My previous take away review was poor. These two times that we have visited were a complete contrast. We had a nice piece of fish and more than enough chips and proper 'mushy' peas. Everything was lovely and hot and quickly served . Pot of...More
...for 18 hungry teenagers and 5 adults!
Before the young people embarked on their Gold D of E expeditions the nest morning which would take them 4 days top complete, camping semi wild and catering for themselves with only what they could carry.
After a rather stressful walk around Tavistock to try and find somewhere to eat that would have space for my rather large double buggy, whilst my 5 month old was screaming, we arrived at The Tavi Friar not holding out much hope. We were so...More

Food very disappointing, it’s well worth...More
