Stopped off for lunch. Steak and ale pie was delicious. The smoothest mash. My husband said his fish and chips were perfect. Generous portions. Cosy local atmosphere. Staff were lovely. My dog even got a biscuit from the young lady.

Lovely old traditional bar and restaurant on the outskirts of Barnstaple. Nice friendly staff, good service with a smile. .popped in for a quick bite at lunch but also recommended for evenings and weekends. Good for parties or a family get together. Good menu choices, the only downside is there is alot of pork on the menu. Nice wine and beer selection.

We came for a meal here with some family from up country that we hardly ever see and we were absolutely disgusted by the service we received. The waitress was beyond rude, she never bothered to take a drinks order whilst we were being served our main. She rolled her eyes at us when collecting our starter plates whilst my sister in law wanted to finish the last bit of one of the starters.We then requested for some drinks because it was evident that she wasn’t going to take one. She never checked to see if we enjoyed our meal. She then cleared our plates and never asked whether any of us wanted desserts or anymore drinks. We left a 20 minute gap to see if she would actually bother and when asking for the dessert menu she said we couldn’t have any because the kitchen closed 10 minutes ago. We were willing to spend a lot of money on a three course with drinks as well to spoil our family and we were really looking forward to coming here because the food is superb.Our entire visit to this lovely restaurant was completely ruined by a rude blonde member of staff that evidently despises her job. I suggest this pub removes this member of staff before she ruins your business.

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.
