4 of us went. The meals were excellent if anything a little on the large side as we had starters and found our main meals hard to get through

Located near beautiful Brixham, close to Berry Head Nature Reserve and just a short walk from the South West Coast Path, The Weary Ploughman Inn is a wonderful spot for a satisfying meal.

As well as favourite pub classics, the bar menu offers gourmet homemade pizzas, while the à la carte menu features sophisticated, seasonally changing dishes, all freshly prepared. A great Sunday lunch menu is also available, including a range of late brunch options besides the traditional roast. The ingredients are locally sourced where possible, with fish purchased daily from the local Brixham market. Start with the likes of seared scallops with black pudding, followed by seared sea bass fillet with sautéed chorizo. From the dessert menu, enjoy poached rhubarb with ginger panna cotta, or chocolate and raspberry tart with Devon clotted cream.

Many of the drinks are also from Devon, with local real ales, wines, and gins, as well as Luscombe and Frobisher adult soft drinks.

The Weary Ploughman Inn sits next to Churston Rail Station, an 8-minute drive from Brixham.

    We're staying here as well and so far it's been great. We've eaten here previously many times and it's always been good. The Hunter's Chicken last night was the best ever, succulent, perfectly cooked, homemade sauce, well presented and beautiful chips. Pizza was also amazing and the starter of a Crispy Hens Egg. Service good and friendly. Highly recommended. A member of staff that stood out was Kris - an asset to the hotel.

    Disappointing. Fries covered in excess oil/fat. Boiled potatoes delivered after rest of course very dry
    Suggest fries put in kitchen paper before serving and boiled served with butter. Because very few customers restaurant quite chilly

    The pizzas were amazing, unusual toppings, soooo tasty :-)
    The staff were all lovely, friendly and very attentive

    The steaks were good as were the duck main courses. The cheese dessert was very good value and the apple crumble was tasty. The Yarde farm ice creams were lovely. Service was attentive.
    The only downside was that the restaurant area was quite cold even with it being quite busy. Glad I had a cardigan as well as a long sleeved top.
