Had a meal here on our recent visit to Sidford, this is a very friendly, no nonsense, village pub with a good menu and very good food. The young waitress who served us was a delight and very helpful, would not hesitate to recommend.

Waitress was rather indifferent but food was good and served quickly. The menu was varied with a good choice. My partner recommends the Steak and Ale Pie.
