Lunch with friends, I had special chicken which was excellent. I had to twist their arm to have chips instead of new potatoes. The other meals all look good. The sorbet for desert was out of this world. The only disappointment was the female bar staff. She was more interested talking to other customers she knew than serve us. The... More

Beautiful Old English Pub serving delicious food. Ambience really nice, dog friendly so if you have an aversion probably best to give it a miss. Visiting friends down here and would thoroughly recommend for either just a drink or lunch or evening meal. We had the Lemon Sole in Cream Chive Sauce with Beans and a Pea Purée - absolutely...

Me and my friend came in here and was quite lucky to have found a table for two free on a busy Friday evening. The table was situated a little awkward as one person has people standing at the bar right behind you, that is my only downside. There was a good choice on the menu. The food was of... More

A sort of village pub in the affluent part of Tavistock calling itself Whitchurch, I always felt this place had a slightly soft centred suburban feel, but it's picking up and the recent decision to offer Stannarry beers from the excellent local brewery just ack along the road helps a lot.

We all went for the fajitas with sour cream , salsa & guacamole - brilliant! Super nosh, first class table service from... More

I have always loved this pub - still do, as a pub!! But Sunday lunch was very very disappointing. We had nachos to start - @ £6.95 this was a plain rip-off. Half a bag of tortilla chips with some cheese and dips. Id have taken a bag of crisps with me to add if Id known. The roast turkey... More

I've eaten at The Whitchurch Inn before on several occasions some time ago and been unimpressed so felt it was about time I gave it another chance, wish I hadn't. My tasteless cod arrived top side down and when flipped revealed an extremely soggy batter most of which I had to remove. The accompanying chips were ok though unremarkable. It... More

It is a lovely pub, but can be difficult to park - it is always busy as it isnt very big. Fine for meat eaters, dont find it brilliant for vegetarians personally, not alot of choice. You really need to book if you want a table, fine if you just arrive ad hoc but prepared to be disappointed. Staff dont... More

Due to the floor in our kitchen not being level, or so they said we had to go out to lunch whilst the levelling compound set. Well you have to don't you? So we went to the Whitchurch Inn and enjoyed a lovely lunch by the fire. Have not been to this pub in a while and it was a... More

We visited for the first time last night. We really liked the inside of the pub, very clean and welcoming. The gent behind the bar was really very pleasant. We sat at our table after ordering drinks at the bar and waited, and waited some more. 30 mins goes by along with the non smiling waitress numerous times and we... More
