Providing an abundance of real ale, local cider and good conversation, as well as delicious homemade food using the best local, seasonal produce available, this is a pub you’ll want to return to again and again. The café serves proper coffees, teas, cakes and pastries and the restaurant serves lunchtime and evening meals. The varied specials might include local game when in season, fresh seafood, and unique vegetarian dishes. The Sunday roasts are renowned in the district. Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the bar, and children are catered for too with dishes homemade to the same high quality as on the main menu. In fine weather, you might like to sit in the garden under the pretty overhanging wisteria, and if you’re just passing through, or simply too tired to go home, there are several well-appointed guest rooms to choose from. The Thorverton Arms is a great pub offering great value for money.
