The food was basic but very reasonably priced. The beer was a bit tired and in terms of ales was the ubiquitous Doom Bar or Wadworths 6X.

Visited whilst camping in Winkleigh and didn't want to cook! Nice traditional pub with an area set aside for eating. Menu was limited but had more than enough choice to satisfy - Fish & Chips, Chilli & Rice, Burgers etc.

A special pub, being the tap for the nearby Winkleigh Cider Company at Western Barn, selling Sam's cider on draught. Changes in management over the last few years make recommendations a bit problematical, but well worth visiting anyway. Our last visit in September 2016 was...More
