This inn, some parts of which date from the 15th century, offers good food – mainly in a grill-house-style and comfortable accommodation.
There menu lists items such as ‘Goats’ Cheese and Pesto Crostini, with Lambs Lettuce Salad’; ‘Soused Herrings, Warm Potato Salad and Sweet Dill Dressing’ and in darker months ‘Pheasant, Venison and Rabbit Terrine with home-made Apple and Sultana Chutney’ among the starters.
‘Home Baked and Glazed Ham with free-range Egg and Chips’; ‘Beer-Battered Brixham Fish & Chips with Crusted Minted Peas’; ‘Slow-Cooked Somerset Pork with Apple & Thyme, Dauphinoise Potatoes & Port Jus’ and various steaks – from local beef, and traditionally-aged for 28 days among the mains.
As well as their standard menu, they list specials on a blackboard, and these include both locally-caught fish and seasonal game.
For those with a sweet tooth, ‘Sticky Toffee Pudding and Vanilla Ice Cream’ and ‘Sautéed Apricots, Pistachio Nuts, Vanilla Syrup and Clotted Cream’ might be tempting. They also have a good selection of West Country cheeses.
