We visited for a family party on a Saturday night. We were fed, pizzas, freshly cooked in the pizza oven on the terrace. Really perfect party food and great quality. The following day we returned for Sunday lunch. We both had the freshly caught lemon sole. Pan fried in lemon and herb butter,, accompanied with new potatoes and a mixture... More

We were on our way to a pub in Slapton but decided to take a flyer on this place which didn't pay off. This is a characterful pub and we received a friendly greeting, we ordered from the specials menu the Cray fish tails linguine with chilli, garlic, lemon grass and when it arrived it was a lump of dry...

After visiting numerous restaurants in the Kingsbridge area and being shocked by the low standards of food and high prices-I have finally discovered a gem. It was a splendid meal in convivial surroundings. The chicken supreme was perfectly cooked and both the Stake and Ale pie and Thai curry were delicious (but the Thai curry could have been a bit...

We are so sorry you were disappointed with your visit to us. The landlord/chef had had a heart attack that morning and the kitchen staff were trying to carry on as normal, perhaps in hindsight we should have closed on a Good Friday and disappointed numerous other happy diners. As to the wheelchair access we have numerous tables that are... More

We ate here in February and were so disappointed. As another reviewer said why change a winning formulae. We used to come to this pub regularly and always enjoyed the food. The steak and ale pie was a particular favourite of mine. Meat cooked to perfection, plenty of it with a lovely crusty top. A huge choice of veg in... More

This is first time that we have eaten here under the new owners. We had a friendly welcome and attentive service. Sadly the food is very disappointing, rather uninspiring menu choices, and the food we had was very average. We have so much great produce in Devon and places that have on the menu the traditional pub favourites with more... More

We were visiting the area last weekend and went to the pub to watch rugby. The place was very welcoming, the beer great and the atmosphere terrific with plenty of friendly chatty locals. We stayed on and had dinner which was superb. There's no ready-meals rubbish going on here and I am very happy to pay good money for locally-sourced,... More

I have previously eaten at this pub/restaurant many times in the past and knew that it had been taken over by new owners in January so thought as it was my birthday we would try here again for a Monday night evening meal and see what the new owners now had to offer its customers.
