A few people saying this pub serves great food so we decided to have a go. Disappointing to say the least. We had grilled chicken and chips, cheese burger with bacon and chips and steak and kidney pie with chips. It was nothing to rave about, the pie was ok but the veg came out quite poorly prepared. The broccoli... More

Met up with some friends at Paignton for lunch, don't know the area but was recommended the Devon Dumpling. Very busy, was told the wait for food could be an hour, not in any hurry, the food arrived in 40 minutes. Huge jacket potatoes and sandwiches with side salad. Very good value for money, only one bar person but did... More

Well where to start! Booked for a friend's 40th birthday I took a cake banner balloons and confetti down the day before and asked for the cake to come out after the meal. So we waited an hour and 20 minutes for food with no one coming and explaining to us what was going on. Eventually came out with a... More

Well the whole dish was disgusting. The Hake was edible but the whole combination didn't go. The squid was very tough and greasy just tasted of fat.... More

As a very picky couple - we were very impressed! Two adults, a five and a two year old loved the cottage. We were very impressed with cream teas upon arrival with complimentary wine! The cottage is quaint, cosy and well stacked with quality kitchenware. It was an ideal base for our journeys during the day and really central to... More

This is our local pub and is within a stones throw. We have only eaten here once in the 2 years we have lived here and we're disappointed with the food. Nothing specific, just disappointed. HOWEVER, there us always a good atmosphere and it is generally quite busy and a good community pub.
