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.

The only reason for the low three star on atmosphere was because of the piped music which is very annoying when wants a quiet drink or meal. The staff were kind enough to send us into the lounge where it was turned off. Blessed relief! I am a music lover by the way.

Food was very tasty however over priced. Two mains one bottle of wine £70. Went to the Crabshell had starters for tow mains and bottle of wine plus a pint £68 food was as good If not better. Considering there isn't anything else buy the Village prices should be reviewed. We could eat in the hotel which is fabulous for similar money and what a difference. I think a good review of costs in the pub are needed.

We had a reservation for 2pm Sunday 6th, which was booked some time ago and reaffirmed 2 days prior. We arrived at 1:45 to be told there were no Sunday roasts, they had all gone!!! If it wasn't for the fact that we had taken a long walk to get there we would have left straight away.. Yes I'm sure you were busier than expected etc etc etc but to not have a roast option for a standing pre booked Sunday lunch is quite honestly pathetic.. Would I book again.....NO Advice to customers get there at 12 in case they run out of food!!! Very disappointed.

Not the best experience, cold and draghty , food very average, for the price would expect a lot better. Pub atmosphere no longer exists, not the place to go for a social drink at the bar.

Excellent dinner on the Sunday before NYE 2018. The place was full, but a very good atmosphere, excellent, cheerful service and a good choice on the menu. Plenty of local produce. No hesitation in recommending, but you should book.

Dear Village Inn i’m Really pleased you sent this across for feedback as I was in the process of writing to you. I would like to compliment you on everything about our Christmas Day booking. The Christmas Day lunch was outstanding. The Quality and quantity was superb. The staff were hugely attentative and all in good spirits and deserved to be congratulated as their customer service was the best I have ever seen anywhere else. We were a party of 11 and we have all said it was a fantastic experience and we can’t recommend you enough. We will be booking again next year. The 7 courses was amazing value for money and the best Christmas pudding I have ever tasted. Well done to all the team you should all be very proud!

This was our first Christmas Day lunch in a restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Your young team were brilliant, looked after us, plenty of time between courses, and the food was great. My compliments to you all.

Eaten here several times, not like it was, sadly lacking considering. Feel because nowhere else within walking distance on winter evening they probably don’t have to try.

Fish and chip Friday was good, Panna cotta dessert was the worst I have ever been served. Poor service, staff didn’t seem to be in control, overcharged on bill which was rectified. We were very cold sitting near the hotel corridor. Will not be returning anytime soon.

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.
