“Not recommended”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

It was apparently a small country pub with a very high reputation. It was definitely a small pub but with incompetent staff who didn't know how to pour drinks or even which wines they had behind the bar, very mediocre food from a menu with a large number of items unavailable and poor service at the table I cannot see where the high reputation came from. For example my brother had a steak which was adequately cooked but served with just a dozen chips on the plate and nothing else. The prices were high, the food mediocre and the service poor. We will not be returning.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

Stopped off here en route from Cornwall to Devon - found on the Trip advisor App whilst heading up the A30 and looking for Sunday Lunch. Found a friendly welcome, excellent service and great food. Was surprised how quite it was - which maty have help with the huge portions ! Excellent wine list and lovely outdoor seating area. Hope more people discover it as fear for its future if it is so quite for a Sunday lunch in peak season.

“A treat...”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

A treat of a pub and deserves the term gastro it their title and marketing, that to be frank so few do. Excellent service, food and wine. This may very well become my new local for dining out.

“Excellent meal and service”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We called in at the Harris Arms on the way down to Cornwall from Bristol as we wanted a convenient watering hole and thoroughly dislike motorway fare. We ate in the restaurant section over-looking a lovely view. We chose from the a la carte menu and the daily specials and every course was delicious. I had twice cooked cheese souffle followed by hake in a tasty sauce and my husband had whitebait followed by rabbit and prune casserole - all faultless. The service was courteous and friendly, the decor and atmosphere very good and the bill very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely pub.
