Reasons for trip

This pub/restaurant is off the beaten track, but driving down narrow twisting lanes is well worth the efffort. Coombe Cellars is situated on the very edge of the estuary of the River Teign midway between Newton Abbot and Teignmouth. The setting, especially at high tide when the sun is shining, is nothing short of idyllic. Perfect for a lazy Sunday lunch!

My wife and I chose this restaurant as the venue for my birthday celebration. I had joined their mailing list and was sent a £10 discount voucher to use on a meal for two. Further, they sent me an email offering a free bottle of champagne as a birthday present. I am pleased to say that, unlike some establishments, they honoured both offers!

The food was delightful. My wife chose a local crab and crayfish pot to start, and as a fish afficionado thought it was delicious. My black pudding potato cake was also quite excellent, although I must add that as far as black puddings are concerned, nothing quite matches the Stornaway brand we had in Scotland. Our main courses were pork belly with seared scallops, and a venison steak, cooked exactly to my liking and served interestingly with sweet potato, poached pear and forest fruits. We enjoyed both immensely. My wife couldn’t manage a dessert but my sweet tooth means I will always try something – in this case an English custard tart with rhubarb compote. Delightful!

I’d thoroughly recommend both the food and the setting for any occasion. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
