I recently visited The Chitch pub located in Bishops Tawton village and was thoroughly impressed with my experience. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, with friendly staff. The highlight of my visit, however, was the food.As a party of 11, we all opted for the roast – with only one of us deviating from this choice. The roast beef was outstanding, perhaps the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating. My family members also raved about the belly pork, which was cooked to perfection and had a delicious crispy crackling.The servings were incredibly generous, with stuffing, Yorkshire puddings, and a whopping 7 roast potatoes on each plate. My family and I left with full bellies and a little bit of embarrassment over the amount of leftover food we couldn’t finish.All in all, The Chitch is a fantastic pub that successfully combines great food with a warm and inviting atmosphere. I highly recommend giving it a try if you’re in the Barnstaple area.

Best Sunday roast I have had in a long time – better than anything in my native Bristol at least! Good service, friendly staff happy to help with any request and put up with kids running around and being kids. We sat next to the kitchen on a lovely old table and had the biggest roast I could imagine. Pork, beef and Turkey were all first class, with a brilliant nut roast for veggies. Plates came out full enough of food to fill you up, and that was before they brought out all the extra veg (including a brilliant cauliflower cheese). Only complaint would be that we were too full to even think about dessert, but I guess that saved us a bit of money at least. Decent selection of ales alongside the food as well. Couldn't recommend enough and can't wait for a return trip to Devon to try it again!

A nice local bar with delicious foods.Sunday roast was very good, tender roast beef and pork. Good portion sizes with fair prices (around £15).The pork baguette was amazing, loved the crispy crackling juicy roast pork. The flavour was on point, it was not too salty and the skin had a perfect crunch!We tried two desserts: chocolate mousse layered cake and sticky toffee pudding. Both were delicious. You can choose to have single cream, double cream, clotted cream or ice cream on the side for both desserts.Would come back again next time we're in town, highly recommend.

Just been for a Sunday roast. Absolutely AMAZING, portions huge, hubby had mixed roast & I had veggie option. Proper carvings of meat & a huge selection of freshly cooked veg. Extra gravy too :) Staff were lovely & very helpful. Found us a quiet area for our very nervous rescue dog. Thank you very much to all. Will definitely be back.
