Booked last minute as the world and his wife filled the Devon coast, found a beautiful pub for the evening sitting on the river dart with lots of outside seating to enjoy a great bottle of wine by the waters edge before heading inside to our little candle lit table to enjoy huge rack of ribs with all the trimmings!...

The location is stunning. Unfortunately the food was very poor, we eat out on a regular basis, so where disappointed on this occasion. We had garlic mushrooms for a starter, when it came the mushrooms where just laid on top of a bagette, not very inventive. I had stir fry duck, it wasnt what I thought it would be when... More

Stayed here recently and had real mixed feelings about it. Our welcome wasn't the best as the pub was quite busy and we were told we had to order food right away. We just wanted a drink and to relax after a long drive, without being pressured to order at 6.45pm. However, we did end up ordering around 7.30pm and... More

We stayed here 2 nights, and really loved the place. We ate in the pub both nights (fish & chips one night, home made pie the next, both good). We really enjoyed the friendliness and good service. We had been looking for accommodation in or near Dartmouth, booked the last available room (a twin) at short notice, and were very... More

This is a very pretty pub in a very pretty location overlooking the river. When we visited there were six adults and three kids, all catered for brilliantly. There is a little gated play area outside for the little ones to play safely which was great and plenty of highchairs dotted about. The food was lovely and the ice cream... More

I found this place a couple of years ago and loved it from day 1. The staff are friendly and happy to help, the food is amazing and the situation is idyllic. It is easily my favourite place in devon. I only wish I could spend more time in this beautiful place.

This is the first time my daughter and I have ever stayed away together, so we were very excited about going for a weekend. We looked at all the reviews beforehand of many places in the area. We thought that we found a really nice place to get away. The room was very nicely decorated and clean. Couldn't fault the... More

We are pleased to note that you enjoyed your room, but obviously fell short on your expectations when it came to our selection of food. The breakfast menu has ten different options, be it a full English, or vegetarian option. The fruit salad is made fresh everyday and as the bowl empties, it is refilled to ensure its freshness. I...

Very friendly inn, lovely staff, good honest food and drink. Beautiful location. the bedrooms as plain but adequate, maybe a new mattress is needed in room 6, as it is a touch soft. We took our two dogs, and they were warmly welcomed as well. We will be back.

We stayed here for a couple of nights recently. Every member of staff was friendly and cheerful from the moment we arrived until we left. Breakfast was great and very filling. Both breakfast and dinner service was quick. Our room was clean and tidy, and I loved that there wasn't a surcharge for our dogs. The only downside was the... More
