Mark and Laura Hodges took over this 16th-century village pub in 2012 and although very much a destination, they have retained the local drinkers by offering real ales from local breweries like Box Steam alongside Ashton Press and Toodle Pip ciders, plus 20 wines by the glass. The kitchen makes good use of the local produce, with free-range meats from the farm opposite, day-boat fish from Lyme Bay and Brixham, and vegetables from nearby Bromham. Hake, lemon and dill fishcake with samphire and lemon relish might precede roast partridge breast, shallot purée, confit leg and wild mushroom pithivier, kale and gravy. Pub quizzes are every other Tuesday.
