    Finally found a decent real ale here! The only problem I have with visiting north Devon is that you can’t get a decent pint of real ale anywhere!! It’s Tribute or nothing in most places! Or worse still, Doombar! But found a superb pint here!...More

    Unfortunately Facebook does not appear to recognise this establishment for food only which is what I wanted to really review. We ate here recently on our group walking weekend down in North Devon. The food was very good and the service both efficient and friendly....More
