The Church House Inn
South Devon has a plethora of quaint pubs and villages, and Rattery near South Brent is fortunate enough to be the home to The Church House Inn. See the hanging floral baskets and carriage wheels mounted on cream-coloured walls and you’ll be drawn to this local pub, which has a history dating back as far as 1028 AD. The Church House Inn has locals and visitors alike raving about the top-notch food, fine selection of ale and wine, friendly service and bags of charm.
The experienced kitchen team produces exceptional seasonal menus that retain much-loved dishes and put local produce to good use. The team works its magic to create starters such as ham hock terrine, potted local crab, and parsnip and pear soup. Perhaps follow with slow-roasted free-range pork belly, smoked haddock and salmon fish pie, or Creedy Carver duck breast. Whether you fancy a full-blown three-course meal, nibbles or a light lunch, there is something for everyone. Visit for the hugely popular Sunday lunch, with all the trimmings, for an end-of-week treat.
Once you’ve cleared your plate, pull up a seat near the open fire – you might even catch sight of the alleged resident ghost. However, spooky this pub is not – it is a simply charming, relaxing place you’ll want to return to again and again.
