We stopped for a break on a way to Exeter, service customer orientated as I had an odd request for the type of my drink😊 in an English Pub: some tea on Friday night! My boyfriend enjoyed his Tarka which is a type of lager. Affordable & tasteful food.

Food, service, presentation and staff were excellent and could not be faulted. They kindly squeezed us in at the last moment, despite the Xmas rush.

We dropped into the Holt in Honiton on the way down to Sidmouth and were so pleased to find this smashing pub/restaurant. The pub is nicely decorated and there was a blazing fire going - always a treat in an English wintertime. The kitchen was on show at the end of the room and looked clean and efficient and the...

A great meal as always. Celebrating a birthday and excellent food and service. Menu is always varied and something new every month or so. Tapas is top notch too!

A pub and restaurant near the centre of Honiton that serves the best beer for miles (Otter beers of course) and excellent menu. The beer is great. The food is excellent and varied. The portions are well proportioned but leave room for one of their excellent desserts. The wines are well chosen and all reasonably priced. The service is excellent.... More

Very tasty tapas We hadn't booked and the restaurant was full so we ate on the bar. The barmaid wasn't very attentive and difficult to extract information from. We did however manage to order and the food was delicious. Would like to try booking a table if I return

As usual, we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The tapas, pigs cheek and celeriac soup were delicious starters. Venison steak, pork belly and bream were superb. The desserts were bread and butter pudding and sticky toffee pudding and concluded a memorable meal. The food was accompanied by the local brew, Otter Head, and a Chilean Cab Savage Merlot. The staff... More

This is not a posh restaurant but a very comfortable one with tables a good distance apart. The food is just out of this world, my Venison was cooked to perfection & as ALL meals are cooked when ordered ( yes you have to wait ) but the wait is well worth it. If you are looking for a large... More
