Very busy in the main pub but they were happy to open up the evening dining area for us which looked very cheerful with a Valentine's theme. There was an extensive menu with both snacks and light bites. All our choices came well presented and good portions. Will definitely visit again when in Great Torrington

Took a chance and tried this pub, the food was good and so was the service. Good range of food and bonus of a cheap Christmas roast. The pricing was excellent and would certainly visit again. plenty of car parks nearby.
