Trip Advisor Reviews

13th July 2023 - Fabulous Find:

This amazing place was recommended by a friend and is a perfect rural pub. We knew as soon as we were greeted by the smiling staff that we were in for a treat. The menu was an interesting mix of pub classics and some more unusual dishes; ours were expertly cooked by a talented chef. The hake in tomato sauce was delicious, while my wife loved her gammon, which was served with fresh pineapple and egg. There is a choice of desserts, all of which are made on the premises. The selection is not huge, but is appropriate for a modest country inn. The atmosphere was friendly and clearly popular with the locals. This was our first visit, and definitely not our last, although it is a considerable distance from home. Many thanks to the staff for giving us a memorable evening.

18th June 2023 - A hidden gem - Fab food:

Pretty place, lovely staff and a fantastic chef. Been twice - partner claimed best pie ever - and he has sampled a few! Lamb rump beautiful. Went back for Sunday roast and it was delicious - meat spot on gorgeous (beef pink and tender - pork belly melting and crispy) roasties and parsnips fab with a lovely selection of veg and proper cauliflower cheese and all very reasonable. We will definitely be going back - an absolute gem 😁😍

4th June 2023 - Great pub amazing food:

We cycled here from home and thought we would stop for a drink. The food looked good so we ordered a roast dinner. The lady who served us was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Really great food and Dartmoor Beer. Who could ask for more. Thanks so much. We will be back soon.

5th March 2023 - New landlady/Great pub:

The new landlady at the Monks and her team are very friendly and welcoming, the food is fantastic and great value for money. She has also put on live music events and is getting it back to being a pub, where the locals can enjoy a chat and drink in a great environment.
