We stopped here during a 10 mile walk in the area.
Not a good as the Elephants nest we visited an hour earlier and did'nt feel as comfortable either.
It was awkward to get served as locals were hogging the small bar area (happens everywhere!) we managed to find a table out the way and luckily it was very late at lunchtime as it would have been awful if all the tables were taken as we were only drinking and not eating.

Not my sort of place 5/10

More of a food pub with a very small area for casual drinkers. Certainly not the place to relace, the staff were rushing everywhere and everywhere. Did not feel comfortable and went to the pub in Merrivale, not on this website that I can find but altogether a more relaxed and friendly pub with good pub food.

We really liked this pub, as it fitted what we were looking for at the time - a pub with a decent range of drinks and excellent food. In truth, I don't think I would have felt too comfortable if I was only drinking, as there did not seem much space for drinkers. However, the welcome we received was good and the place must have a good reputation locally, with the car park packed and all tables taken (our pervious pub - the Dartmoor Inn at Merrivale was extremely quiet. The food - curried parsnip soup and duck in a star anise and plum sauce was gorgeous. Beers were Branscombe Vale Draymans Best, Dartmoor Legend & Jail Ale. Cider was Sams Devon Poundhouse cider. The interior is typical country pub, as the previous reviewer states, even down to the smoky atmosphere from the log fire. Recommended.

Lovely real fire and a typical Country Pub atmosphere - How it should be.

Exactly which other "great pubs in Tavistock" markhuxley101 on 07/08/09? The one thing Tavi lacks is a lot of good, never mind great, pubs. On the other hand the Peter Tavy is an excellent pub, with outstanding food and excellent beer, usually 4 ales on. Minstrels shall sing of the steak pie which is delicious and very reasonably priced. As is common in these straitened times for pubs, it is as much of a restaurant as it is a pub but at least it is still open and serving good beer. WE found the staff absolutely charming and providing excellent service. Also the local cheese plate was cheese plate sized i.e very similar to what you get in restaurants but with the pleasing addition of labels to let you know exactly what you are eating - a good idea which other places should copy. The only snag is that there is no accommodation so you have to find a volunteer to drive home. Go there, drink the beer, eat the pie, and the cheese, and the desserts! Good pub, worth a detour 9 - well you have to detour to go to Peter Tavy in truth - rates an 8
