Mediterranean slant to excellent menus

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year

Michelle and Francois Teissier have been at the helm of this welcoming Devon village pub for well over a decade. So many things contribute to its traditional feel – the low wooden beams and stone walls, the winter log fire, the art-deco prints and Tiffany lamps, not to mention the paintings by Devonian and Cornish artists. And there’s the bar, of course, where locally brewed Otter ales are the order of the day. Chef-patron Franky (as everyone calls him) trained in classical French cooking at a prestigious establishment in the Loire Valley, a grounding that accounts today for his rustic French, Mediterranean and British menus. As Franky sums up: ‘When Michelle and I took over in 2003, our aim was to create a friendly, inviting village pub offering great value, high-quality food made from the freshest ingredients; with our combination of rustic French dishes and traditional British food with a Mediterranean twist, there’s something for everyone!’ Outside there is a grassy beer garden and walled terrace area with tumbling grapevines.
