As it's my Grandad's local we always come here when we go to visit him, whether it's for dinner or just a drink. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff members and very reasonably priced food. Also received excellent hospitality when they held his fiance's wake here a couple of years ago.

Waited half and hour to be told they no longer had one of the meals we had ordered 😠 so all in all waited over an hour for the food to finally arrive and the meat was tough and dry it had obviously been sat there all day. We were not told there would be a wait on food. DO... More

Traditional local but with super food - served fast and quality. the catch of the day is consistently good, fish, mash, samphire, pulse and a sauce. Suggest you book at popular times. I've tried 3 other restaurants/pubs in the area and this is the best. Only poor thing is that there wifi didn't work.

Can't fault the Sunday roast we had last week, both had lamb, asked for extra gravy and was graciously delivered. The meal was superb, absolutely Scrummy. Service good. Can't wait to return and maybe try the steak & kidney pie, the people on the next table recommended. Fantastic

Went for Sunday Lunch with family. The food was delicious. Cooked well, plenty of vegetables. The staff were so friendly, made us feel very welcome. Service was good. Loved the upstairs for eating. lovely décor, real cottage feel to it. will definitely visit again. The meat raffle was a fun idea.

What a fantastic little gem of a place we found in The Devon Dumpling. Excellent staff who were very warm, welcoming and attentive, they were great, excellent cleanliness, and as for the food served there, it was delicious. In the few weeks we were in the area we visited this pub three times for a meal. The gammon steak, pineapple... More

First time eating here, the food was pleasant enough and at the price it was you couldn't really complain. The only real thing that let it down was the service, very slow and we felt rather ignored when waiting to be served at the bar. The food was good enough so would probably go again.

I have lived in Torbay for 40 years and for 37 of them have been going to the Devon Dumpling, it has changed a lot over those years going from a local pub where my husband played darts for their team and a lot of social outings to at heart a pub/restaurant. It has recently been refurnished very nicely and... More
