Although staff were very welcoming there were a few areas that could be better. The room was pleasantly decorated but behind the en-suite door there was considerable dust bunnies, Also the entrance hall and stairs up to the rooms could have done with a good hoover and were a bit smelly. The evening menu was restricted to burghers, sausages, mixed... More

Interesting place... Nice welcoming hosts. Accommodation is above a traditional village pub that's quite noisy and the rooms suffer slightly from juke box noise and smokers chatter outside the front. Beds were clean but bathroom was a tad tired. Breakfast ensured that I needed a repeat cholesterol test very soon.

Stayed here last minute due to a relative being taken ill in Exeter. Exminster is a lovely village just 10mins from the city and 15mins from the amazing beaches at Dawlish Warren & Teignmouth. Really warm welcome and extremely friendly landlord & landlady Dave & Mel. Family room absolutely perfect for our 6 & 4 year olds with separate area... More

What a disaster. A scruffy pub, I ordered lunch and a beer. The beer was foul, the bottom of a barrel that must have been on for months. When I came to pay for the food the pub's card machine was not working. 'It's been like that since last night' said the landlady helpfully. I left my beer - bought... More

I've stayed at the stowey a few times now an i must say our last stay was far far from what it used to be. The food menu is now poor and over priced the glasses in the bar are filthy and the cleanliness of the rooms has deteriorated so much so that our toilet wasn't even flushed before we... More

Decided to find a decent Sunday lunch locally so called here. Friendly and welcoming lady. Lunch was a great price at £5.95 and content was good, although could have been a tad hotter. Meat was cooked just right (pork & beef), with roast potatoes, yorkshire and a good selection of veg. It was help yourself so you could choose your... More

Visited recently with family all of us had food. Food was ok service was very good tho! All of us agreed that while the food was not bad as such for the price it could be much better. They do 2 meals for £10 but we all opted to go for something on the regular menu. The meals worked out... More

Sorry but we did not have a good stay here. We were not in a clean and comfy room. The second day we returned to find the room had not been serviced and the tea and coffee etc. had not been replenished. We queried this and were told that it was only serviced every two days! I have never known... More
