As Devon Restaurant Month comes to an end, last but not least in our round up of the best places to eat in the county is the Five Bells in Clyst.
Owned by the same team as the Jack in the Green, this 16th century thatched inn focuses on real ales, good food and good hospitality.
Located in the small village of Clyst, near Collompton, the pub takes its name from the five bells hanging in the nearby church tower.
Food at the Five Bells is outstanding and the pub has received a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand award two years in a row. Head Chef Ian Webber has Michelin pedigree, having previously worked as Head Chef at Gidleigh Park Hotel.
Ingredients are fresh and local, with a daily changing A La Carte menu, dedicated vegetarian menu, seasonal set lunch and a pudding menu that will make your mouth water, with recommended dessert wines and liqueurs to match.
The pub welcomes guests of all ages and is dog-friendly, with a beer garden perfect for sunny summer days and walking trails nearby to work up an appetite.

Hopefully Devon Restaurant Month has encouraged people to go out and try some new restaurants and fantastic local food. Although the month has now come to an end, there’s no shortage of seasonal produce available throughout the summer, so why not give one of our recommendations a try!
