The Victoria Inn


2 rosettes

Reputedly one of the oldest inns in the county, this is in the heart of the village just a minute off the Coast Path. It radiates warmth and character, helped along by pleasant and engaging service. Locals gather here for a drink and a chat, but the food draws people from far and near. The kitchen makes the most of good West Country produce, and dishes never fail to interest. Exe mussels go into a risotto with leeks and rocket, and could be followed by roast fillet of local pork with pig's cheek, apple sauce, black pudding and root vegetable mash. Dishes are thoughtfully put together and accurately cooked: a starter of squid and prawns in light, crisp tempura with spicy vegetable salsa and coriander sauce, for instance, and juicy, succulent roast venison steak with roast vegetables, parsnip purée and red wine jus. Puddings can be a star, among them dark chocolate mousse with caramel sauce, Tia Maria cream and coffee ice cream.
