Stopped off here 3 times while on our holiday. Staff were great and friendly. Dog friendly pub in a small friendly village. The locals were friendly and inviting. Great stopping place for lunch and a pint on your coastal walk. We’ll be back.

Book before you go down to Devon, because it's always packed and that's because it is excellent. There is a very nice hotel next door so many guests use the pub to eat as well.

I popped in for a pint after doing some sightseeing in the area. They had a good choice of ales and there is plenty of seating outdoors to enjoy food weather. Friendly staff and the menu looked good so I will return again.

Yes, the Village Inn is a dog friendly place. There are often a few dogs in there when I've visited, with and without my pet!

Yes they do, we asked for a table to make sure ours wasn't in the way and actually had a bench like sit for one person so the dog could curl up under the chair and table and was very comfortable.
