Been visiting this place for the last 25+ years. Tonight had a lovely meal both landlord and landlady the perfect hosts. Valentine's Eve, met with a nice glass of free bubbley candles on tables and chocs. This place is a real gem, loved by locals in all seasons. Welcoming to travellers too. It is what it is !! A very isolated place, always warm and cosy serving very good food. Can't please all the people all of the time but the staff try to please as many as posible. If you want a posh bistro pub, then stay in town. It's rural and beautiful just like Dartmoor.

I love this pub!

I have eaten here many times over the years whilst visiting Dartmoor National Park. The building has a 'what you see is what you get’ appeal - old, disjointed, wooden panelled, creaky floorboards, beams to duck under and proper pint beer tankards.

However, on the night of visiting, with a party of nine friends and family, we were more than a little disappointed. Banished to the far corner of the pub as we had a child with us, we were far away from the famous, ever burning fire. There were many popular items missing off the menu, some which we were told about, some which we found about at the point of ordering. The food, which itself was excellent, arrived in dribs and drabs, with some meals being finished off before others had arrived, with two complete meals having to be followed up on as they were forgotten completely, the bar staff insisting they were never ordered in the first instance.

The cost of the meals, which is pricey, is usually offset by the welcome, the location, the atmosphere and the views. I have had excellent service here in the past, and I am willing to put this down as a one off, but this review is based on that one experience. I shall be returning in the future.

Fingers crossed I have a better experience ...

For those who love open spaces this is one of the best pubs in the country, both because of the magnificent location and for the fact that, take away the cars, you could be back 150 years in this unspoilt rugged old house.
The range of beers was small enough to be well kept and fresh. The seating comfortable and unpretentious. Dogs and walkers welcome, which suited our party well.
The food is also good and unpretentious. Our group fell on the steak pie and the rabbit pie; both were quite delicious, though we thought that they should have been priced at £8 rather than £12.
There were only two complaints: 1) one of our group wanted to run a tab and was asked to hand over his credit card. This may stem from bitter experience on the part of the landlord, but the implied distrust does not make customers feel welcome or eager to stay long. Alas, friendliness is not too common in this part of the world. 2) while the pub is to be congratulated for serving pasties (few pubs do these days) the chap who ordered one described it as ‘flabby pastry full of minced stuff’. All easily remedied of course. However, despite these reservations the pub was full of customers looking satisfied. We shall return, if not in a great hurry.

This is a classical old pub in a beautiful place. Enjoy what it offers and if you don't like it then move on and don't moan. It is what it is and there are not many left. No pub can be all things to all people.
BIKERS: Great stop for a quick glass of lemonade and a pie n chips if you are about to take a sedate ride down the road apiece.. Use your mainstand outside if you want to avoid being blown over by a coachful of grockles.....
