“Pleasant village pub”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This old village pub is in the centre of Whitchurch, close to Tavistock and on the edge of Dartmoor. It offers a range of local real ales (Otter, St Austell and Dartmoor on my most recent visit) and has a varied pub menu. It's dog friendly, should you wish to call in after walking your four-legged friend on the moor, and is equally good for a quick drink, a snack or a more substantial meal. Nearby roadside parking is limited, but for me it's a convenient walk from home over Whitchurch Down, so usually I go there on foot.

“Wonderful Whitchurch!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I have been to this pub on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. It's in a lovely quiet spot, with moorland close at hand. Parking outside can be tricky - but there is plenty to be had just uphill by the church. The welcome is always warm and friendly and the menu extensive. Children and senior citz are also admirably catered for. Food can take a while, but has always been well worth the wait - the steaks are sumptuous. Good ales and pleasant surroundings complete the picture. This pub is extremely popular with my family and with many other relatives and friends. Heartily recommended....

“Decent but bit not all that”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Used to be a lovely old inn, like in Withnail and I, now a bit more like a chain pub but still homely enough. Decent ale and cheap steaks. Many friendly locals and puffer body warmer pseudo rahs, but worth popping in.
