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.

Exceeded our expectations. Service was friendly, attentive, prompt and not too pushy. Food was excellent and the range of choices within the menu was mouth-wateringly tempting. The ambience was warm and inviting. Attention to detail was meticulous. In short, outstanding in every respect. We look forward to a return visit.

We had a table for 12 in the lounge bar area (first time we'd eaten in this area) and everyone had great service and generous helpings. Nice room to eat in as well.

Proper village pub. Wood burner, dog friendly & good food. Not the cheapest pub but value for money. The staff are professional, welcoming, friendly & have a great sense of humour - they make this a pub special. Would highly recommend. We'll be returning soon hopefully!

Very welcoming staff and good service. Only criticism is recording of name as “unknown”. It would be better leaving this box empty. It makes us feel uncared for!

In spite of emailing to ask specifically for a table in the bar area, the table allotted was in the lounge. Fortunately, my son arrived early and was able to change the table as those that had made a reservation for the table in the bar area had not yet arrived. The other issue I experienced was that the phone number goes to an automatic service that asked for an extension number but will not put you through to the Village Inn. This did not help when making the reservation online as I had to ask for a table in the bar area by email once the booking was confirmed.

Went Sat night. Great evening, great service, great food, great family meal. Went back Tues. Started great and then service went completely downhill. Asked for water twice - it never came. On third time it did. Then had to ask if we could have our deserts after waiting ages - even though no other guests in the room at this time. Then had to go find them to ask for the bill. Then had to go to front to pay as no one came back and complained. Real shame as left with uncomfortable feeling for all.

Really nice pub,have been several times,however on this visit food was served cold and when I quietly complained to both waiters,they both said they would inform the chef..?Its not a chef problem it is that the food spends to long at the pass prior to getting to the table.A lot more effort required from the waiters to bring this up to a decent standard .Nothing worse than good cooked food being served cold.!!!!!
