We came from North Devon to meet up with friends, and were pleasantly surprised when we walked in. It was a Wednesday night, and it seemed busy in the bar as they take part in a weekly poker league. After chatting with some locals and having a few local beers, we decided to have something to eat as the smell... More

Yet again we had another amazing meal from the bishop. We opted for takeaway this time, curries and scampi. Both were delicious. The scampi was the best I have tried for years. Friendly staff and good food. Keep up the good work.

One of the many great places to eat in this charming area, with an atmospheric interior, friendly staff, and some truly fantastic food, a good hideaway sort of place, and quite romantic, also the location is perfect, Hope this has been of some help for you...

We booked in for Saturday at 18.00, but did not get our main course for well over 90 minutes. The young lad that was serving kept apologising saying they were very busy, but there were not many tables occupied in the dining area. When the food arrived it was plentiful. When we paid the barman commented that when he came... More

We recently stopped off at the Bishop Lacy for lunch.... the landlady who all the locals called 'Ma', made us feel very welcome. We all had the Sunday roast which was amazing! great portion size, but still enough room left for fantastic dessert... we stayed and had a beer in the bar, lots of local ales and Rugby on TV......

I am in the doghouse as I forgot to take the meat out of the freezer yesterday. Fully redeemed myself when I suggested "The Bish" for Sunday lunch. Lots of Brownie points to me thanks to the great staff and food at the Bishop Lacey. Pub was full to the gunnels but the accommodated us. We all had the Sunday... More
