A selection of our favourite pubs and restaurants, all within half an hour of our house.
Excellent fine dining restaurant. The best prices for lunch around - amazingly, they charge £12 for a 3-course set lunch menu! Lovely historic building.

Pub with excellent restaurant in a lovely conservatory overlooking the city of Plymouth in the distance. Very good food - I would describe it as high end pub food, e.g. beautifully presented burgers and posh fish and chips, or your usual meat and fish dishes.

Nice pub with bar and restaurant area. The bar area serves simple traditional snacks such as pork pies. The restaurant area serves full meals. The Sunday roast is particularly good.

Good value local pub with a friendly atmosphere and weekly pub quiz. The food is quite basic but it very well priced, and children eat free with full-priced adult meals.

A historic pub in a lovely old building. While the food is better than the Modbury Inn, it's still quite basic, serving classic pub grub. The pub has a real community and a nice garden - perfect for lunchtime. In the evening, it's more of a locals pub and is popular for drinking.

Really nice restaurant-style pub with good quality food. It overlooks the river and has excellent views, including outdoor seating. Be careful of the car park, which is tidal! There's another car park a couple of minutes up the road next to the playground.

A unique fish restaurant where you sit in your own private pod and enjoy the spectacular coastal views. We like to park at South Milton Sands car park and walk the mile or so along the coast path to the Lobster Pod, then have lunch before walking back. Enjoy!

A lovely local down with plenty of history and a beautiful position by the river. Plenty of nice restaurants, a lovely shopping street, big playground, and leisure centre with gy, and swimming pool. We particularly recommend Waterborne SUP, a paddleboarding centre in Kingsbridge.

An excellent day out for everyone in the family. The walk to the top of the waterfall is just the right length for children of most ages, and there's plenty to keep them entertained. There are also picturesque lakes, and playgrounds at the start and end of the walk up the waterfall. We like to have lunch in the cafe afterwards.
