Highly recommended.

Tip: if local, ask to join their locals club and get discounts in off peak times.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your complimentary review about The Weary Ploughman, your comments are very much appreciated. I'm sorry our triple cooked chips were not up to our usual standard when you visited us, unfortunately we had been unable to get the usual Maris Piper potatoes from our supplier and the alternatives didn't make such good chips.
