Thursday 19th January and we visited here twice. Firstly, having checked into our accommodation for the evening, staying the night at Findon Motel, we went out on a bit of a reconnaissnce of the area and what Findon had to offer and popped in here for a drink.
On entering we were surprised and the size of the place, it was big, bright, in places there were no ceilings just open to the rafters, understand it was supposed to have a skiing chalet design. There were a number of smaller areas/alcoves to sit and have a drink and eat. We found a place beside the open fire place, really cosy on this very cold winter's evening. The place was nicely decorated with some different styles of furnishings.
We ordered our 2 drinks, which came to £ 7.60, slightly cheaper than one of the pubs down the road, still thought it expensive, our local in Seaton, Devon, only £6.10.
We returned later in the evening for dinner and sat by the fire where we sat earlier. We ordered our food Sausages, mash and gravy £10.95 and Beef Bourguignon, which was also served with mash, from the specials menu, £12.95.
When our food was served it was piping hot, very well presented and garnished with freshly cooked vegetables, but most importantly very tasty.
On both occasions we were served by the same cheerful young guy, who was very attentive, visiting our table ensuring we were ok and providing drinks table service.
Having walked from our accommodation, the Findon Motel, it took about 10 minutes, would recommend taking a torch, there is no street lighting and there is little or no pavement. Our walk took us through the village however, If driving the pub can be reached just off the A 24, there is lots of car parking.
We had a very pleasant evening here.
