Went for a few drinks here after good reviews from the locals and I wasn't disappointed we knew it was dog friendly but they were allowed in most of the pub and loved the beer garden stayed there that long we decided to have some food which was delicious and great portion size 😊 will be going back tonight 🍺🍕😁

Have not been before and came on the recommendation of locals who said this was very much on the up. We were not disappointed with nice food & generous portions at a reasonable price given the portion size. A few service niggles, mainly I suspect due to the popularity & I would very much suggest booking as the night we... More

We were recommended this pub from our B&B in Axminster and dropped in on a Thursday evening. We were surprised to get the last table as everywhere was reserved. The food was excellent, huge portions and freshly cooked. Would definitely recommend this pub.

Saturday night and an excellent meal and service. We had pil pil - the best we've had including those in Spain! Calamari, again delicious although maybe a little skimpy on the portion size compared to the pil pil ;) For main course we both opted for the specials, I had brill with a creamy seafood sauce. It came with a... More
