“Absolutely appalling”

Live and Let Live Inn
Ranked #80 of 131 Restaurants in Newton Abbot
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Quite possibly the worst meal I've ever been served. Steak and ale pie, reheated in a microwave resulting in pastry with a texture like softened playdough and containing over-salted meat. Over-cooked vegetables and far too much synthetic gravy which was totally at odds with the grey contents of the pie.

My wife's meal was no better. Over-cooked, chewy cod in a thick, 'heavy-going' batter' served with chips which were barely passable. The accompanying 'tartare sauce' was of the commercial variety which was devoid of any gherkins and capers.

It's utterly beyond me how a pub serving food this bad manages to survive.

Dreadful.

The Live & Let Live is lovely pub restaurant set in a small village. Four us had a meal here last night, the service and food was superb, you couldn't fault it. It was the second time I had visited and was not let down, it is now certainly my place of choice when choosing where to go for a meal out.

we went to this quaint pub for an evening meal with best friends. huge portions [for those with a smaller appetite dont have a starter as well as they were a meal in themselves and you will have no room for pudding :) ] , well cooked,tasty,traditional food , good choices,friendly staff , great night all round . i cant believe this little gem of a pub was so quiet for a friday night , we will definitely be back .cant fill in all the details about the outdoor seating etc as it was dark :)

I t was my sons 10th birthday, so we decided to have it at the Live and Let Inn
as soon as we got through the door the bar staff was there to great us and show us to our table. A nice log fire burning away, a few dogs next to the fire
the music was just wright (not to loud), we ordered our food and drinks, and it was nice to see that they do a very good kids range of food from chips to salmon etc etc, the staff joined in with us singing happy birthday, and they gave the kids free drinks. I would reckomend this Inn for familys, 100%
