A fairly standard pub with decor locked into the 70s. Reasonable lunch menu, including some gluten-free. The curry 'Specials' sounded interesting. Not the warmest of welcomes as we entered but that improved slightly. Very limited parking though. Outside seating area by a stream.

The Fisherman's Rest is great value for money. The food we had is better than most places I have eaten in. I loved the Hazy cider and you could not wish for a warmer welcome. I wish this establishment was close to where I live.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Burgh Island. The food was delicious and the service friendly and efficient. We'd definitely go again if we're in the area.
