Must be the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Broken bed in first room we looked at, next room had dirty towels in the bath, arranged for breakfast for 9am but hotel was deserted, no one there at all .We had to leave at 9-30 without breakfast and unable to complain to anybody. When we contacted the hotel we... More

Booked a twin room whilst visiting relatives nearby. Had misgivings when we read review on Trip Advisor, but decided if so much money had been spent on refurbishments it probably was much improved. How wrong we were. The room we were given looked OK at first glance, but when we opened the cupboard they called a bathroom, we couldn't believe... More

We had booked 3 nights on line - what a mistake! On arrival the 1st room we were shown to the shower was filthy and bins unemptied. 2nd room the toilet seat was broken. 3rd room in the annex was a large family room but smelt musty and dank (stale smoke?) and the carpet needed a thorough clean. Bathroom soap... More

We had a lovely meal here, starter and main course. The staff were attentive but not overly so, they didn't leave too long between courses. My only slight criticism was that my beef and ale pie was slightly too salty for my tastes but everything else was cooked well. We would come again

Despite its claim, this place is without charisma, is cold and uninviting and appears to have no structural management. Service is terrible with staff more content to play with their mobile phones or play pool! The food was awful and that after a wait of nearly 3/4' s of an hour. Previous reviews say it all and this managements move... More

We arrived at Sparkford Inn with a party of 10, we had to book 2 weeks in advance as it was so busy, fantastic we thought we was in for a lovely meal....oh how wrong we was! The exterior is good that's as far as it goes! It took 20 minutes to be asked our name and to be seated... More

Arrived with my pregnant wife just a few days ago. Walked into the room and it was an absolute mess. Toilet was not flushed. Half eaten pot noodle on the side. The bins were full, The bedding was clearly the same as had been used by a previous incumbent. No shower curtain, no remote for the television, no milk for... More

Booked our accommodation through late rooms and arrived at the check in time we had specified. The pub looked lovely from the outside however we could not get in. Eventually found a very scruffy young man at one of the rear entrances who agreed to let us in although this was clearly an inconvenience to him. He had our reservation... More

We visited this Pub in February which was now under new ownership with our coach party. Every year we stop off for Sunday lunch on our way to Torquay this year was a nightmare our food was not only cold but slopped onto the plate so that you could not disinguish one vegetable from another. The staff were rude and... More

"Timfla" and "barry m" you really must try harder when writing a bogus review, particularly your spelling. Come on moderators, surely you can spot a homemade review? Still, at least the pub is open unlike others recently blessed.
