We met early evening at this traditional village pub and as we had a long journey we ordered dinner well before restaurant serving time. One starter of carrot and coriander soup arrived reasonable quickly but we had to go back and ask for the other two. This second batch of soup was so heavily peppered that it was inedible but did not attract comment when we reported this. The (6) main courses were a long time coming and again we had to query the delay. Eventually they arrived, the regular Steak & Kidney pie was great. The Specials Steak & Stilton pie was very disappointing both in size and taste and not good value The three Lyme Bay Plaice served untrimmed and without garnish looked revolting and turned my stomach and I was eating the Steak & Stilton pie and hardened fish eater. I had to discreetly trim the fish before my wife would even look at it.
The dishes from the standard menu were OK but the specials were nothing special and poor value. The service was slow and indifferent.
Even worse is that we selected this venue from tripadvisor and have to add that it is not up to the reviews on our visit. We will probably never be in this part of Devon again but felt so disappointed that I had to write this poor review.
