Been here twice in last few months when visiting friends who have moved to the area. First time we were not disappointed, good menu choice and food was great. You always wonder if second visit will match your previous and it certainly did. PS make sure you look at the desserts in the display cabinet as some are extras that... More

Popped in here for a family lunch with our two 6 month old babies. Staff were amazing, bringing us two high chairs and cushions, and some children's books, without us even having to ask. Food was really good, particularly the delicious desserts. Big portions, and well presented. Definitely family-friendly, we were made to feel very welcome.

First class pub/restaurant, excellent food, spotlessly clean with friendly helpful staff. We made a lunchtime visit whilst en route to Salcombe and were thoroughly impressed, we'll certainly pop in again.

Dined here one evening whilst staying at Hawkchurch Resort and we were given a table upon arrival. We were told that food would be approx 45 mins from time of order as they were quite busy that evening. We opted for the rump steak which turned out to be the best steak we have eaten. Finished off with a delicious... More

We tried Hunters Lodge food and it was good honest pub food in nicely decorated pub/restaurant. Portions were large and staff was very friendly, good value for money. Rated four however as food for me was lacking finesse and I would rather see smaller portion but more refined in future. But it is good for traditional honest pub food and... More

A very popular pub/restaurant where you need to make a reservation. We were staying locally for a week and went there twice within a few days. Food was excellent and staff were even better. Highly recommended
