    The food was lovely, but we both felt like there wasn’t enough carrots on plates. Every thing else was just lovel

    We really love that it is doggy friendly and even has a dog wash outside for after those muddy treks on the Moor. Location is great. Pub has a great ambience and is very friendly. However, although our food tasted good, the portions were very small for the price (lunch menu). Particularly the fish and chips at £12.50. Only thing that we felt let down about. Maybe choose from the main menu.

    The food was really nice and having a different option from the usual nut roast option was what drew us here as vegetarians. The only issue was it was a vegan dish and as such we didn't get the buttered vegetables, they were plain vegetables (although still delicious). We also, sadly, didn't get a Yorkshire pudding. The menu doesn't tell you exactly what you get as accompaniments for the vegan dish, it would be nice to have known so we could have maybe asked for the Yorkshire pudding. We enjoyed the meal none the less.

    Was stressful at the start as we got there on time and was told the kitchen closed 15 minutes after we arrived even though we booked a table! If there is a party we should have been told as wouldn’t have booked for that time. The food was lovely but wasn’t happy with how lunch started!

    I am sorry to say but the food was really not good. I paid £16.50 for fish and chips and I had the smallest, overcooked, greasy piece of batter with barely any fish inside, such a small fillet and so overcooked that it was all dry and stuck inside the greasy batter, peas were cold. Just really poor and not value for money at all. there is no need for this at all. I took my mum there for a treat and I was embarrassed. I will never return or recommend. I feel bad writing this as it is not in my nature but I feel like I threw £50 down the drain :(

    This was our first experience of dining at the Burrator Inn - and so our first experience of their Sunday lunch. The food was of a good standard, with an interesting vegetarian choice, which we tried and liked. We also tried the roast pork belly, which was tasty, but felt as if it would benefit from being a higher quality cut. Overall, a positive experience we'd be happy to repeat.

    Went out on Valentine's Day and ate from the 3 course for £32 menu, reasonable choice on all courses and the food itself was excellent. At £32 (plus £6 supplement for Angus Sirloin) I felt it was good value. The staff were friendly and efficient. The only negative on the evening was that we were sat next to a table with 2 young children who refused to sit still and parents who didn't seem inclined to enforce any discipline - reminded us why we go on adult only cruises.

    Staff were welcoming. Table reserved for us however it was the last table en route to the toilets so lots of passing it either side. To be honest the Sunday lunch was pretty average. The beef was chewy in places the roast potatoes are like they had been possibly sitting on a hot plate and were not crispy. The best part of the main was the Yorkshire puds and the cauliflower. The latter we paid additional for. Best part of the meal was the sticky toffee pudding. The overall experience left us feeling it was expensive for what it was.

    Service quick and food excellent. It was not particularly quiet as there was an 80th birthday party in but they were apologetic and it was fine. We had a variety of dishes and I even had a mix of sides, which was no problem. Not cheap but not too expensive either - better food at lower cost than a lot of more supposedly 'upmarket' places. Generally friendly service and good atmosphere. We will be back again and we would all thoroughly recommend giving it a go.

    Busy time of day so took a while to be noticed. Food expensive but good. Service a bit spotty depending on the server. Few things forgotten (apple sauce with roast pork ketchup and mayo with burger). A bit insistent interrupting a conversation when taking orders. Hot drink and small dessert excellent idea.

    We went New Year’s Day and the food was delicious but the service was very slow and had to ask for every thing, Shown to our table asked for high chair as ask for one when booked told none available. Then we’re left there for half an hour so went to bar to get drinks had to ask the waitress if we could order food as I don’t think they would have come to the table, didn’t clear our table and had to call them over again for dessert order and it took over 40 for a child’s Ice cream, The atmosphere was lovely was quiet busy but the waiting staff were either new and didn’t know what they were doing were polite but miserable just need a smile it was a New Year after all.

    Can’t fault the food. Service friendly and good although a little constructive criticism being we would have liked the cutlery reset after the starters without having to ask and also clearly explained that the 2 course menu steak doesn’t come with mushroom and tomato.

    Welcoming waiting staff poor. Took 10 to 15 mins to take our drink order and then she asked where we were sat, even though she seated us earlier. Food was amazing, hot, fresh and delicious. Had the festive menu, pre ordered with a deposit. They forgot to remove the deposit and priced from the normal menu. Overcharged £34 for 2 people. It wasn't even busy. Would love to take guests there for the food, but service is a shambles. Manager is very nice.

    Genuinely disappointing experience. Luke warm, fryer-based food from a menu that reads well but using the lowest possible quality of ingredients and no actual connection to the styles of food suggested At 6:30 on a Friday evening, the bar had loud, drunk, sweary customers which didn’t fit with our young family nor indeed the few other diners
