Visited as it was on the list of recommendations for food on trip advisor and it was a recommendation well worth taking. The menu was huge, the portions were generous and the food was flavourful. I would definitely recommend it.

Been a number of times. Never disappointed. Great food with plenty of choice and an even greater choice of ales and ciders. Good atmosphere. Dogs are welcome. Cyclists too! Best approached from Whiddon Down but each of the routes in are pleasant drives. Highly recommended

About
Description
The Tom Cobley Tavern is a traditional public house nestled in the quiet pretty country village of Spreyton which has a population of approximately 300 people, a primary school, a community shop and a More beautiful church dating from the 14th century. Tom Cobley, celebrated in the folk song describing his fateful journey to Widecombe Fayre, was a considerable landowner in the parish and is believed to be buried in the churchyard. The Tavern has a traditional bar with open fire and a snug area where a host of real ales and ciders are served. There is an attractive dining room and an adjoining dining area, which opens onto a beautiful garden with country views. Home cooked food using as much local produce as possible is served daily, with a separate lunchtime and evening menu available, including a daily specials board. Dogs are welcome in the bar and snug areas only. The Tavern also provides accommodation with 5 modern en-suite rooms with fantastic views over Dartmoor. Less
