We met family here for lunch whilst on holiday and we sat in the bar area rather than the restaurant. We received a very friendly welcome in this lovely little cosy pub. There was a good range of food on the menu, suitable for vegetarians as well as meat and fish lovers. The food was tasty and good portion sizes.... More

We went here late on a Saturday night, they were kind enough to fit us in, the food was very good, service was excellent and we would definitely go again.

We ate here a few years ago and have not been back (not because we didn't like it just that it hadn't come on our radar). Today we returned - it was lovely ! We met friends, and had a lovely well cooked meal. Only criticism was that the meal we had (chicken with cream and mushroom sauce) was a... More

This is a fantastic pub, who cater for everyone. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. They have an upstairs for kids with so much to keep them occupied during meals and there are cameras with TV's downstairs so you can keep an eye on the kids at all times. The toilets are full with toiletries for your use.... More

What a pleasurable lunchtime visit this was. Didn't realise the pub didn't open until 12.00 and arrived about ten to but the landlord Matt Smith noticed us looking at the sign on the door and immediately opened and gave us a warm welcome. The food was good and plentiful, the beer was from a local brewery on Dartmoor. The beer... More

The restaurant was extremely busy and noisy yet the service was quick as the owners and their staff were determined to make to look after their customers. Two of us had Moroccan steak and chips, unfortunately the chips were luke warm and were returned to be... More

Thinking of were to stop for lunch today and thought on in advance the trout and tipple. Tried a while ago (2016) and missed the lunch slot. However today we were greeted to new owner Matt, who sat us down by the fire!! Lovely, considering it was a busy Sunday and there was laughter and great atmosphere all round. Very... More

I cannot recommend this place more highly - and this comes from somebody with a lot of experience being a paying customer in most (nearly all!) the pubs and restaurants locally. From as soon as you walk through the door, this place has great ambience – two log-burners in the main bar, slate floors and welcoming smiles. So far, so... More
