Very family friendly- treated the children like VIPs. Very cozy, clean and bright. Immaculate interior and wonderful food. We have roast lamb and plenty of it, the children's meals were very generous portions. The dessert was best home made fayre we have ever had in a pub. Would definitely go back.

Went there with the family last week and had a fantastic meal. Two of our group were small toddlers and they asked if we would like the children's food first as it would be cooked before the adults. Never been offered this before so brownie points for that alone. We all had great food and would definitely go back again.... More

This place is awesome, 8 of our family met tonight and were welcomed like regulars, the ambiance is homely, the food is home cooked and delicious, but the people looking after us made the evening, I have never felt so welcome, we were a big party with two under 3's, a dog and the kitchen sink! Thank you so much... More

We always visit here when holidaying in Devon. My husband loves the Old Rosie cider and thankfully its still available (please don't take it away). The staff are friendly and you get a really nice pub lunch here. My only comment this time around was the sticky toffee pudding could have been warmer, and more moist. (We've had better elsewhere).... More

Wanted to check this little pub out as its near where I live and always looks good as I pass. Firstly , the pub is dog friendly and in this case they mean friendly, dogs are not just endured but welcomed and our little fellow got a couple of biscuits which he always appreciates.

We went for dinner here with my family for a 40th Birthday; there were 19 of us in total. The beer was good and wine was good value for money. They had also set out a nice area for the 19 of us to eat. Unfortunately the kitchen did not seem to be able to cope with such a large... More

Lovely Pub/hotel they do fairly basic food but do offer a wide range including a number of vegetarian options and all at a reasonable price. They had a nice selection of real ales both on draught and in bottles. The owners were very welcoming and the barman very pleasant.
