Beware The Honiton Inn serves hot food on cold plates. The meat in the steak and ale suet was tough and gristly whilst the suet was good as were the vegetables that accompanied the meal, but to present hot food on a cold plate is an absolute anathema to me.

Thank P C
Management response:

Dear P C May we first apologise for the cold plate normally are plates are to hot to handle . Unfortunately when diced beef comes from the butcher there may on occasions when some gristle may be present which we try to avoid. yet again may we apologise our suet puddings very popular and have not had complaints prior to...

We visited The Honiton Inn lunchtime on Sunday 5th Feb (luckily we'd booked as it was full!) and had a superb Sunday Lunch. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we were made to feel extremely welcome. The meals were cooked to perfection (we had the Sunday roasts along with dishes on the a la carte and the...

Attended back earlier this month and was the first time I'd been. I must say I loved it the food was amazing and great cost. Staff were on good form and very happy to help and managed our party of 14 people. Lovely place and well worth a visit will be Coimbatore to see you again.

Walking in, the pub was deserted, no staff in sight. The manager appeared, I asked if he was open for food. He replied,... More

The beer battered fish was very tasty and crispy. We enjoyed our meal in the restaurant. We had our meal early so the pub was quiet.

Popped in for a beer having been unsuccessful in another local establishment. In fairness the pub had just opened, nobody else in & it would have benefitted from the fires being lit to add a bit of atmosphere & warmth but with any pub once you get a few people buzzing around the atmosphere changes.

Nothing much to say really. I see the excellent reviews on here and have no reason to doubt that the food and decor etc etc etc are good.
