Simple food done well...

British Kitchen Garden food, true to the micro seasons and with a real focus on simple and fresh flavours.

With 3 walled gardens at THE PIG-at Combe, we are spoilt for fresh pickings and zero-mile produce to line our menus. On top of this, we work with the best suppliers Devon has to offer, so we can be 100% sure of the provenance of our ingredients. We are lucky to have the coast in casting distance and miles of Devonshire countryside, which means our menu is brimming with local fish, locally reared meats and infamous Devonshire cheeses.

Our dishes change by the day depending on what the forager supplies and what our kitchen garden team deems to be in perfect condition.

Long Lazy Lunches

Initially we will be operating with a reduced number of tables in our restaurants to adhere to physical distancing guidelines, so we have opened up bookings throughout the afternoon so that you can enjoy long lazy summer lunches - our favourite kind!

Tables are now available to book everyday from midday until 4pm, so you can really settle in with a few bottles of rosé or bring the kids down for an early evening feast - we just advise you book in advance.
