New Inn Coleford

Coleford, Exeter (Nr.), Devon, EX17 5BZ
Find this pretty thatched inn, with comfortable bedrooms, close to Dartmoor National Park, just off the A377 and close to Crediton and Exeter.
You'll find a warm welcome, real ales, plus plenty of atmosphere from original beams, flagstone floors and old open fireplaces. There's also the attraction of 'Captain' - an Amazonian talking parrot, who has supervised proceedings for many years.
On the food front you can eat in the Bridge Bar, more formally in their dedicated Hayloft Restaurant or – if the weather allows - on their terrace or deck by the Cole Brook under a beautiful willow tree.
The kitchen has taken great pains to source top-quality local produce, including fresh fish from the Brixham boats, 'Clannaborough' beef and 'Creedy Carver' poultry; and the menu combines tradition with more ambitious and modern touches.
Whilst this changes with the seasons, starters such as 'Crispy Whitebait with Lemon & Tartare Sauce'; 'Moules Mariniere with Crusty French Bread'; 'Homemade Chicken Liver Paté with Toasted Pine Nut Butter' and 'Seared Scallops with Crispy Bacon Lardons & Seasonal Leaves' set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Creedy Carver Duck Leg Confit with Bigarade Sauce'; 'Grilled Sea Bass Fillets with Lemon & Rosemary with Romesco Sauce) with Fries & Salad'; 'Gammon Steak with Free-Range Egg & Chips' and 'Slow-Roast Lamb Shank with a Tomato, Red Wine & Butter Bean Sauce with Chorizo' among the extensive list of mains.
Desserts such as 'Chocolate Truffle Torte with Chocolate Sauce' and 'Spiced Apple & Caramel Cake with Toffee Sauce' are there to tempt you if you still have room.
