The Lazy Toad


Dating from the late 18th century, when the village farrier and wheelwright worked in the cobbled courtyard, this oak-beamed Grade II listed pub is run by Harriet and Mike Daly who welcome all comers, including dogs on leads in the bar and the walled beer garden. Polished slate tiles surround a bar serving ales from the likes of Otter and the Exeter Brewery, Sandford Orchards ciders from Crediton, and wines from Sharpham near Totnes, and Camel Valley near Bodmin. A smallholding behind the pub supplies vegetables, fruits and herbs for dishes on the short, daily changing menus. These offer starters of crispy squid with lime, pickled carrot salad and chilli jam; and mains of roasted faggots, creamed mash potato, runner beans and red wine gravy; or white bean stew with root vegetables.
