Best part of visiting the parents is eating here when we come to Devon, can be busy but that is expected, but worth the wait if you have too.

This place there is always a queue. They take your order and give you a number and almost everything is cooked fresh. You can also eat in but there are not many tables so its advisable to book

you are allowed dogs, if they are quite big and loud they ask that you sit on the takeaway side. Small dogs that are quiet are welcome in the restaurant area especially when it is not overly busy
