“What a find!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Just spent an absolutely super weekend here. One of the nicest meals I have ever enjoyed anywhere. Very comfortable spacious room and no UHT milk in sight. ( My sort of place). Lovely touches; home baked biscuits; thermos of fresh milk. Will definitely visit again. Thanks so much.

“Atmosphere and delicious food.”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

The Lazy Toad is quite close to Exeter but travel along the country lanes and you are in the country. Peace and quiet. Today was our first visit and we had pre booked for Mothers Day lunch. We were greeted like old friends and shown to our table. The menu is very interesting and full of temptation. We opted for the Devon Ruby Sunday roast. The beef was perfect. Beautifully pink and melt in the mouth. Vegetables were just right and the Yorkshire puddings were the best I've had. I was able to have a small portion which was perfect. There were some wonderful desserts. I couldn't manage more than ice cream but it was wonderful ice cream served with a perfect crisp biscuit. Excellent wine choice. The sofa and rocking chair by the log fire looked so tempting. The large toad on the bar is FAB. There is a delightful courtyard. I honestly cannot think of anything that would have made our first visit to The Lazy Toad any more enjoyable. Can't wait to return.

“a bit disappointed”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

was expecting more from the reviews this place has, staff friendly, menu ok but maybe limited,ordered food, 2 pies came out without any veg, forgot to bring cheese board to us, so we had to ask, overall not great but not bad but certainly seems to be overrated, quite pricey for what we had

“Lovely spot for sunday Lunch”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We booked for Sunday lunch. Service was lovely as was the venue, astmosphere and surroundings (looking forward to going back in the summer and combining lunch with a sunny walk). Food was not as amazing as I had hoped but still very nice and very reasonably priced. We will certainly be going back.
