We recently had dinner at Whiddons and really enjoyed it. The food was well cooked and tasty and the service friendly and helpful. Reasonably priced and the set price included bread, tea or coffee and mints. Well worth a visit.

My family and I travelled here to see what the cuisine was like in the village and this was absolutely on the money. The premises are quaint and there are only a few select seats available, but once you're in, you're in for a treat. The chef/owner had only been cooking professionally since finishing his last job and I have... More

We stopped here for afternoon tea on a blustery day. It was a perfect choice - the cakes were all homemade and delicious, the owner was a delight, and the ambience was charming and authentic without being saccharine. We would come back across the pond just for tea at Whiddons.

My wife and I stopped in after a long hike. Homemade cakes were excellent and so was the conversation with the owner!

The food was beautifully cooked and very tasty. The Bistro was generally quiet during our two visits, a very pleasant atmosphere & room. The service was excellent. The owner was charming.

We booked in to Whiddons for dinner at 7.30 last night and were surprised to be the only guests for the evening. We were made very welcome and had the undivided attention from Andrea for the evening. The food was all locally sourced and homemade by her husband. Being foodies, we recognised the care that had gone into the meal,... More

We had a family celebration dinner at this restaurant and were very impressed. All our meals were delicious, the service was friendly and efficient with a lovely atmosphere. We brought our own wine. The deserts and coffee were lovely too. A very happy evening - Thank you and we would all highly recommend.

Great place to go to for afternoon tea after a walk in Chagford. Friendly service and delicious cakes. The lemon drizzle cake was out of this world.

We were last at Whiddons 2 years ago and it was very quiet. It now has new owners. We received a very warm welcome and it was busy. A small but perfectly formed menu focusing on sourcing 'local'. Thoroughly enjoyed our two courses and look forward to coming back on our next visit. Wishing them every success 😊
