“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

Dropped in when passing, having walked the dogs on Eggardon Hill, for a quick drink. We were impressed by the atmosphere and welcome and very nearly stayed to eat; vowed to come back soon. That we did, for Sunday lunch a couple of weeks ago, and we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, we were welcomed as though we were regulars and the menu was varied and interesting. It was then only a short drive to Eggardon Hill to walk it all off with the dogs! We'll be back, with friends in tow.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

What a lovely little pub! A real country gem...the food was incredible. Great atmosphere, great food and great service. The added bonus was the reasonable prices - my boyfriend still stands by it being the best fish and chips he's ever had. If you are nearby - go and have a meal, you won't regret it (I do recommend you book in advance if possible)!

Reviewed 29 September 2013

Second visit to the Spyway Inn.Just as enjoyable as the first time. very friendly and helpful staff. Food was very good and plenty to choose from without being over the top, lovely Baileys creme brulee puddy. Views outside are lovely. There is a kids area as well..
