“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Now that my daughter and son-in-law have moved to Tiverton it's an ideal opportunity to try out different places to eat nearby so the Quarryman's Rest was the first on the list.
Arriving early on a cold and windy night it was virtually deserted and although we could have eaten in the bar we opted for the restaurant which was, and remained, empty. When we came to leave however the bar was heaving with lots of people eating there.
A fairly small menu, which I find is no bad thing, and good value prices too. I'd recommend the lamb shank.and my wife really enjoyed the fish course.
The only slight downside is that the car park is very small so you're probably better off parking in the street.

“Fab family Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We booked for the carvery and there were 3 huge parties in the dining room today. The other dining areas in the bar and conservatory were also full which speaks for itself. The staff coped very well and the food was plentiful and well cooked. Extremely good value for money for a carvery.

“Not worth the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We found the choice of food to be good, however service was very slow and not very attentive. The actual food was quite bland and lacked flavour, actual dining area had very little atmosphere.

“Real comfort food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a fabulous early supper here prior to a visit to the cinema, we chose the homemade steak and kidney pudding and were not disappointed , it was first class , service was nice and friendly and the bar area where we ate warm and welcoming.
