Journeying round east Devon decided to stop here for a meal - excellent choice. Staff were friendly and the food was excellent. I had the sausage and mash and my wife had the lamb burger. Both tasted lovely.

Hello, from memory there is only a ladies & men's standard toilets. However, I suggest you call them as you are fairly local.

Definitely dog-friendly. Been here twice over a period of 3 years. Staff petted our two dogs and gave them dog biscuits.
