We entered the Brauton Inn and the heat hit us,(It was cold outside !) beautiful log fires for a warm comfortable environment. . The barmaid BIG smile and warm welcome. We were offered a table in the dining room or a table by the fire in the bar area,which we took.
Advertised as "Pie Week" we had the pie. . . A huge man-size portion of beautifully cook beef in Burgundy wine. . Thin puff pastry lid, three green veg which consisted of, pea's, French green beans and broad beans, and a stack of what looked like home made chips, Best pie ive ever had in a " pub" we also had a portion of cauliflower cheese and crisp potatoes.
Great selections of beers and draught largers. . . If i had one gripe, it would have been the Cauliflower cheese,It was very runny (which suggest it had been frozen) & abit more cheese !
Staff were all smiles, friendly and helpful. . Great place, would deffo recommend "The Pie"

A very cosy place, nice and warm. The atmosphere was great. As the starters came, I commented on how small my portion was. The waitress was quite helpful, but she couldn't pronounce 'cutlery' right; she said "Cutree". As the main course came out, I watched in horror as the frozen main was placed infront of my father. He felt to see what temperature it was, and was extremely shocked and outraged to find that it was frozen! My mother called for the waitress, who took it away and evidently placed it in the microwave! As it came out for the second time, the yorkshire pudding was stuck to the plate and had the texture of leather! The pudding was nice for me, as the chocolate brownie tasted brilliant! However, my sisters desert claimed to be a 'donut' but looked far from it. It looked like a fried tapeworm! Do not go here!

We visited on Saturday 24th Nov during one of those terrible rain storms. It was a delight to enter this beautiful building and be welcomed and seated straight away. Our waitress really went out of her way to look after us and the food was superb. Well cooked, hot, and nicely presented. This is one place we will visit again when here for the weekend or on holiday.

Went for a Sunday lunch for the first time, from entering this beautiful building, we were made to feel most welcome, the log fires were wonderful and really enhanced the atmosphere. The service was very good as was the meal itself. We will definitely return and recommend.

This is such a unique location for a restaurant overlooking the tidal River Tor and adjacent to the Tarka Trail to which there is direct access from the lovely gardens. The inside of the Inn is full of character and we sat by the open log fire which was a delight. The menu is varied in content and price. It was a weekday lunchtime and after ordering we sat,and sat and sat. Eventually we asked for our bread and olives platter which took a further 10 minutes. Following another wait our main course arrived and was good. No ice cream to go with the apple fritters-
no excuse for this, maybe just bad stock control!!!! We arrived at 13.10 and finally left at 15.30,
Thank heavens we were not in a hurry!
