Came here twice over a weekend, for drinks and nibbles on a Saturday and then for a Sunday Roast.The cheese board is very good. The roast was fantastic, one of the best I have had in a while. The desserts were amazing and the starter soup I had of wild garlic, nettles, broccoli and courgette was incredible.The service is fantastic, the staff are very friendly and smiley and they're on point, checking back and ensuring things are ok. Exactly how service should be.The location is also very good, looking out over the estuary. The atmosphere and decor are good giving a warm, friendly and upmarket feel to the place.Looking forward to coming back and sampling the rest of the menu.

Thank you – we had a lovely night, the food was amazing as always – apologies for my needy guests “have you got a dog blanket” .. “have you got a tooth pick” .. you had both .. they quite rightly thought you were wonderful… and I was proved right, it’s the best sticky toffee pudding that anyone has ever tasted.

We loved our long lunch with an amazing view. Everything was excellent, the menu, food and friendly service. So good to find somewhere with a really good children’s menu too. Will definitely return when next in this beautiful corner of Devon.

Beautiful views and lovely pub. My only negative is it's quite expensive for what it is. Also, they serve their glasses of prosecco with massive glasses which makes the prosecco look half empty!!

Quite the table for a celebration weekend. Down in Devon for our daughters wedding. The weekend also happened to be my birthday weekend. Short notice booking a table for 6 at lunchtime but the gave is the best view in the house, overlooking the estuary. A birthday card on the table and the lovely ladies waiting on tables made such a fuss of us when they found out we were celebrating a wedding too. The food was divine, main and just enough room for dessert. Will Definitely be back when we are in the area.
