We were a last minute booking which the staff kindly accommodated and as a party of 5 that was good news. We all felt hungry so went for starters and mains. The portions are very generous and my filo wrapped prawns nearly interfered with the excellent Exmoor fillet steak that followed. I am assured by my friend that her Pulled... More

Colleagues leaving party at The Bell last night, played skittles (badly) but had an amazing buffet. Terrific range of quality food which all tasted beautiful. Amazing sausage rolls, potato salad, pasta salad, sandwiches, curried eggs and chicken. Best buffet I have eaten in ages. Thanks

I had Sunday lunch with friends at this gem of a pub. I absolutely loved it. The atmosphere in the pub was fantastic and the service was excellent. There was a good range of real ales and wines available and the food was very good. There is a signed Arsenal shirt on the wall and while I was paying the... More

We went to this friendly relaxed restaurant as a large family group on a Sunday lunchtime. We all had the roast and the food was well cooked and plentiful. There were a large range of puddings though a few were no longer available. The sticky toffee pudding was lovely and the brownie sundaes went down very well too. The whole... More

When we arrived late due to terrible traffic and saw how busy it was we were worried we may have forfeited our table but the lovely lady who greeted us showed us straight to our table. The selection of drinks is extensive, there really is something to suit everyone. The food menu is lovely too, again with something to suit... More

We have been a few times now, when we visit our friends who live near by. Love the typically Devon village, it's picture perfect. The staff are always so helpful with the choice of meals, I have food intolerances and they went to great lengths to make sure my meal was ok for me. My friend had a steak which... More

Happened to pick a Weds lunch time and along with the normal menu there is an option of a roast meal. Delicious and tender beef, real roast potatoes and good selection of veg. Importantly good beers on tap and very attentive staff. The village is delightful as well with a nice square and the church is worth a visit.
