The Abbey Inn has ample outside seating from which to appreciate the vista of the River Dart, which flows alongside the inn. The pub has gone from strength to strength in recent years, proving a wonderful place to pull up a pew and browse the menus full of home-cooked food.
We began on a delicious high note, my guest enjoying baked Camembert, caramelised red onion and rustic bread, while I sampled tiger prawns in a delectable lemon, chilli and garlic sauce. To follow, we opted for fillet of cod in homemade real ale batter, accompanied by chunky chips and the pub’s own tartare sauce, and wholesome steak and ale pie with fresh vegetables.
Both reflected value for money, costing under £10 each, and were very tasty indeed. To finish, we sat back and enjoyed the lovely view.
Featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, and recipients of Cask Marque accreditation, The Abbey Inn is also a lovely place to recline with a drink in hand before checking into one of the eight bedrooms overlooking the river. With a cosy interior and picnic benches overlooking the river, The Abbey Inn welcomes one and all, rain or shine.
