Smashing little country pub with bags of character without being in any way pretentious - just the way country pubs should be. Very enjoyable Sunday lunch carvery with friendly service and very well organised given the current restrictions. Well worth a visit.

Local produce was the initial selling point for us. The staff were very pleasant and the meal very enjoyable. We will certainly return next time we visit Devon.

This pub/restaurant is a gem. We went there last night for our second visit since lockdown eased. The welcome and food were fantastic. The lamb burger was second to non with great chips, very hot and freshly cooked. We will be back.
