On Sunday, tuck into a dish of locally sourced meat accompanied by duck fat roasties and vegetables; for pudding why not try the apple and blackberry crumble with cinnamon custard – yum! Bring your pet pooch along; we’re sure that they’d love to stroll around the Inn’s beautiful garden in the summer.

Positioned on Honiton’s High Street is the Lacemakers Café, a quaint, family run spot, built on 400 years of Honiton’s lace-making history.
