Stayed for one weekend night while visiting the area. The ground floor has a pub-type bar area and a 'bistro' type restaurant. The rooms are above. The atmosphere was friendly and informal and all the staff we encountered were also friendly and helpful. We had a 'small' double (Room 10) on the first floor. The room was rather small, more...

We had a nice quiet room (two rooms plus a small single room and a bathroom). It was comfortably furnished with a sofa and TV. Beds were comfy. The room was at the back of the hotel and was very quiet. The Breakfast was delicious. The staff were friendly. An all round good experience and we would return.

We were out for a drive and stopped here for a meal, there was a nice choice on the menu and there were specials too, we shared a starter and were pleased we did as it was large, it was presented and lovely and the taste was fantastic, we then had our main dishes and again these were nicely decorated...

Booked Sunday lunch for 20, mix of adults and kids. Staff were really friendly and attentive. Food was lovely, good portions, good value, no long waits and catered for various dietary needs. Kids could play safely in the courtyard while the adults chatted. Will return.

I had steak and ale pie soooooo tasty, my wife also and rest of the enjoyed their meal to. Overall an excellent experience, thanks for... More

Admittedly I hadn't booked the room and rang up at 4pm for a room but £65 for roughly 10ft box room with a pathetic shower is a bit much. I knew something was up when the person showing me the room wanted me to pay first before seeing it, when i had my meal I said I don't think that... More

Whilst we always appreciate & encourage honest & constructive feedback we do feel that you left out a crucial point…you were originally quoted £70 for a double room for single occupancy but as the only room we had left was one of our smaller doubles (which was explained to you on arrival) you were offered, and agreed to the £65...

Stopped here for lunch on way home. Excellent and friendly staff, starters and sweets. Main roast a bit predictable. Advise booking as place was full (Sunday). Would be nice if staff acknowledged diners leaving with a thank you. However a lot of places are guilty of this, once bill has been paid. Would definitely return for the sweets, Eton Mess... More

Lovely warm welcoming hotel with modern clean and cosy rooms. We turned up last minute after our car broke down, with a baby, and were really welcomed despite it being a busy night for staff. Cot bed provided along with friendly smiles!

Halfway between Devon and London this was the perfect location to enjoy a family get-together. I booked it after reading previous reviews and am more than happy with the choice. From the minute our noisy group descended on strangers we were made to feel at home. Although I booked our meal towards the end of a busy lunch time nothing... More
