While staying at Devon cliffs we drove past this restaurant a few times and thought how nice it looked and decided to stop there one afternoon for a drink and also to check out the food prices as we were planning to eat there one evening. Inside is very small and set for people eating so we decided to go outside with our drinks, as it was also raining we had to sit on a bench that's undercover. The landlord was already sat outside with his mates, sitting on the middle bench leaving us to sit on the bench next to it. While enjoying our drinks the landlord and his friends were smoking a lot which we didn't find very nice due to the large amount of smoke wafting over to us. In our party we had a 5 year old child sitting with us and a pregnant lady. We put up with the smoking and nothing was said about it. Upon leaving and having decided that we would come back for a meal there that evening, my brother stood round the corner from the men waiting for his wife and child to come back from the toilet. While waiting he heard the landlord complaining loudly about us and how if we didn't like them smoking we should of sat somewhere else.. We had no where to sit but next to them due to the rain, and we did not say anything to him or his friends.
I would suggest the landlord thinks about his attitude towards paying customers and from looking through some of the other messages on here it is clear that we are not the only people to have found him to be highly unpleasant. Its a shame as it does look like a very nice place to stop for a drink or bite to eat, however if the boorish oaf who runs this place is not careful people will not want to visit his establishment.
In summary a lovely looking place ruined my a charmless man with a chip the size of Luxembourg on his shoulder. Safe to say we didn't return for that meal.
