Third visit, the food was to its usual standard. The presentation was excellent as was the taste! I only had one pint, it was not very exciting, but as I was driving I couldn't really try the others. Previous experience tells me this was just unlucky.

Only real downside, it a bit cool, but that suited the dogs!

We stayed overnight here. The accommodation was very close to 5 star (bathroom soap let it down). The bar was first class. The real ales although good were not in the same league as the farmhouse "Mad Apple" cider. The staff were lovely and the local Cidermaster was also an entertaining customer.
The food was a tour de force. The seafood starter on a bed of samphire went straight into the top five starters ever table. The sirloin steak that followed was top notch, beautifully cooked and piping hot. A little more work needed on the chips to match the excellence of the steak.
We do quite a few overnighters every year and we cannot recall anywhere that comes close . The points I've raised are hints for improving what is very good, not criticisms.
Most places can learn a lot from here. We will be back.

The local paper boasted three fires in the pub. I wouldn't be too excited about three gas fires!! We have eaten at the Blue Ball many times and recently with the new managers it was not very good.

Yes it's open again, but very quiet on a Thurdays evening with nearly as many dogs in the place as customers. Paris Hilton might be like to know thatthe other beer they had on tonight, in addition to the Mac otter and legend was none other that Exmoor ale. It was undrinkable and had to be changed. Having said tht, it's a nice pub but a bit off the beaten track at this time of year. Ramblers note: they do a ramblers breakfast, starting quite early, which might be tried once the weather gets better,
Didnt eat but menu looked fine if a bit fancy.

Visited on Sunday lunchtime after a walk up the hill to the Triscombe Stone and back. Very different barn-conversion-type pub that seems to concentrate on food but keep a selction of good real ales instead. MacOtter (otter Ale), Dartmoor Legend and another with the pump clip turned round (would'nt be surpreised if it was the ever-present Doom Bar). The Legend was finebut, as usual with pubs in this area, some variation in the ales on offer would be nice .

You enter the front door and ascend the stairs to the main bar and restaurant (via a stair-lift if you need to!!. There is a second entrance round the back directly into the garden and the bar.

Plenty of diners, it seemed very popular. Very pleasant, I will visit again
