If my wife had served me this food, I would think she was angry with me. I would skirt around the issue, sipping my wine, wondering what important date I'd forgotten. My macaroni cheese was as thin as Nicole Richie on lent, there was very little of it, and the only thing mixed about the salad, was not all of... More

cold rooms, the showers ARE NOT 'power showers' as described. Bed was so uncomfortable and the room was cold and stank and was dirty, I slept for an hour if that, The music went on until after 12.30. The staff were rude which included the owners Dave & Mel, The breakfast was disgusting and the so called 'chef' attitude stank... More

The room at the Stowey was good. The bed was comfy, the room had everything I needed and despite being relocated within the first 30 mins because of a mixup, all was well. Likewise, in the morning I was treated to a hearty fry up with the works and a very cheery chef. The problems were all during the night.... More

This pub literally saved us! We lost power to our house so we camped out there to do our written work (We are both teachers). They couldn't do enough for us! We had a nice meal on their new 2 meals for £10. And they were kind enough to offer us a room if we needed. Don't judge on previous... More

This was the first and last time I will be going to the Stowey Arms, had a fish and chip lunch (Friday 21st November) almost inedible and very expensive for a pub lunch only one other cusomer in the bar.The New Inn Alphington is much better quality at half the price.

Dirty, smelly, frightful place. From the bent cutlery and dirty glasses to the bad beer and the inedible food. With so many good places to go in Devon why stop here. To be avoided. This could be improved by being refurbished. Gutting and starting again. Some slightly worn around the edges places have character, a quaintness about them. This is... More

Was staying there for a total of 8 nights in August. At first I only planned to stay for 3 nights, but then extended my stay for 2+3 nights. Felt immediately welcome by the very friendly staff and many locals that frequent the pub where they serve lots of tasty beers at reasonable prices. Can definitely recommend the Stowey Arms... More

I would not recommend this place to anyone. The food is terrible and the roast potatoes were hard. Also they don't welcome you at all. They said homemade food but it weren't it was all makro food. You go to the till to pay for the food and the man who served us his breath was discussing. The price for... More

The room I stayed in was comfortable, the bed was firm but comfortable and the room itself was bright, clean and I was glad to have a walk in shower. The system to get from the bar to my room was a nightmare as it was all done by a keypad at doors and having mobility problems going up and... More

Although local we have not been to the Stowey Arms for some time., but as it was not far away thought it nice to revisit. The past visits have always been good, but this time we were very disappointed. The meals appeared to be micro waved in most cases, and were probably bought in with a price which may appear... More
