Our talented kitchen team have in recent months been offering a fantastic Tasting Menu on Saturday nights. This gives our customers a chance to sample a range of the 2 AA Rosette seasonal food we offer in one sitting with an optional wine pairing with each dish. This has been well recieved with great feedback – be sure to give it a try on your next visit.


If you are looking for challenging but definitely achievable walks on Dartmoor then the Audiowalks series are definitely worth a try. The Haytor Audiowalk takes in Haytor, Houndtor and the beautiful surroundings in between. The walks come complete with downloadable PDF map and Audiofile. Definitely worth a try!
