An excellent restaurant with rooms, hidden behind a cream and green shopfront, in this village on the edge of Dartmoor.
There's a small lounge, for pre-prandial drinks, and the comfortable dining room has well-spaced tables, with crisp white napery.
Starters include the likes of 'Ravioli of Langoustine and Basil, Saffron and Sweet Pepper Veloute'; 'Breast of Wood Pigeon with Ceps and Gnocchi' and 'Scallops in a Broth of Lime, Coriander and Ginger'.
Mains perhaps 'Fillet of Roast Sea Bass with Oysters and a Warm Cucumber Salad'; 'Grilled Breast of Creedy Carver Duck, Braised Endive and Macerated Fruits' and 'Sweetbreads and Jerusalem Artichokes with Madeira Sauce'.
Desserts maintain the high standard - perhaps 'Baked Dark Chocolate Fondant with Roasted Praline Ice Cream'; 'Crème Brûlée with Strawberries and Honeycomb' or 'Hot Raspberry Soufflé'.
If in a hurry, mention the fact, as service is relaxed - that being part of the pleasure. No children after 20.00, and none at all under 4 years of age.
To make a real event of the occasion, you could plan ahead, and stay the night in one of their comfortable bedrooms. See our 'Accommodation' section.
