We returned here after enjoying a couple of lovely meals here back in September and we were not disappointed. Good food, good service and we were made welcome along with our dog.

Booked for 6 on New Year's Day for 1.45. I never get my hopes up eating at pubs as I'm rarely impressed. However, the staff at Peter Tavey were spot on, very professional, polite and engaging. The food was really good and one of the best eating pubs I've visited on Dartmoor. The proof is in the vegetables, cooked perfectly,... More

Had a gorgeous afternoon with my father here, I had the roast beef and was pleasantly surprised. Everything I expected and more, such a quaint and dinky little cottage-like establishment that gives off such energy an lively-ness when at its busiest. would definitely visit again, expect traditional yet hearty meals with finesse and care.

We booked as my good friend and next door neighbour has her birthday on New years day and we try not to let it get over looked. Gorgeous meal, good service from lovely friendly staff and a surprise ice cream dessert with candle and everyone joining in with happy birthday to you sealed a fantastic meal. Thank you.

Rang at short notice for table for 6. Said they were full but we're welcome to wait for a table. Had a drink in the bar and waited 10 mins for a table. Menu was varied with numerous vegetarian options. Food was fantastic with a great selection of potatoes and fresh vegetables. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Well done... More

We attended as a group of six, one of whom has quite a tedious diet(no veg oil, dairy, you know the sort) and the staff were extremely helpful and flexible about this from the word go. The dining room is quite cosy, but with plenty of space. The menu is quite varied, with a good choice and mixture of winter... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely lunch with our friends Mike and Sophie (locals). Charming old tavern, kept up handsomely with a cozy warm atmosphere run by a friendly and professional staff. I ordered a sea bass as I recall and it was cooked to perfection. Tender and delicious. Everyone seemed quite pleased with all the orders finishing it off with a... More
