“Beautiful Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

Had a light lunch here last week, decided on the seafood sharing platter and it was a great choice. There was plenty of seafood for the 2 of us and the quality was fabulous. It was beautifully presented and washed down with a pint of local Exmoor Gold ale which complimented it perfectly. The staff were very friendly and perfectly attentive even though the pub was full, the price was fair for the quality, including the cheeky side order of chips which went down a treat! Can't recommend this meal enough. Hope to return soon for an overnight stay as one meal was not enough.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

The food is excellent, good choice and they use local produce as much as possble the only problem was they ran out of Eton Mess and we were not there long enough for it to be back on the menu before we left!

“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

Came here without booking and had one of the last tables. The welcome was friendly and sincere.. The food was really superb - Fowey mussels in a cider and cream sauce with spring onions and bacon - very good, and cod and chips. Both followed by one of the best sweets e have had in a long time - proper Eton Mess and a delightful rice pudding with vanilla. it. Good value and well worth Enjoyed so much we are returning for another meal tonight - having booked this time!
Well worth the visit! Well done.

Great location in town and good posh pub food - well worth a visit if you like cosy indoor venues. Fish and chips were sublime!

“Platter and sound advice!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

We decided to call,in at the isinglass Sun in spec for a glass of wine. The menu was so inviting that we stayed and had a fish platter to share. The very welcoming bar tender offered advice on a dry white wine which was excellent and also cheaper than the wine we first asked about. unusual to be advised to purchase a cheaper option. The food was exquisite, the service warm, friendly and efficient. Already planning our next visit with friends to experience more. Well worth the 40 minute drive from our home. Thank you!
