A thatched fifteenth century pub with “lovely landlords”, a “great ambience” and ambitious (for these parts) grub, sourced everywhere from a local rare-breed cattle farm to Rungis market in Paris.

“We’re so lucky to have a pub this good in the area”, agree regulars at this thatched 15th-century boozer “in an idyllic village”, whose kitchen uses fish from Brixham and St Mawes, rare-breed Lowlines cattle from a nearby farm, and produce from Rungis market in Paris. “OK it’s pub food, but far better than average in this part of the world”.

Head along “muddy lanes to nowhere” and with luck you’ll end up at this “warm, welcoming, large and gorgeous” gastroboozer; “fish is a surprise speciality this far from the sea, and is very good to eat – but so is everything else”.

A “typical West Country pub”, with an exposed-beam dining room, that’s “hidden away in the depths of the countryside”. “They specialise in fish, which is always fresh and well executed”, and – top tip – also garner praise for their “very good value” midweek prix fixe.
