If you like ancient inns, put this former Devon longhouse, now in fresh hands, on your itinerary. Built in AD 825 it was once a nunnery (which explains the ghostly nun, although not the equally ethereal cavalier), and later a Domesday Book-recorded farm. It's a free house, so the dog-friendly bar offers a good choice of real ales and ciders, plenty of wines by the glass, and over 80 gins. The oak-beamed restaurant, with medieval stained-glass windows, prides itself on such dishes as confit duck leg with cavolo nero and roasted carrots; and fish pie with cod, smoked haddock, tiger prawns and scallop roe, topped with mashed potato and cheddar cheese. Grab a garden table for great views.
