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 had a super lunch. This restaurant is in The OXenham Arms Hotel. They have bar meals and a restaurant menu. Excellent. Its all fresh and home made, there were 6 of us and we loved it. Ask for a tour of the building or...just wonder around it is unique and gorgeous.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
Amazing atmospheric restaurant and wonderful food on offer here! The Porterhouse steaks were superb and the delightful red to accompany them was excellent. Simon and Lynne are running an fantastic restaurant here together with their Head Chef. Can't air to return and sample some more...amazing food!More
Booked a table for 6 to meet up with my daughters who were travelling from Bristol and us from Cornwall.

I had the pie which was excellent.
Would highly recommend this...location for lunch. Not a huge menu, but the standard was first classMore
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!
Standing stones in the restaurant...this place rocks. The menu is great, went with the venison, damn it was melt in your mouth tender. Breakfast was another delight. The bar is well stocked ...not that I got passed begin, go to Dartmoor Jail, local ale I...enjoyed it too much. a fantastic experience food, drink, stay, the decor, age and staff all make this a place to visit. Cannot fault it.More
