Good stay in this Inn. The owners made us feel welcome and the rooms were comfortable. The breakfast was available until 9:30 and was reasonably tasty. The owners were flexible in terms of departure which was a great help.

3 of us had supper here. Basic but adequate food, fairly priced and written on handmade menu which was quite novel! Accommodating staff but layout of pub was a bit odd. Found out there was a garden at the back which was quite busy but the actual pub itself was very quiet. Put off a little by smell of stale... More

I stayed here with my daughter, while we were visiting the area. Absolutely loved it! Fabulous old building, spotless rooms, great breakfast. Close to sea, about 20/30 mins away, beautiful countryside. The owners could not be nicer...and the two dogs Bob and Paddy were a delight. Each morning Chris would make us what we wanted for breakfast, we just arranged... More

Stayed here 2 nights but would not do again. Corridors smelled strongly of damp and stale beer. Room furnished that even a charity shop would not accept. Breakfast was disappointing - no cereal, no fruit juice, poor quality cooked breakfast. For the money, a huge disappointment and not worth what they are charging. Certainly will not return!

We didnt stay here but ate here twice while staying elsewhere in the area. Friendly people, nice inn with character and history. We tried the mixed grill, chicken and bacon pie and the scampi. We both enjoyed our meals and would recommend a visit. Good house wine too.

Shebbear is a lovely village with lots of interesting tales of ghosts and the history of the Devil's stone. We visited the Devil's Stone Inn for a bite to eat. We were warned that there would be a half hour wait. This was a fine as about 30 people arrived at the same time. 50 minutes later I watched my... More

Came to Shebbear to watch schoolboy rugby then needed lunch and a pint. This is a lovely old pub with a lot of character, a bit of romantic but implausible ghost history and a great ambience brought on by the open log fires, flagstones, real beams and entirely welcoming feel. Well kept ales and good basic pub food. Apparently an... More

Devil's Stone Inn, Shebbear is reputed to be one of Devon's most haunted Inns. It's full of character, including exposed beams, open fires and flagstone floors. The real ales are superbly presented, decent wine list and a traditional menu of home cooked food from local produce. This is not a gastro pub, just an old-fashioned menu with a particularly excellent... More
