Visited with a friend for a quiet meal to have a catch up. Brilliant country pub! Lovely staff! Great food! The famous homemade Steak & Stilton pie was as usual on point! Delicious homemade garlic bread! Mississippi Mud Pie for the both of us for dessert! Certainly be visiting again.... as always!

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

Had lunch and when I arose from the table I found that the seat of my trousers was quite wet.. Instead of touring Dartmoor I had to return home to change trousers and underwear. I was not pleased. If you decide to dine at this Inn advise checking that the seat is dry in case some pensioner has been taken... More

The Peter Tavy Inn was all we were hoping for and more. We arrived on a dark, cold November evening and were warmly greeted. The pub inside is cosy and we were seated near the fire. There was a great menu and the food was delicious, with generous portions. We were hoping for local food and drink and were impressed... More

This is an excellent pub, good food, excellent beer, open all day, have been here on many occasions at different times of the year, parking can be a problem but as we spend the majority of our time sat on the benches by the car park, it seems that a number of spaces are taken up by walkers, who do...

Just excellent. Always good food, huge portions. Great place to relax and chill. Staff are lovely. Set in beautiful countryside on the edge of Dartmoor with a stunning church adjacent which is well worth a visit. Local Methodist Church is surprisingly attractive too.

We came for a mid-week evening meal and couldn't have been happier. The venison casserole with Stilton dumplings was absolutely mouthwatering and the chicken and ham pie was equally delicious. Vegetarian curry was slightly 'thin' and a little lacking in flavour, but the accompaniments were very good. Service was prompt and very efficiently do the whole evening was a great... More

Lovely pub, nice looking menu, Sunday roast beef ordered and seated by the fire. Excellent start, all down hill after. Roast beef chewy for all 4 adults and tough. The horseradish offered smallest portion possible, asked for more was gruffly brought more. Asked for a Yorkshire pud for the pork was told couldn't have even if we paid more, veg... More
