We were attending a family christening at St Luke's church nearby and a buffet had been arranged here. The pub is lovely and the interior reminds me very much of a traditional local pub. There was a good selection of beer and they serve cask...ale, when we were there they had Dartmoor's Jail Ale a very good beer and well kept. I'm afraid I can't comment on wine selection but I didn't hear complaints and the Prosecco was going down well. The crowning glory of this excellent pub is the beer garden. Given we were very lucky with the weather we could make full use of this facility. Great seating areas and very nice wooden children's play areas, yes plural! We all had a really great time at the buffet. The food was of A very good standard and a nice variety. As veggies the choice for us was among the best we have had. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Would fully recommend this as a venue and would love to return as a customer for a drink.More

I went to this pub yesterday with two friends, for lunch. The menu was very varied and the food we chose was delicious and reasonably priced. The beer garden is spacious and has shady spots, for the warmer days. All round an excellent pub!

IF I COULD GIVE THIS PUB A ZERO STAR RATING I WOULD!!! FIRST OF ALL I WOULD LIKE TO SAY HOW UTTERLY APPALLED & DISGUSTED I AM AT THE TOTAL LACK OF HUMAN COMPASSION & EMPATY SHOWN BY THE STAFF AT THIS PUB!! I had...just been to my brothers funeral & we had decided to go to this pub for a couple of drinks after the service. First of all when I entered the pub I approached the bar to 2 extremely rude members of staff who told me very bluntly that there wouldn’t be space for me to sit with my mother & that I’d have to sit outside (no other explanation of any rules or procedures they had in place) They then proceeded to turn their back on me while I tried to order a drink .... I politely asked for the drink I wanted while the member of staff had her back turned to me. When a few of the group where leaving they went to hug my mother, baring in mind she’s just lost her son. A member a staff then approached my mother & very rudely told her NOT TO DO THAT!! & that she was to SIT DOWN!! My mother then told the member of staff that she’d just lost her son & then was shouted at & told that they’d also lost someone recently too & that didn’t matter in this situation!! I totally understand that there are certain rules that have to be adhered to but there is a certain way of approaching things, taking into consideration that everyone in the group of people that were there had just lost a loved one & at least showing some kind of decent human respect, compassion & empathy .... THE MEMBERS OF STAFF THAT WERE INVOLVED IN THIS INCIDENT SHOULD BE UTTERLY ASHAMED WITH THEMSELVES FOR SHOWING OTHER HUMAN BEINGS SO LITTLE COMPASSION. THIS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD TODAY. FEAR & CONTROL COMES BEFORE ANY KIND OF HUMAN DECENCY.More

We attended the Tally Ho Inn this evening and everything was amazing as it always has been. We had great service and the food was lovely. I had a hunters chicken and it was delicious as was the rest of the party’s food. Although it...was the last night of eat out to help out and it was a bank holiday, despite it being extremely busy, the service and food was brilliant and they handled the busy period very well. We will definitely be visiting again. Best pub I’ve been to in a long time!!!More
