This is first time that we have eaten here under the new owners. We had a friendly welcome and attentive service. Sadly the food is very disappointing, rather uninspiring menu choices, and the food we had was very average. We have so much great produce in Devon and places that have on the menu the traditional pub favourites with more... More

We were visiting the area last weekend and went to the pub to watch rugby. The place was very welcoming, the beer great and the atmosphere terrific with plenty of friendly chatty locals. We stayed on and had dinner which was superb. There's no ready-meals rubbish going on here and I am very happy to pay good money for locally-sourced,... More

I have previously eaten at this pub/restaurant many times in the past and knew that it had been taken over by new owners in January so thought as it was my birthday we would try here again for a Monday night evening meal and see what the new owners now had to offer its customers. For starters we ordered the... More

Sorry but very disappointing meal had hoped it would be good with new owners but was unwelcoming, expensive, and fish pie was cold in the middle had to go back (small glass of house wine as compensation) so called large fish and chips was very small. Could not recommend at all

Being a regular favourite of ours, we tried here for the 1st time after new ownership. On entering the bar area we noticed the lack of the usual locals stood around. We were given our table number and left to find a non existent table, this was corrected when we returned to the bar and were once again left to... More

Food was very average and not particularly well cooked. The two blond ladies behind the bar, one of whom I assumed was in charge were quite unpleasant. I had to argue to get a change in the desert order for my son when they insisted it was his fault that the order was wrong, he's only 12. They forgot the... More

What a fabulous lunch at the Church House Inn, the food was delicious and there was plenty of it. We were made to feel very welcome by the new managers and the friendly staff and it was a treat to warm by the cosy log fire on such a cold day. We will definitely be returning when we are next...

We ate here last night with friends and loved it ... the pub oozes history and we were made to feel very welcome on our first visit by the new tenants, Suzie and Glen, though the pub seems to be popular with regular local groups too. There is a great choice of food on the menu - my fish pie... More
