If you are still hesitating as there's not a big number of review yet, don't!

It's your typical old school English pub with original décor and historical smell.

I had the days special - duck breast and my boyfriend had rib eye with peppercorn sauce.

The duck was absolutely amazing! Probably one of the best I have ever had! Although the presentation might be slightly messy at first sight, it was very well cooked! With nice mix of vegetables and sauce, it created a good balance of texture and flavours in mouth. The generous portion made it even better!

The rib eye was very very good too. Came with vegetables and nice chunky chips. But I enjoyed my duck so much that I didn't take a picture of it.

The service was fantastic too. The boy was very polite and attended to our table promptly.

Overall, definitely worth a visit and give their food a try!

We have just returned from our fourth visit to Buckland Monachorum and each time we visit, we eat at the Drake Manor rather more often than is good for our waistlines! Stand out dishes from our latest trip include an excellent hake dish and a starter of mussels in a taxi green curry sauce, both from the specials board, chicken and chorizo pie, Cajun chicken breast with sweet potato fries and epic beer batter fish and chips. Lemon posset and sticky toffee pudding were our favourites from the pudding menu, but everything we ate was good.

The wine list looks good, but we can't get decent draught cider where we live, so I stuck to that, with Rosie's Pig becoming a favourite. My husband doesn't stray from the local Jail Ale.

The staff are always friendly and accommodating. The Drake Manor is a little gem.

Friday evening meal for 5. 2 steaks, 1 chicken, 1 scampi and 1 fish and chips. All fantastic, not a scrap left. Great service too in a warm and cozy environment with great beer and nice wine. Definitely be back.
