Review on The Dartmoor Union Inn

A one-time cider press and village union room, this sixteenth-century hostelry is reaping the benefits of a major revamp, and is now owned by the team from South Sands Boutique Hotel & Beachside Restaurant Salcombe. It has been stylishly and sympathetically reborn without sacrificing any of its local character - even though the interior is now a Country Living mix of deep leather sofas, piles of logs and wine racks.

Local produce is the kitchen's trademark and it shows in an eclectic range of dishes including, perhaps, skillet-roasted mussels with thyme and ginger, char-grilled loin of pork with black pudding mash or Devon Ruby sirloin with bιarnaise sauce. To finish, there are West Country cheeses with homemade chutney, as well as desserts such as caramelised banana Tatin with clotted cream.

To top it all, the Dartmoor Union also has its own working microbrewery producing two ales, which are served in the bar alongside beers from other independent Devon breweries. The wide-ranging wine list is also well worth exploring.

The Dartmoor Union Inn is also featured in: Michelin Guide, AA Guide

    I ordered a chilli when served it resembled a dish of thin soup no accompaniments the only good part was the basket of fries, it was obviously a micro wave job not heated through fully. When we arrived we had to wait for a member of staff to return from a nursery run no one in attendance .The table was tacky needed a good wipe off. One friend had bacon and cheese bap poor quality bacon, processed cheese. other friend had ham egg and chips the ham thin sandwich ham not served nicely all in all a overpriced poor quality lunch have had better in other Pubs that don't profess to be a Gastro Pub I wasn't charged for the chilli not that I intended to pay. My Friends and I can remember when one had to book days in advance for a place to dine at The Dartmoor Union, sadly we will never return or indeed recommend this establishment to anyone.

    Friendly, welcoming staff, superbly cooked food, and ample portions.
    Very quiet, so hope that this place starts to get the support it well deserves. Please go there and see for yourself just how good this inn is!
