Beautifully presented pub, super-friendly staff, good selection of food cooked to a high standard. Plenty of drinks on offer. Very little to fault! Phil and Hannah in particular are worth a mention for their hospitality!

Jacobs Plough offers some of the best, innovative and creative dishes, using Aubrey Allen meats, Jimmy Butlers Pork and fish fish from Brixham on a daily basis. With an extensive wine list, fantastic spirit selection and guest ales, there is nothing not to tempt everyone though the doors. With a sunny courtyard that is prefect for alfresco sipping.
