About The Village Inn

The 16th Century Village Inn, complete with beams salvaged from Spanish Armada ships wrecked on the nearby coast, is a popular free house owned by the Grose family for more than a century and is where they first offered hospitality to visitors.

The Village Inn incorporates stylish modern décor with traditional influences and whether sat outside in the sunshine or inside by the cosy log burner it is a relaxed venue to enjoy a real ale or glass of wine and something to eat.

Scott Woodall and his team make The Village Inn popular with guests and locals alike and it is a favoured stop off for walkers on the South West Coastal Footpath. The menu offers freshly prepared meals, signature dishes and daily blackboard specials. Children and dogs are very welcome.

I have eaten at the Village Inn on several occasions and never been disappointed-the food is always of high standard. I like that the menu is varied and my friend from London loves the vegetarian options. Love the decor and always great ambience.

Starters not provided. Main meals took a long time. One was cold. Other was plain. Served by young people more interested in talking to circle of friends.

Nice pub but food service was quite slow and we waited a long time between courses. Food was average; slightly overpriced.

Had dreadful bottle white wine, pointed out was warm when opened & had ice added to cooler which did nothing to improve it. Mentioned it again & just got a blank ‘oh I’m sorry’ from waitress.... no offer to change or refund. Really disappointed & put us off returning during our holiday. Service quite hit & miss too... lot of young staff... shame as meals themselves really tasty.

Nice pub especially with the new extension which was a much needed addition, but the food is overpriced for the standard of quality. Staff are friendly and helpful but attention to detail is lacking. Could be a lot better considering it's attached to such an established and prestigious hotel.

Much more than a village pub without loosing the village pub appeal or atmosphere Great menu with the added bonus of catering for those with food allergies as well as being cooked and presented perfectly. The pub also has a fab area too chil on big sofas as well as popular outdoor seating where you can people watch all day whilst enjoying a tipple from the great selection of beers, ciders or wines..

We found the table was away from the atmosphere of the pub we felt that we had been stuck up a corner, the portion control to the plates was mean £ 21 pounds for the lamb you would expect a better portion most carvery venues would give a larger portion at lesser cost vfm needs to be better. We would dine with you again but would ask for a better table. Regards Steve j

Our first time to The Village Inn, but it won't be our last! Excellent food with a brilliant selection of veg, including some local asparagus. Polite, friendly and very obliging service from both Freddie and Libby. What's more, it's fully dog-friendly, so George the Border Terrier could be there too. Thanks, Village Inn. We will be back. :o)

I can honestly say, the Village Inn is at its best. I have been using the Inn for 45 years and seen many managers come and go. Scott runs this pub superbly, he always spares a minute to say hello. His enthusiasm is infectious, his organisation skills, an art. The food is so vastly improved with seasonal menus. Keep going!
