Lovely place, good service, spoilt by a very greasy pizza, just like last time. Soaked all the way through with grease. This place could be great if they concentrated on the quality of the food rather than the quantity.

Only visited the once, even though it is on my doorstep, shown to a table which must have been in the old cellar of the pub, down many stairs, and down corridors, service was OK, food was nothing to really write home about unfortunately. Not expensive, so no real complaints

Whether we want a quick bite to eat or a lazy lunch we always leave this great place with as mile on our faces. menu is extensive without there being too many choices,Steaks are always decent quality and well cooked,pizza's are top notch. I think that this is the best restaurant within the group.

This is one of my popular restaurants which I visit regularly. The food is real quality excellently cooked and priced reasonably. Tavistock is very popular and you should book in advance. The staff are all very friendly and will go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your visit, the ambience of the restaurant is traditional.
