Well worth a visit. It's a narrow road to get to the Peter Tavey, past some resting farm dogs. Taxi from Tavistock was only £6, so no big decision really. The food was first class and tasty. Pies with bottoms!! Very welcoming staff. Would go...More

Had a wonderful meal here. My other half loved the steak and Stilton pie. I had an amazing spiced butternut squash soup which was so filling I shouldn’t have ordered a main. The staff were friendly. Would thoroughly recommend this pub.

I reviewed the Peter Tavy Inn a few years ago giving it a ‘very good’ rating, but since becoming a regular visitor and experiencing consistently excellent service and food I really feel I must upgrade its status to ‘excellent’. We were here, without booking, for...More
