Excellent friendly staff, food very good pub nosh with local specialities, beer and cider well looked after and occasionally staggeringly good, literally. Friday live and own music evenings. Lovely gardens with wide woodland vistas, leading down to the beautiful Lee bay.

I found this pub by accident with some friends on a walking trip. Really good atmosphere, great beer. Enjoyed an impromptu tour of the attached micro brewery. Great visit, what a lucky find!

The Grampus is a traditional pub with open and good food and drink, what more do want? Dog friendly and outdoor seating for the beautiful days in Devon.
