“Really Lovely Meal”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Five of us had a great meal at the Toad this Saturday. Food was genuinely delicious for us all.
Wines were also excellent - Merlot like velvet and a tasty little Viognier. Thank you very much !

“What you dream of!!!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

This is well worth a visit. Even the car park is welcoming and calming. Lovely little courtyard for sitting outside then inside Clive and all the staff are wonderful, nothing pretentious, they treat you like friends. The food is excellent. We're looking forward to our next visit.

“Fabulous! ”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

We went to the lazy toad for Sunday lunch for my fathers birthday. We've been many times before and can not rate highly enough. The food is amazing and really can't be faulted, ( including the biggest Yorkshire pudding I've ever seen) the service is brilliant ( clive is lovely and love it that he asks for your name when you go in and remembers it too!!) and the overall experience I think you would struggle to find anywhere better. We're looking forward to our next visit!!!

“A perfect Mother's Day lunch”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

We visited as a family and received a very warm welcome. The food was excellent, surpassing our expectations. The children's menu was also very good, with more choice than the norm. It is a beautiful rural setting and one of our favourites. Can't wait to go back!

“just just SO good”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

A second visit to what has to be one of the nicest most civilized pubs. Clive and his courteous friendly team serve everything with such aplomb and the food.. OMG ... Mo's Ruby Beef Steak & Kidney pie was to quote the late Mr Winner: 'Epic' , and the exquisite trio of citrus based deserts a perfect foil to the richness of the main course. We had a day trip to Exeter from London for family reasons- but it was worth the trip just for our lunch @ the Lazy Toad
