Five minutes from Junction 29 of the M5, this flagstone-floored, surprisingly roomy gastroboozer is the ultimate anti-service-station, turning out quality pub grub and a particularly good-value ‘Totally Devon’ menu showcasing the best of the West Country.

“Lovely pub food” continues to underpin the popularity of this very “lively”, keenly priced and tardis-like roadside institution, which has racked up numerous awards during its quarter of a century in business.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
