Convenient for travellers to or from the west country on the A303 in need of quality food in a welcoming atmosphere and pleasant surroundings. 3 courses for two without drinks £70. Peaceful village with easy parking. Bar attracts local and the restaurant pulls in travellers and parties from a wider catchment so suspect the food is great across the menu...

We booked 5 rooms, for 2 nights as we had a family wedding nearby, the rooms were all lovely and very clean. We had a lovely stay and the breakfast was very good too. We made a reservation for dinner for the Friday night, which was delicious. Sarah is very welcoming and a brilliant host and front of house! She...

The food is first class. We never had a bad one. The staff are also excellent and knowledgeable regarding Gluten Free alternatives. Some items on the menu can be adjusted to offer a Gluten Free option. Look this one out, not one to miss.

I booked this place for my wife's birthday. Menu was awful for choice! I booked the only steak on menu with a sauce. My wife booked a red onion steak burger.

We stopped on our way to Cornwall to have a pre-booked meal. The hosts were very helpful and friendly and we had an exceptional meal worthy of a 5* Hotel. Great wine selection too. A great start to the holiday! If only we lived nearer to make it a regular haunt for visits with friends and family.

Can not fault this place, definitely deserves 5 stars. The staff were friendly and happy to recommend dishes. The steak was the best steak I've ever eaten! The puddings were very delicious. We will be back for more! Will highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area :)

Went for dinner with another couple. Had a few drinks in the hidden beer garden out the back in the sunshine....perfect. Dinner was lovely..nice selection of traditional favourites, fish and some lovely main dishes. Would have liked an option of sides like vegetables etc and some specials not already on the main menu but it was fantastic all the same....

A very friendly pub with a good atmosphere and on a Wednesday night with lots of customers, this is good for a partly destination pub as the village is fairly small. We didn't book but we will in the future because there was a lot of people eating. I had plaice and chips and it was probably the best piece...

Stayed here with my 10 year old daughter, our room was lovely and clean, the staff could do enough to help us and the food was amazing. Will definitely stay here again a beautiful country pub. The breakfast was filling and very good Quality. It's a lovely place to stay with a lovely couple running it

Found this lovely pub by accident last Saturday. It was a great spot to stop by for lunch and a break from a long road trip. It's a pity we had to leave as would happily have sat there all afternoon .
