“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Great steaks and Sunday roasts! Good selection of food and ales. Plenty of tables and nice cosy atmosphere. Restaurant is separate from main bar which has live sport on from time to time.

“Lovely pub with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Popped in needing food and a drink on a Thursday evening. Good atmosphere and great unique decor in the dining area. Beer was good, food was excellent and not bad value . Would go again and recommend.

“Weary travellers welcome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Cycling from Plymouth needed food, drink and shelter from the midday sun. Although I arrived looking a wreck before they were officially open the staff were overwhelmingly friendly and welcoming making feel at home. The food was delicious and great value for money with the pub full of rustic charm and history just like all good pubs should be!

“The best curry in the West Country.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

We discovered this pub a few years ago but as our routine changed we neglected to visit ....... our loss !

Robin cooks the most tasty curry, unsurpassed at restaurants in the west country and Wendy is the most cheerful and welcoming host. It is a joy to visit, we both envy the locals having such a pub on their doorstep.

It was such a delight to return and discover that nothing had changed, their range of curries suits all tastes, our favourite is the Jalfrez, the care that Robin has put in his research to create his perfect curries, shows with every delicious mouth full.

The menu is varied, the beers excellent, the locals friendly, the ambiance superb, a perfect combination for a successful business,

Visitors to the area ...... please do not miss a culinary delight and for the regulars who are fortunate enough to live nearby ...... you are very, very lucky !

“excellent hospitality & food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

The food was ace. My partner & I had a birthday celebration lunch. I had a dhansak curry & he had steamed fish with potatoes. Robin & Wendy keep the place running , without them the place may not be as good.
