The Ordulph Arms and The Terrace Restaurant, Tavistock

Kevin and Jane the new owners of The Ordulph Arms and The Terrace Restaurant in Tavistock kindly invited Julian and I along to dine at The Terrace and sample the new menu.

Upon arrival we went for a pre-dinner drink downstairs in The Ordulph to take a nosey at the recent changes.  The re-fit to the bar area had literally just been completed and Kevin was very enthusiastic about the changes.

The bar has a music theme and Kevin and Jane have also installed a great new sound system.  If you manage to throw the hat on the horn of the bull – Kevin will make you an honorary ‘Horny Club’ member which I believe entitles you to a free drink at the bar (don’t quote me on that though!)

Ladies toilets at The Ordulph Arms, Tavistock
For locals that remember, be rest assured the ladies toilets have also had a refresh and now even have chandeliers!  But I digress – we were there for the food at The Terrace– so let’s wander upstairs ….

Meet Jade, the restaurant manager who was waiting for us in the bar area upstairs.  She greeted us warmly and showed us to our seats which were by a window that had a lovely breeze coming through, much appreciated as it was a warm and muggy evening.  (Yes we do have them in Dartmoor sometimes!)

Shiraz at The Terrace Restaurant, Tavistock
This is always a good start to any meal in my books – a nice full-bodied Shiraz (at a reasonable price £14.50) to enjoy whilst we perused the menu.   Chef Lewis is a local lad who wants the menu to incorporate all that Tavistock and the local area has to offer, from its locally sourced meat to its fresh produce.  Decisions, decisions ….   

Roast Chicken breast at The Terrace Restaurant, Tavistock
We skipped the starter as we both struggle with a 3 course meal and we wanted to save room for a desert.  For the main I eventually decided on the Roast chicken breast, new potatoes, broad beans, peas, sweetcorn and white wine cream.  The chicken was very succulent and tasty and the portion size just about right.  This dish was £12.

Griddled Rump of Lamb at The Terrace Restaurant, Tavistock
Julian opted for the Griddled Rump of Lamb, Roast Vegetables, Mint & Pink Peppercorn dressing again at £12.  It didn’t hang around on the plate for long, which is testament to how much Julian enjoyed it! 

Sticky Toffee Pudding at The Terrace, Tavistock
My dessert was a Sticky toffee pudding, toffee sauce and honeycomb ice cream – one word – YUM!  

Tiramisu at The Terrace Restaurant, Tavistock
Julian always says he doesn’t have a sweet tooth, so I was slightly surprised when he opted for the Tiramisu, hazelnut and chocolate biscotti dessert, it didn’t touch the sides!  The total cost of the meal was £49.50.  

Al-fresco dining at The Terrace Restaurant, Tavistock
The Terrace also has outdoor seating for al fresco dining on sunny days.  Everything is cooked fresh and they offer one menu for the bar and the Terrace – with a more extensive choice in The Terrace.  The restaurant is open five days a week from Wednesday to Sunday, including lunches on Sunday.  Dogs are always welcome in the bar and restaurant too.

 Live Music at The Ordulph Arms, Tavistock

They hold regular events at both the Terrace and Ordulph – the next dates for your diary are a range of Live Music nights being hosted in the bar.

Thanks Kevin, Jane, Lewis and Jade for a very enjoyable evening
