Coppa Dollar Inn, Totnes

Surprised no one else has reviewed this pub, which remains as good as ever. I've always found it best to stick to the pie menu, rather than going off piste and choosing something from the 'specials' blackboard on the wall, but the Dartmoor and Jail Ale is always v. good. Don't forget to book a table if eating at the weekend.

The Whalebone, Fingringhoe

Popped in here in Sunday with friends who live nearby. What a wonderful place. Very nicely furnished, lots of nice beers on offer, nicely maintained beer garden, pleasant staff and delicious food. Couldn't really fault it, which makes me wonder if the review below is genuine. Also find it hard to understand why this pub has such a low score. Highly recommended based on my visit.

The Kestor Inn, Manaton

This has just reopened after being shut for a while. Manaton is a small village on Dartmoor and the Kestor is the only pub there, so I really hope the new owners (who also run a pub in Chagford) succeed with it. Visited on Sunday 18th July 2010 for Sunday lunch (I had fish and chips, everyone else had roast beef). Food was good and beer excellent. Only slight disappointment was the décor - there's an extension at the front, used as the main dining area. It's a tad soul-less. The main part of the pub is too dark to eat in, but better lighting would change this.
