My particular favourites were the Ribeye steak (perfectly 'blue' with a lovely sear on the outside and the Chicken & Prawn Laska with noodles fragrant with the aroma of lemongrass. Delicious!

My wife and I spent a pleasant week in South Zeal and had a few evening meals at the Monastery Restaurant. The hotel has a fascinating history which is matched by its atmosphere and ambiance. The staff are friendly and extremely welcoming. You must however...be prepared for some banter and challenging conversation with the manager who is quite the pedant but an excellent host. The Devon Rib-Eye was as good a steak as we have ever eaten, perfectly cooked (rare), tender and juicy. On one evening I had the chicken and Prawn Laska which was equally superb. We thoroughly recommend the Oxenham Arms.More

We found this hotel-restaurant by chance because we were on that part of the A30 at lunchtime. What a treat! The food we had was outstanding. I had salmon atop crushed Cornish potato atop cabbage with lemon-butter sauce - might sound odd but it was...fantastic, and I am attempting to replicate this at home. Service also very good and friendly. The building is very old and a former monastery - worth asking for the write-up of the history. We will certainly be visiting again next time we are schlepping down the A30.More

We dined here with my elderly in-laws on our latest 'gardening' visit to Devon. My starter of soup was excellent; the fish & chips main was very tasty, as was my desert of summer pudding. Four real ales to choose from plus friendly service, so...all in all a very pleasurable evening - especially as we were being treated to the meal.More

I have visited a few times from Spreyton, but this was my first visit to the pub garden. Wonderful views of Dartmoor, large garden with a lovely glass of wine. Well worth a visit, the hotel/pub should advertise the lovely garden!
