Wonderful variety of food at reasonable prices. Great atmosphere, and helpful staff. Wise to book ahead for eating at lunch time on Sundays. Have been there on several occasions, and never been disappointed.

Not far from Minadab B&B, so gave it a try. Warm welcome, nothing to much trouble. Food was excellent and carvery fresh and appetising. Found the young members of staff attentive and polite. Wish we had this Inn closer to us, strongly recommend.

Found this little gem on a damp and soggy walk from Dawlish Warren. Had a couple of pints and came back the following day for dinner. Excellent pub grub. I can highly recommend this pub with beautiful views.
