Pub number 34 as we work our way round all the pubs on Dartmoor. I have been here before after a long walk on the moor a few years ago, and I was keen to return.

This is a great place to stay for those searching for cosy and simple. The family room was so warm and welcoming after a day out on the cold moors in November. The staff were friendly, rooms were nice and clean, the breakfast fantastic and we had a very enjoyable evening meal in the pub warming ourselves by the fire.

Made an impromptu visit hoping for a lunch on a Sunday while out walking with our Border Terrier. Although not having a booking mine host went out of his way to find us a table near the fire and welcomed the dog too ( we were prepared to eat in the garden). A comprehensive but unpretentious menu, very reasonably priced....
