I booked 2 twin rooms for my husband and friends about a month in advance and paid for in full through Venere.com. When my husband arrived to collect the keys at the hotel (after their 300+ mile journey) the landlord said he didn't have any record of the bookings and was fully booked. He even said had never even heard... More

Not the best stay I have every had. However, the place looked quite nice and it was nice to lodge in a pub. The staff were very accommodating. Room: Recently decorated, but not very clean. Bathroom had clearly been recently refurbished, but there were 'Curly hairs' in the shower, I am afraid. Carpet was soft, but needed a deep clean.... More

Having paid for 2 nights superior room was surprised by size of room, lack of TV and small on suite with no ventilation! Room could have benefitted from a proper clean. Several stains on the carpet, which had been hovered still was still dirty all around the edges. Bed comfortable but expect to see mattress protectors these days. Complimentary toiletries... More

On a Devon Coast to Coast 3 day cycle tour, we came off track to stay overnight in Gunnislake and were very pleased to have eaten at The Tavistock Arms. At this delightful local we enjoyed Cornish beer and nice wine with fantastic meals of steak and beef stroganoff, with the landlord Bob, whom we were so pleased to have... More

stayed two nights in Gulworthy (closeby) over Easter and ate here both nights, the food was great, large portions (struggled towards the end!) and it was piping hot, which is a rarity these days. The staff were helpful and friendly.

We visited this place on the weekend twice for a few drinks and also dinner and we found the pub to have a lovely cosy atmosphere! The drinks were good and dinner (16oz and 8oz steaks with peppercorn sauce and the best onion rings!) was very good! The landlord Bob is a charming character who made us feel very welcome.... More

The landlord here has run this pub for 20 years...... which is why he doesn't know that being rude to customers is no longer an acceptable pastime. Serving the crappiest selection of overpriced slush, as beer and wine, is no longer acceptable. Warming up last nights pie with oven chips....is outrageous, and standing behind the bar munching on a greasy... More

The landlords attitude is a joke, doesnt care about how his pub or hotel is ran just cares about the money i suppose. Heating and hot water is rationed. DONT STAY... More
