“2 steaks £20 on Thursdays ! Excellent! ”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

Called in this evening at nearly 9pm after dropping passengers in nearby village, and just in time for food. Two steaks twenty quid was excellent! Didn't need steak knives, tender as anything. Will be returning! Staff/owners lovely friendly people. Great pub. Locals say Sunday lunch is excellent so that will be our next visit I expect!

We have taken 6 months to try out the pub under new owners as the last time we went under previous people it was so awful, but what a transformation clean, warm, fantastic food, friendly and welcoming staff what more could you want from your local. Congratulations to Steve and his team and we look forward to coming back soon.

Stayed for one night in October with my wife, daughter and dog. Very spacious room in building directly behind the pub. The pub itself is very nice, good food and ale, but what really made the stay was the welcoming staff. Excellent breakfast topped off an enjoyable visit. There is a lovely local walk by the river Steve told me about so, if with a dog, recommended.

After a series of 'so-so ' pub food experiences, I wasn't expecting too much. However..!! Wow. Best gourmet burger I've ever had, gorgeous starter, and the perfect sponge-based home made cheesecake, none of the pre-packed over sugared biscuit stuff. Really really good, and friendly service too. The only oddity? A Christmas song, surrounded by Bob Marley. See you again soon...

Lovely little pub across the road from the pub, no longer part of the Tarka Rail Trail but good staff and good beer. We were wlecomed by a very polite landlady and also a lovely barmaid. Apparently they normally do their own pork scratchings but not available when we visited, hopefully we will be back to try these! We didn't eat here but the food looked good

The new owners have really turned this pub around. We have been here a couple of times when we stay in north devon. Food is brilliant, I had they steak and it was delicious, staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Some of my weddings guest stayed here and loved it.
They welcome family's and well behaved dogs. Will definitely return next time were in north devon.
