If it's a warm welcome and a hearty meal you're after then The Balfour Arms in Sidmouth is the place for you.

The predominantly British menu includes a wide selection of pub classics, and the specials board is updated daily according to the availability of local ingredients. Sitting comfortably in the recently refurbished restaurant, we tucked into our starters and sipped a pint of real ale from the wide selection available at the bar. The filo wrapped prawns with sweet chilli sauce were wonderfully light, while my companion's confit duck leg was beautifully tender with crispy skin, and finished with a rich plum sauce. These culinary delights were followed by free-range pork shank, and West Country game pie, both of which were utterly delicious. The slow-cooked pork fell right off the bone and was served with creamy mustard mash and tangy cider gravy. My companion's pie was packed with locally sourced rabbit, venison and pheasant cooked in a rich Port and redcurrant gravy, and topped with a crumbly suet pastry.

Make sure you save room for dessert, as you won't want to miss out on one of The Balfour's scrumptious homemade treats. The hot chocolate fudge cake is highly recommended, as is the apple fritter, which was pleasingly served with lashings of salted caramel sauce
