Visited the weary ploughman twice in the last 3 months when staying in the area. A lovely restaurant with good service and good choice of food. Their homemade pizzas are lovely, I can recommend the Sunday lunches too which we had on our last visit....More

Enjoyed a get together with lunch, staff very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very comfortable and we were given excellent attention throughout. I found the food expensive compared to other venues for the same or similar meal.

Food, service and atmosphere was amazing. Food was really good quality. I think this was the best meat for out holidays. A short drive from Brixham but worth it.

The restaurant, bar and rooms at the Weary Ploughman at Churston has been extensively refurbished to a very high standard during the last two years to provide somewhere to eat, meet or stay that is very welcoming and comfortable, but not in any way pretentious. Our menu is varied and freshly cooked using, whenever possible, produce sourced locally.
