This old pub was once a rope works and flax store, then a cider house. Owner Richard sources the majority of the produce for his French and British dishes from within a few miles – you’ll get an idea of the cooking style from dishes such as a starter of lightly curried chicken and apricot terrine with celeriac and organic leaves; and roast grouse with Savoy cabbage and bacon, bread sauce and game chips. Guests who just want something simple, like a Dexter beefburger and hand-cut chips, are equally welcome. Real ales are from Otter, Palmers, Teignworthy and other breweries, with ciders from Burrow Hill and Thatchers.
