Description: Very hospitable and supported local pub that does good basic pub food and operates the village takeaway. Explained on it's own website and elsewhere. We came to this lovely village in search of bespoke furniture and stumbled upon this very convivial pub. We recommend it as a Tripadvisor listing.

“Proper local Devon pub with good quality well cooked food.”
Reviewed 31 March 2013 via mobile

Went on Friday for a drink, friends had food. Great steak and kidney pie, home made from scratch. Also mushrooms in garlic sauce as starter but eaten as main, man size portions! Also nice atmosphere, and refreshing change from corporate/group pubs. Definitely worth a visit!!

“Great food, great company”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

We are relatively new to the area and have been warmly welcome by Helen, the Landlady, and regulars alike.
Sunday roasts are the best I have had from a pub - just like home cooking and great value. We always treat ourselves to at least one Sunday lunch per month and more when friends are visiting! (Just remember to book)
The pub has a great atmosphere, with many extras throughout the year - well attended quiz nights (out of season), charity events, meal specials and a good value takeaway service (with free local delivery).
Kids and dogs are welcome - as long as they are well behaved and kept on a lead (only the dogs, of course!). Our kids love going there - as long as they get to choose what they eat (my daughter is particularly keen on the (home cooked) Ham, egg and chips!)

“Family meal”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

We have been to the Loddiswell before. It's good food & very friendly. They do takeaways aswell as bar meals, with good deals on food on certain nights. They also do over 60's meals which are really good value. More local people should us it. Use it or loose it.

“Good 'pub grub' in village pub”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Always seem to have various deals on, advertised on boards on the roadside, especially out of season. Half price 'meat' day is a particular favourite as well as '2 for 1' roasts.
As we drove past last Saturday we noticed the board this time advertising free meals for children, so rang to book a table for 7.45pm that night, confirming the offer applied to one free child’s main meal per adult meal.
A cosy village pub where we have eaten many times and the food is always pretty good. Staff are friendly, if a bit frantic when trying to get meals out when busy.
The chicken curry was deemed as excellent and ‘too much to eat’. I had a medium rib-eye steak (£13.95) which came out rather more well done than medium. A16oz rump steak (£14.95) was complimented on, all the choices in our party of seven were enjoyed with no complaints.
Deserts were around £4.25 - a choice of about 5 - including banana split, various Salcombe ice creams, profiteroles (although had run out when we tried to order them), fresh raspberries and sticky toffee pudding.
Tables can be reserved and dining is either in the bar area or up a few stairs on a mezzanine level.
Service is a bit ad hoc and we waited 45mins to be served, but were warned when we booked that it would be busy.
When we came to pay, we were charged for the child’s meal, being directed to a notice that said the offer only applied between 5-7pm. No mention of this on the sign outside nor were we advised on booking, but could have been a problem if eating there was conditional on getting the offer.
When pointed out to the waitress, she apologised for the incomplete advice on the phone and for having to wait to be served.

Overall, a good meal enjoyed by our party, although slightly dampened not getting the offer we were expecting.
