We can not recommend this little restaurant highly enough. As we were visiting the area with friends and had previously eaten here, we decided to have lunch at Whiddons - luckily we had booked, as the restaurant became extremely busy and sadly some customers had to be turned away, as there was no room left.
Once again, we must compliment the chef on the delicious taste and quality of the food that was served. One of our group remarked, "the best fish and chips I have ever tasted".
The atmosphere was cosy and the staff were very friendly.
If you are ever in the area, you must visit Whiddons Eatery.

What a surprise this intimate, little restaurant was for us! It is SOOO charming! If you want to dine in a place that looks like a story-book English room, this is the place for you. I would have given it a 10 based on the decor alone, but the food was every bit as nice! It was a perfect setting for a delicious meal, served to us by the owner. I'm a vegetarian and was delighted by all the veggies. Try the stilton cheesecake! It's like a crustless quiche but cheesier. Oh, and the lemon zest cake. Yum. It was all good and just so ~ well ~ so English looking. A real find!

This lovely little eatery was a real find. There was a set price menu and worth every penny at just under £25 for three courses and coffee. Service was fiendly and efficient but not at all rushed. The food was excellent, freshly cooked, hot and included a very nice selection of vegetables, saute and boiled new potatoes, broccoli, swede cooked with honey, parsnip crumble. You can take your own alcohol, no corkage and shops very nearby you can pop out to. We will definately return.

It was a bitterly cold day when we visited Chagford and we just wanted something hot but not heavy. We enjoyed some delicious soup, and were then tempted with the lemon drizzle cake - service was excellent, food fantastic, and if we ever visit Chagford again we will be sure to return.
