We turned up just after the initial rush and were very lucky to get a table as it was very busy. Very nice, friendly and helpful staff. Great atmosphere in a very cozy country pub. We had roast beef, it came with three slices, so plenty there, Yorkshire pudding and plenty of gravy, separate dishes for the roast spuds and... More

We have been using The Linny for years because the food is excellent as is the service. It has never changed over the years and is really the only restaurant in this area that you know will always be great. We have never had a bad meal there.

We enjoyed a New Year's Eve meal with the family and the food was really tasty. We did arrive at the busiest time and was prepared for a wait as the food never seems to disappoint Our favourite dishes are the turkey curry and the mushroom strudel and our children enjoy the roast options As we have said in previous...

My wife and I booked to eat in this restaurant for my Birthday. We both wanted a really good Steak meal and we wern't dissapointed. Although the Pub/Restaurant was quite busy we were very well looked after and served an excellant and memorable meal that we will be returning to enjoy again.

Three of us had lunch here on Sunday, as usual the food and service were very good. This beautiful old pub in the village of Coffinswell, Devon is very popular with the locals so you will need to book a table. Thoroughly recommended.

Lovely olde world pub in the middle of no where. Had cod mornay which was OK but could have had longer in the microwave. All dishes served with standard veg so no matching to the main part of the dish.

Lovely cosy country food pub. Food was good, although the meat with one meal was cold. This was replaced with extra potatoes and veg. Service very friendly although a little slow considering only a few people were dining. Not as good as previous visits so wouldn't say this was the norm.

A jewel in the countryside, we have been again and again and it's always consistently good. Why are quality eating places like this so rare in a so called holiday area ?
