Great location; lovely character; food was delicious. Book beforehand as small number of tables and all were eventually taken. Warning- park the car in the main street and walk the short distance to the pub

Came here for lunch, deviating from the coast path and it was well worth it. Quiet (weekday lunch) but nice bar, ales and good food. Nice garden as well. One man service so not very fast and soup (although tasty) had spent to long in the microwave. But will come again if in area.

We were holidaying in Devon and picked this pub out of the AA guide for Sunday lunch. Roast beef was perfectly cooked, and plenty of it. Reasonably priced. Service was a little charmless, and slow. When we arrived there was a small queue at the bar, but no-one apparently serving. Someone did arrive and when we reached the front he asked if we had reserved a table. We said we had called and left a message on their answerphone, but as no-one had called back we were not sure. "We've been busy" was the reply. We had called around 10.45am and it was now 1pm, and the pub less than half full all the time we were there. When we went to the bar to order desserts, again there was a small queue and no-one serving. Took 20 mins of waiting to pay the bill (no 'how was everything?' Just a transaction). Not one to return to, which is a shame because the food was nice.

Just enjoyed a two night stay at the Tower and had a really great time in this lovely country pub. The room was ok, not brilliant but clean and cosy and much as you would expect from a country inn - not boutique or pretentious in any way and sufficient for our needs.

The pub itself is atmospheric, perhaps a tad shabby in places but it adds to the atmosphere - quality beers and ciders on tap (Beer festival on which was an added bonus!!). Friendly, welcoming staff and a good, laid back feeling about the place. We ate on the Saturday evening and the place was packed - not sure if this was due to the Beer Festival or whether it's always this busy - anyway, I would recommend booking as most tables were taken. The food was excellent - and locally sourced which is always a bonus. Great, hearty full English breakfast complemented our stay. We would the Tower without hesitation.

One word of warning - very tricky entrance between houses, due to 'nasty neighbour' installing poles and sharp boulder! I just squeezed in with a Freelander, bigger 4x4s probably wouldn't make it and it's difficult to park in the picturesque village, but it is worth it.

This pub is amazing nestled in the village next to the old ruined tower. It's got seating everywhere and parking. We stopped as a break on our 3 mile hike around the nature reserve and village it was a lovely sunny day so we sat out the back in a beautiful multi terraced beer garden.
The staff were friendly as were the locals a proper village pub atmosphere that i have been missing since i moved away. We had a cheddar ploughman's and a prawn sandwich both were superb and super fresh. I would recommend this pub to all.
