We ate recently at the Peter Tavy on a busy night and were lucky to get a table. Dogs are welcome, ours laid out by the fire and there were a couple in the bar. There is a good choice of very tasty food, I'd say specialities are meat and fish. There was a warm and friendly welcome - I'd... More

We were visiting friends at a nearby campsite and were recommended your pub for our evening meal. We had a wonderful meal which every one of the 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed. The food was obviously cooked on site ( not bought in and reheated). It was very busy the staff, though rushed off their feet were very efficient, attentive... More

After nearly being blown away it was great to revisit the Peter Tavy after about 20 years to find it had lost none of its charm. Had a lovely 3 course lunch with some very well kept local ale. It was busy but we were lucky enough to get a table, a varied menu I had the curry which was... More

Delicious meals with interesting options available - not your standard pub/restaurant dishes which made a welcome change. Friendly service and very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit. Only slight negatives were it could have done with being a degree or two warmer and the chairs weren't particularly comfortable but overall it wasn't enough to affect the experience.

If we want to eat out, the Peter Tavy Inn is our usual choice in the Tavistock area (it helps that you can take your dogs!). Friendly people serving you an imaginative range of good food and drink make it an enjoyable choice for lunch or dinner - or just a pint. Great for families or friends. Would recommend it... More

Two of us went for lunch in the old part of the Inn which we like as it has lots of character, although today it was a bit cold in the little alcove we were in. The food was very good, especially the chicken, ham and leek pie. A very generous portion and very tasty, but I couldn't manage a... More

Friendly welcome. Excellent service. Delicious meal. Recommend the steak and stilton pie and minted lamb casserole and sticy toffee pudding. You get good portions of vegetables not over cooked and good selection of desserts.
