“A lovely warm welcome and a typical local pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

I had to write this as I feel that "devondumpling" is totally out of order. The landlady you are being so critical off is the host of our local pub and I feel very aggrieved about the libelous personal comments you have made about the aforementioned lady. Yes the pub is dated but you cannot fault the warm welcome and the wonderful home cooking you get at the Highweek. How many pubs do you know that give you free snacks at half time during rugby matches? And I'm not talking chips here!! Sorry "devondumpling" you have over stepped the mark here and become very personal. Your critique is not worthy of trip advisor.

“Fantastic home cooked food in this tucked away pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

Well on first entering I was a little dubious as the pub itself is a very tired 1960,s build which lacks any interior design or character. However not being one to be put off by exteriors or decor decided to go for the Sunday roast. Well I was not disappointed! Five stars for the service and the food. The proprietor and cook even came out personally to check we were happy with our meal. Beautifully cooked roast beef cut in thick slices and very tasty in home made gravy, crispy and delicious roast potatoes, and a server of steaming hot veg all very tasty and colourful. They serve from 12-4pm every Sunday and for £5.95 for adults beats any local carvery I know and taste wise beats them all hands down. I think kids were £3.95 so you can feed the family of four for less than £20 and drinks were reasonable too. A good choice of desserts were offered chocolate fudge cake, banoffee tart, sticky toffee pudding, ice creams etc which I declined as too full up from the large meal! The only criticisms I have are with the tired dining room which could be made lovely but if it means putting the prices up then please stay the same! Hopefully more locals will start to go so more money can be spent on it in the future so the pub can match up to the great food and service. All in all a great meal after a Sunday walk, well done.

“Such amazing value and an excellent roast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

What amazing value the Sunday roast is and with plenty of meat, lovely roast potatoes and six vegetables there were no complaints from us. But the place itself is tired and the room at the back where we ate is definitely nothing special. Music blasted from the bar too which wasn't great. But we will return!

“Nice pub, good food & great value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

I've been here a few times in the last year and always find it to be very good food and so worth a stop in when passing. Look forward to trying their Sunday roast next time.
