My family and I visited the Ashburton Arms in January to celebrate my Nan's birthday. Sadly, however, we wished we had found somewhere else to go. Drinks and starters seemed to come reasonably quickly and were of a good standard, but afterwards the meal went downhill. The woman working as a waitress seemed very much like she didn't want to...

Having tried a few of the local pubs during our stay this one definetly came out tops. Well done and thanks to the Landlord and... More

This is a lovely place to eat - we came for Sunday lunch and it was quite excellent - all sorts of extra little touches that you wouldn't necessarily expect in a small town eatery, but the cuisine is excellent. Our hosts are lovely, too - and very generous - my Golden Retriever was even given a piece of sirloin... More

The best review I can give this place, is that we can't wait to go back...... so we are! Ray is a fantastic host, and his staff do him proud. Basil our jack russell loved him, especially his breakfast sausage.

We have come here numerous times for their "steak on the rocks" which is served only a few nights a week! We have had steak on the stone in several other countries, and we must say - they do a great job! The steak is served raw on a hot stone grill, you slice off thin pieces and cook to... More

We stayed a few doors away from the Ashburton Arms during our holiday in Devon and went there on a Monday night. The pub is quite traditional in style, slightly old fashioned with an older clientele but very warm and welcoming. The food was fantastic, the starters in particular were great, fresh - thickly cut calamari and lovely fresh whitebait.... More

Very friendly service, made to feel very welcome. Nice atmosphere in the pub. We had the pub speciality, steak on the rocks! You cook it yourself on hot stones, great fun, can't blame the chef if not cooked to perfection! Would certainly recommend this pub.
