We’ve combined bar, restaurant, and café into a truly individual one stop eating and drinking experience.

We’re open, so why not stop by and sample our fresh new menu, great drinks, and experience our unique, welcoming atmosphere.

N.B. A high top table is a taller table with bar stool hight chairs, the chairs have backs and are very comfortable but we recommend not booking these if you have very young children (under 5s) or members of your party who are less able bodied.

The staff were very attentive and pleasant. The food was good and very welcome after a 3.5 hr journey! My only down point is that the tea could be better, possibly a filter on the water!

Nachos were excellent but our tacos had apparently been sat under a heat lamp so were dried out. Wait staff were miserable apart from one. Almost like they didn’t want to be there. One waitress in particular just made you feel like an imposition. Shame because we’ve been here a lot and it’s always been good

My wife and I chose the fish and chips, which turned out to be a very bad choice, the fish was bland, soggy and tasteless, despite the fact that it was purportedly in beer batter, however, when we brought this to the attention of the staff our complaint was dealt with in a very professional manner and to our complete satisfaction

The menu is a mix of classic Italian/American and Mexican: pizzas, burgers and tacos. However, I ordered a rib-eye with peppercorn sauce from the specials menu and it was delicious.

Everything was nicely cooked: mangetout had a crispy bite to it, carrot and other veg tender, fries were golden and crunchy, and steak cooked to medium-rare perfection. I would have liked a choice of Diane and Béarnaise sauces, too, but no real complaint.

I tried a couple of desserts too, with the sticky toffee pudding coming out on top - light, fluffy and rich. The chocolate orange pudding (vegan, I think) was as good as it could be, perhaps?

The ambience was great, the decor interesting, the furniture clean, and the service very attentive. Great value and highly recommended. A genuine surprise!

We called in on the off chance on a Sunday evening, the host very kindly found us a table. Service excellent from the min we arrived until we left.
One of the best Sunday lunches we have ever had.
So good we
Went back for breakfast before we travelled home on Sunday, everything was also perfect! We will be back in Devon next summer and will definitely be back to the depot and recommending them to friends and family that will also be in the area.
Covid -19 practice is excellent too!

Wanted burgers but they were only served in Brioche or gluten free buns which we don't like. Would of been nice 2 have another option.
We found it difficult 2 choose something else as the menu 2 was somewhat limited but what we had was ok.
Service was slow but it was very busy at the time so that was possibly why. The staff very friendly & helpful though

Sorry to rate low but it wasn’t as good as our previous visits. Greeting at door good didn’t wait long, food arrived after we could see it on top of counter for a while, plates not that hot, food not very hot at all, peas like bullets, rest of veg ok but neither was very hot, when finished lad came and asked if all ok( couldn’t see point of saying no as couldn’t see who was in charge) he started clearing table we asked for bill. Waited, waited rest of table not cleared no bill. So asked a young lady and pointed out table not cleared completely asked for bill and hey presto someone came cleared table and was able to pay.

Staying in the area on holiday and drove past. Signage caught my eye as I'm a big fan of Mexican food. Checked out the website which needs updating asap as it says there is a limited menu. Nearly didn't book as a result but was pleasantly surprised when we got there to be offered the full menu. Food looked very appetizing as it was being served to othe5 customers. Chose the nacho bowl which was very tasty and a very big portion size. Staff were very friendly and it was very good value for money. Really liked the decor and if ever in Devon again, would go back.

Always have at least one meal here when holidaying in the area. We booked a table on-line considering it was peak season. Nice environment as tables are well spaced out, lighting isn’t overly bright, noise a comfortable level and it’s clean and tidy. The only thing I wasn’t keen on was the location of table because it was en route to the toilet with people regularly walking closely past me. Was good to see staff observing social distancing though. Service and food always very good. Prices of food competitive. There’s parking spaces and a seated outdoor area too.

Really lovely food apart from the waffle my son had, it tasted like a big spoon full of cinnamon. Other than that the food was great, the staff were great too. Obviously a very popular place as you have to book at least a day in advance to get a table. We booked the day before and only time slot they had was at 3:30pm but just goes to show it’s a great place to eat

I always love going to this venue. The service is some of the best I have had at any restaurant and the food is of excellent quality. I found out that the beef for burgers is sourced from local farms which makes me like the place even more. The service was fast even though they were busy and the staff were lovely and went above and beyond for us. Still one off my favourite places and I will visit again.

Nice hearty food, well cooked. However, we were left with dirty plates and empty glasses for quite some time until we asked for a dessert menu. There were a couple of waitresses who didn’t seem overly happy to be there but in general the staff were friendly
