Owners Rebecca and Richard Robinson, once part of the London restaurant scene, were drawn back to this lovely part of the country and now run this pub that was once a rope works and flax store, then a cider house. 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; or herb gnocchi, fennel, wild mushrooms and a crisp hen's egg. Given Richard and Rebecca’s pledge that the 'great British pub experience is important to them', they equally welcome those who just want something simple, like a Dexter beefburger and hand-cut chips, for example. Real ales are from Otter, Palmers, Teignworthy and other breweries, with ciders from Burrow Hill and Thatchers.
