I ended up travelling to the hotel by a different route than originally planned and didn't arrive till after 11. Nevertheless I was made to feel very welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. I was given a jug of fresh milk to make a cup of tea which always scores highly with me. I cannot abide UHT 'milk'... More

Over the last 8 years or so we have stayed here once a year for an annual short stay to enjoy a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location and great food. There have been a number of landlords and this time we were in the care of number 3. I am afraid the changes of this last set of owners... More

A great place to stay, The rooms are wonderful and the food is fantastic. I cant praise it more highly and will definitely come back. The staff are really friendly and when we left it felt like we were saying goodbye to friends.

We stayed here for one night but wished it could have been more. What a delightful village, and a gem of a local public house. The owners were delightfully welcoming, we were allocated the annex room. Stunningly comfortable and just what was needed after a long drive. Dinner was excellent, a very good selection on the menu, but I was... More

We happened upon the Durant Arms accidentally while looking for another place, and we are so glad we did. The welcome, the food, the friendliness and the whole atmosphere of the place were tremendous. Our dog was also made so welcome. We didn't want to leave to return to the B&B that we were already booked in at for the... More

We've been coming to the Durant Arms on and off for the past 15 years - always a good stopping off point for lunch from the nearby Sharpham Vineyard. Today was our first visit under the new management of Alan and Lesley and we enjoyed it immensely. We were pleased to find the pub is now dog friendly and we... More

4 from Cornworthy ate here last night. All we can say was it was an excellent meal, good wine & all very reasonably priced. We choose the lamb curry, lasagne & duck comfit, but all the menu was tempting. We will all return.

Lovely country pub. Good dining. Breakfast very good with plenty of choice. Room clean and comfortable. The staff, particularly the lady who served breakfast, the barman in the evening and the owners were friendly and efficient. I will not hesitate to book accommodation here again.

Great place to stay and beautiful village. Staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was very good and the service extremely warm and friendly especially the lady who served our breakfast. We stayed here whilst attending a wedding in the village. Pot luck choice but could'nt have been happier. Would definitely recommend.
