If you class yourself as a true ‘foodie’ and if you’re asking yourself what to do in Devon today, then heading out to one of our local old school pubs must be on the agenda. We recommend The Rugglestone Inn for one of their delicious Steak and Stilton Pie or The Wild Goose for their Moules Marinières, fries and roasted garlic aioli. If you love a bit of history with old beams and photographs or beautifully kept pub gardens with running streams, then there are so many great foods stops to be made.
