This place was really REALLY good! The pizzas were outstanding. They didn't taste or look like your normal 'chain' restaurant pizzas - they were what I would imagine are the sort of thing you might actually get in a good pizza restaurant in Italy. We had a lovely evening and will definitely be returning.

A very welcoming start by a young man who explained the menu and reserved us a table for later in the evening.
The fish choices were particularly good with plenty of variety including hake, scallops etc. The pizzas were the best I have seen for some time. The seating arrangements were good with lovely views over a courtyard garden and tables.
Locals were clearly using the bar and, for once, there was no conflict between drinkers and diners. All had their place and were made very welcome.

Having heard great things about the food we were disappointed with our selections. Far too much sauce spoilt the main course....no courtesy check. Shame as venue itself is lovely.

Met friends here as equidistant from our homes and would choose it again. Very friendly staff, good food and atmosphere. Bar area has a 'local' feel and the separate dining area is well laid out - our table had a view of the pass. Recommend.

It's a short drive from Bovey to the Inn, and they will drive you there for 22 pounds, round trip. The fish and chips were very good, and the lamb pie that was on the special menu was outstanding. Great service in the bar area of the Inn. Good selection of beer.we went at night so not sure about outdoor seating or view.
