Dartmoor Halfway Inn Review

Thursday 28 July 2022


When camping in Devon in May, we stumbled past the Dartmoor Halfway Inn on our way to the campsite. We both commented on what a lovely looking pub it was and resolved to go at some point during our stay. After a gorgeous walk through Stover Country Park, we decided to go to the Dartmoor Halfway Inn for lunch.

It was such a beautiful sunny day that we decided to sit outside. I ordered a refreshing ice cold large white wine, Matt just had a coke (the perks of driving) and we both had a glass of water.

I burn like a crisp, and we had some trouble getting the parasol up but our waitress was more than happy to help! They were also happy to give us the Wifi password too!


For starters, we shared the warm breads, oil and butter. Sorry but how cute are the dinky loaves of bread?! The butter was locally made and perfectly sized.

For mains, I had the catch of the day which quite honestly was the BEST fish and chips that I have ever had. The cider and dill batter on the fish was beautifully light and crispy, the homemade tartare sauce was to die for, the minted peas were perfectly minted and not too much, complimenting the dish wonderfully and the chips were crispy and fluffy. Can you ask for a better dish??? I honestly don't think my words adequately describe how delicious this meal was. 

Matt had a touch of FOMO that he hadn't ordered the fish and chips but his main was equally as delicious. He had the garlic, cumin and coriander chicken drumstick & breast which was served with salad, fries and homemade coleslaw. The seasoning on the chicken was delicious and herby, the fries were crispy and fluffy, like mine, and the homemade slaw was good too. Also, I definitely forgot the name of the dish that Matt had, as they've now changed to their summer menu (fail on my part), so I DM'd the Dartmoor Halfway Inn on IG and they gave me the name - such fabulous customer service!

Overall, an all round fabulous birthday lunch. I'd definitely recommend a visit if you find yourself in the area.
