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 food is of an excellent quality. Beautiful seafood and steak on our first night, it’s a bit rustic in the main bar but enjoyed the sitting room on our second visit. Staff cheerful, attentive and friendly and our dog was welcomed too which was a real bonus for us.

Lovely food - can be a little bit of a wait when busy but food is worth the wait. Starters and desserts were a bit pricier than I would have expected. However overall 9/10 staff friendly and helpful - good atmosphere and very clean.

When the lady brought the drinks she did say rather loudly “ large glass of rose “ I did find this rather embarrassing. Perhaps drop the large bit in future.

Our weekend family event at Thurlestone (for 25 people of all ages) began with a meal at the Village Inn. We had our own, dedicated area of the Inn, sufficiently separate so that we were unlikely to disturb other diners, but not so separate that we felt isolated from the Inn itself. A waiter was assigned to our group for the whole evening - a great idea. He was responsive to requests, adaptable and both friendly and efficient, coping with groups of people arriving throughout the evening and separate billing for each group. The food was very good, as was confirmed by several unsolicited comments by members of our party. Keep up the good work!
