The Old Church House Inn at Torbryan was the perfect choice. This ancient inn, nestled in a lush green valley, was built in the 13th Century.
Some of the more modern additions to the decor date back to the time of Henry VIII, including a set of Tudor skittles.
The wooden panelling in the bar is from a Tudor galleon.
You can have a drink near the fire in the bar and chat with the locals or have a meal in one of the five dining rooms.
The food is locally sourced and delicious. We especially enjoyed the fish pie, cottage pie, and steak and ale pie.
Afterwards, we moved to the Snug for coffee and mints. Filled with comfy over-stuffed chairs and a huge inglenook fireplace, you could easily settle in for the afternoon. The friendly staff would make sure you had everything you need.
The Old Church House Inn is one of our favourite Sunday outings. After today, I think it might be one of Dorrie's favourite places, too.
