Harden's survey result
Ex-Gidleigh Park chef Duncan Walker continues to win stellar marks for his food at this appealingly cosy, low-key seventeenth century village inn, on the edge of Dartmoor, and run together with Anthea Christmas; if you stay over in one of the three comfortable rooms “breakfast is also excellent”.
“Faultless food” from former Gidleigh Park chef Duncan Walker wins consistently high ratings for this “lovely” 17th-century village inn on the edge of Dartmoor, complete with “log fires, comfy sofas, and golden retrievers”. It’s a confined dining area, though, which can “leave one at the mercy of the loudly expressed opinions of the other diners”.
“Wonderfully tasty food is served impeccably in a homely atmosphere” at Duncan Walker (ex-Gidleigh Park) and Anthea Christmas’s restaurant-with-rooms, on the edge of Dartmoor. For one reviewer, the “personal service” starters with an “Ideal” reception by “two friendly golden retrievers” – though “with just three tables in a small room” (and 17 covers total) you can’t help but snoop on fellow diners.
Dan Walker (ex-22 Mill Street) and Anthea Christmas’s inn remains “excellent as always” – particularly its “very high standard” of cooking; for overnighters, the “wonderful welcome” and “touches like afternoon tea on arrival make the whole experience very special” (“we almost felt like we were staying with old friends”).
