Review on The Treby Arms
The Treby Arms is a delightful country pub at the hub of the small village of Sparkwell that can trace its history back to 1855, when it was built as a place for Isambard Kingdom Brunel's workforce to relax, whilst constructing the Royal Albert train bridge that now connects Plymouth to Cornwall. The restaurant was opened in May 2011 by husband and wife team Anton and Clare Piotrowski after a sympathetic renovation transformed the inn, whilst retaining much of the original character of the building.
It still plays the part of a local watering hole serving its local community, although it has many attractions, as well as earning numerous awards including Devon Dining Pub of the Year 2013, two prestigious AA rosettes and a coveted Michelin star in the 2015 edition of the Guide.
The kitchen maintains a strong commitment to the sourcing of local ingredients including sustainable seafood, and works closely with local suppliers to ensure the very best of fresh seasonal produce. Accomplished cooking is the order of the day with a menu that changes frequently according to local supplies, kicking off with a starter of oat crusted foie gras, glazed fig with a Muscat and dried grape jelly or maybe Guinness and smoked bacon mussels, smoked bacon foam and malt vinegar crumble. Main courses take in John Dory fillet, paprika butter, whitebait and asparagus or for carnivores there's Squab pigeon, parsley root puree, game fritter, wild mushrooms and beetroot. Desserts are picture pretty assemblages such as apple parfait, caramelised apple, apple sorbet oat crumble and berry candyfloss or chocolate caramel, digestive biscuit, banana puree and banana parfait yuzu foam.
The Treby Arms has a carefully compiled wine list to match the food as well as locally brewed ales such as Tribute, Jail Ale & Trelawny.
