Just 20 minutes from Exeter, this 17th-century building was once the village pub but now it’s a comfortably stylish restaurant-with-rooms. Low ceilings, parquet flooring and a lounge warmed by a wood burner adds to the cosy feel. In keeping with the age of the building, the two dining areas are simply decorated with striking artwork adding visual appeal. Superlative produce is sensitively handled with flavour at the forefront. Start with roast quail, onion tart, sage and parmesan, followed by grilled fillet of sea bass with saffron raviolo of crab. Finish with blackcurrant soufflé and vanilla ice cream.

About the area

Discover Devon

With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.

Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them. 

Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
