“This pub has been shut down since April 2012 !”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

(I haven given this pub 1 star because it has shut down)

We were staying in Croyde for the week, and while driving around, saw a sign for this pub. It took us a while to locate it (following various signs through narrow country lanes) and when we finally found it, there were notices on the doors and windows stating that the pub has been shut down since April 2012 !!!!

Quite annoying really, as we did waste 30 minutes driving around trying to find it...

I have found the pub's website (attached to this review), but all useful info (contact info, directions, menus etc). seems to have been removed. Before trying to find this pub, check the website - don't waste your time trying to find it unless you're sure it's re-opened...

“Good, traditional food, modernised olde-worlde pub style”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

The variety of lunches is excellent for a small traditional country pub, with good taste and nicely presented in a dedicated restaurant room or in the bar area. The youngish owners care about the comfort and happiness levels of their customers. Definitely a place to take visitors who like traditional country Devon fare. The variety on offer for vegetarians is adequate for the occasional visit (I am one).

Went as a party of 24, everyone had three excellent courses, good choice across all courses - the puddings were divine.

“It was ok”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

We read some reveiws and decided to try it for Sunday Lunch as we could walk there from our holiday rental. I think we should have got the car out and travelled further afield ......The lamb had been warmed in the microwave so was aliitle curled round the edges, it was an ok meal but we have eaten better.
