Great food, plenty of it and not expensive. Food was freshly prepared so was worth the little waiting time we experienced. We look forward to going again next time we are in Devon

Would recommend booking a table here as we attempted 3 times before we were successful in getting in as they were always fully booked but was well worth the wait. Menu was varied and had plenty to choose from, food was delicious and portion sizes were good. Would recommend the fudge brownie with cherry and amaretto sauce , i'm still dreaming about it a week later . Reasonable priced and service was friendly and attentive. Would definitely go back if I'm ever in the area again

The service is friendly and speedy, and the place was busy when we arrived for our 2.15 reservation, but cleared out not long after our arrival.
The food looked good, and everything was plated beautifully.
Its not getting a full 5 stars from me on account of the food though ...
Crispy Pork shanks ... crackling was not as crispy as it should have been. Parts of the crackling had no crackle whatsoever :(
Amaretti Icecream, biscuits and sauce ... beautifully presented, and each component along was lovely, but all three together were just too much amaretti and unbalanced - would be a better dish with a good vanilla ice cream
