Find this popular foodie-pub with rooms a few miles north of Tiverton. It's still very much the village 'local' offering real ales in an unspoilt atmosphere.
On the food front, the kitchen relies on carefully-sourced local produce, plus fish from the Brixham day boats, and this is combined into a menu listing both traditional pub style dishes such as Fish & Chips and Shepherds Pie, with more elaborate à la carte offerings.
A late Spring menu listed 'Potted Salt Beef with Pear Pickle & Toasted Muffin'; 'Salmon & Crab Fishcake on a Basil, Lime-Lemon & Honey Dressing' and 'Goats' Cheese & Sun Blush Tomato Parcel on Petit Ratatouille with Basil & Rocket Dressing' among the starters.
'Slow-Cooked Pork Belly with Roast Butternut Squash & Honey, Sesame & Soy Dressing'; 'Rump of Devon Lamb with White Bean & Chorizo Cassoulet and Spinach'; 'Fillet of Wild Sea Bass with Red Pepper Risotto Cake & Confit Tiger Prawns' and 'Asparagus & Pine Nut Risotto with Truffle Oil & Shavings of Parmesan' listed among the mains.
If you still have room or just fancy a Pud you might be tempted by 'Homemade White Chocolate & Baileys Cheesecake'; 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream' or 'Stem Ginger Pannacotta with Rum & Lemon-soaked Autumn Dried Fruits'. While those with a more savoury tooth should enjoy their selection of West Country Cheeses.
