What a gem find in Ottery St Mary! Thoroughly enjoyed our surprise Sunday roast today. The chef chose the dishes bearing in mind our dietary requirements. Great service, great atmosphere. Quirky decor. Delicious food. Recommend!

I last reviewed this place about three years ago. It's a small place on a side street a short distance from the centre of the town. The look is 'shabby chic' and the style is unusual. No menu, the chef cooks what he likes and...More
