My friend took me for lunch on my birthday, we had ham egg and chips. We did sit in the bar area as there was another function, but we really enjoyed our lunch and didn't have to wait long.

The restaurant, bar and rooms at the Weary Ploughman at Churston has been extensively refurbished to a very high standard during the last two years to provide somewhere to eat, meet or stay that is very welcoming and comfortable, but not in any way pretentious. Our menu is varied and freshly cooked using, whenever possible, produce sourced locally.
