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.

Sunday roasts run out early. Check before you come if that’s what you’re expecting!

This was our first visit to the pub for many years as the last one had been disappointing. I am delighted to say that since last time, the menu, the decor and the staff have improved - so much so that we visited it 3 times during our stay. The staff could not have been more friendly and professional and they certainly knew their stuff when questioned about the beers.

Hi. I booked a table for Sunday lunch for 4 persons for 1400 hours. I specifically asked if they do a Sunday roast and the answer was”yes” we are doing them again now. We got there at 1350 hrs and soon after ordered our drinks and then when they came to take our food order we were fold that they had run out of Sunday roasts. We were extremely disappointed as our granddaughters were really looking forward to this treat before returning to University at the end of the week. We were not happy at this situation and would advise others who would be looking toward a nice Sunday roast to be aware of this as I would not like anybody else to fall into this trap.

The whole meal experience was great, food drink and environment, my only criticism was the menu card and the ridiculous amount of h&s information on it, I'm glad I don't have any allergies or intolerances else I would have legged it.

A lovely evening only criticism is the prices were on the high side (particularly the deserts which put us off having them at £8 each).
