“Still a pleasant pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Visited again recently, the food was OK, nothing spectacular but fairly good value standard pub fare. A band was playing with a lively atmosphere, OK prices. Best for a drink, head to the White Hart for food.

“Superb welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

We stopped in on a quiet Monday lunchtime and received a warm friendly welcome in a nice pub with friendly locals enjoying their christmas break. The bar lady was helpful and chatty, evenpopping the kettle on for one of our party who just wanted a cuppa.

The menu looks good and pretty extensive but we just wanted a quick sarnie and a pint (and a game of dominos or two). The sandwiches were fresh, well, filled and handmade. The beer (Doombar) was equally well presented.

All in all definately worth a visit if you're passing.

“Good food, nice pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here in late Dec, not many places open in the village however the pub was and we were pleased to stay here for lunch. Good atmosphere and great food, even though we just had sandwiches they were delicious and served with loads of crisps. Played a friendly game of dominos and the landlady was cheery and helpful. Couple of pints of Doom Bar were pleasantly consumed before we left. Well recommended.

“It is as good inside as it looks outside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Yes it is a pub and it is full of local people eating and enjoying themselves. The food and atmosphere is really great. The staff are a great team led by Phil and Nicky. It is best to book for a meal in the evenings, especially at weekends as it gets very busy. There is a good beer garden and, if you have had too much to drink to drive home, they may be able to put you up in their accommodation (which is first class).

Situated in the centre of the town with car parking round the corner it is an ideal location, not only to eat, but to stay and visit the beautiful South Hams of Devon.

“Fantastic !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Ate here on 2nd September, very friendly service, food cooked to order.
Landlord apologised for the wait - but when good food is cooked to order it is always worth the wait - far better than 5 mins in the micro !
HAND CUT CHIPS!!!
Why is it so difficult for so many others to make a meal out of making a meal ??

Beer excellent too.

10 out of 10
