Masterchef winner

Since February 2014, The Springer Spaniel has been owned and run by one of the winners of Masterchef 2012 - Anton Piotrowski. The pub still has the same dog-friendly ambience but the food is even better!

The Springer Spaniel

Traditional pub in a village location - really easy to get to (just off A30). Have only had lunch here but great menu choice and friendly staff. Oh and (as you would expect) they love dogs so long as there is an owner on the end of a lead!

Posh nosh in a rural pub

Good locally sourced meat and fish, seasonal vegetables and puddings to savour - The Springer Spaniel is great for lunch or dinner. A little expensive but good value - the portions are on the large side!

Nearest beach

Hoodny Cove (15 miles)

This sandy cove is quite sheltered and offers a good safe place to swim. There are also great places to snorkel at high tide.

Nearest walk

This walk is a nine and a half mile section (5) of the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail which starts from the Milton Abbot village post office and takes you through valleys and over hills with stunning views of Bodmin Moor.

Launceston is an upbeat town with a fascinating history and good range of shops. I recommend the castle, if you don't mind heights!

Good rainy day fun

The best climbing wall in the SouthWest. There is also a giant boulder for free climbing. Great for children and adults alike - and they make good coffee too!

Traditional pub food in a lovely setting

Good traditional pub food, open fires, one side carpeted , the other with old slate floors so it's OK to have muddy boots and dogs. On the Devon side of the Tamar just next to the ancient Horsebridge.

A great traditional pub with a lovely friendly atmosphere and good food. Try the lamb shank if they've got it - it's delicious!

Mrs Pascoe May 2011

Very traditional but welcoming pub - good home cooked food and a nice open fire. Very atomospheric and popular with the locals - a beautiful setting that would be hard to beat. You must try the beer from the pub's own micro-brewery if you visit.

Endsleigh Hotel and Gardens (2 ¼ miles)

Dine on exquisite traditional English food in the former home of the Duke of Bedford. The gardens are open to the public.

Expensive but worth it!

Wonderful setting, beautiful house. It's expensive luxury for dinner but afternoon tea is well worth it. Be sure to book ahead.

Straight out of Thomas the Tank Engine, this is a fun-filled excursion whatever the weather. Learn about the little locomotives, or just sit back and enjoy ride.

Mrs Jewell September 2015

A quirky little train journey! We were glamping at Western Meadows (near New Mill Farm Park) and caught the quaint little steam train from the Farm Park into the town of Launceston for a look around. The children loved the 2 mile journey through countryside, it really did feel like we were stepping back in time.
