We visited at short notice over Christmas and had a lovely bar meal. Portions were huge and service good despite if being very busy. We have a wheelchair and it was no problem to get in and out even though it is a very old pub. Can highly recommend it.

Lovely staff who were incredibly helpful with our wheelchair. Good access and excellent disabled loo. The atmosphere was very pleasant, no loud 'muzak', and lots of people enjoying meals. You do need to be hungry, as the portions are pretty large! Staying nearby, we had dinner one evening and lunch another day. The set lunch at £7.5 was very good... More

We visited the Village Inn Ashwater on Saturday night, although it was very busy with people eating, they quickly accommodated us in a cosy corner of the pub. The food arrived quickly my partner had the curry, my father had a jacket potato and I had the fish and chips. The. Portions were enormous and the food was very tasty.... More
