Find this excellent foodie pub delightfully-set in a converted 16th century barn, in secluded gardens. Once in, expect exposed stone walls, old-timber-frame-separated 'rooms', pub-style objet d'art, open fires, hanging dried hops plus a good selection of real ales.
On the food front, you can eat in the bar, outside under the trees or in their deep-red, country-style dining room.
A summer menu, listed 'Lobster Bisque with Parmesan & Croûtons'; 'Cannellini Bean Dip with Black Olives, Red Onion & Pecorino Bread'; 'Baked Camembert with Parma Ham' and 'Ardennes & Porcini Mushroom Paté with Pickles & Bread' among the starters/light dishes.
'Roast Chicken Stuffed with Sun-Blushed Tomato & Pinenuts in Parma Ham and Caesar Salad'; 'Monkfish & Tiger Prawns in Red Thai Curry with Coconut Milk'; 'Wok-Fried Ribeye Steak with Ginger & Spring Onion, Fried Rice & Sweet Chili Sauce' plus Burgers and Aberdeen Angus Steaks from the Grill listed among the mains. Fresh fish from the Brixham boats is a particular speciality.
Those seeking something sweet, might find 'Chocolate St. Emillion' and Sticky Toffee Pudding' among the tempting desserts.
