Nice Clean average size room, very dog friendly, can take your dog in the bar to eat etc. Handy field next door to do a short walk. Owners very accommodating and friendly. Excellent menu, with homemade vegan and vegetarian options. Free Wi-Fi works well in the bar area, but not in the bedrooms and not a good phone signal. Walls... More

Called in on the off chance as going past. Really good food, friendly service. Would happily return. Atmosphere was very good, food freshly cooked and really tasty. Not the cheapest but not ridiculous.

The Mary Tavy Inn is our local pub and we are always made to feel welcome. The standard of service is friendly and genuine. Menu choice is good with generous portions. We would highly recommend this pub to anyone reading this review.

When we booked we thought the room rate was a little high but there was no extra charge for our dog and you get a self-contained "cottage" just a few paces from the back door of the Inn itself. Warm and comfortable, big bed, TV and radio alarm. Breakfast was quality, better than we've experienced in much pricier hotels. Jill... More

Booked this last minute when the weather forecast promised sunshine and were delighted to discover a first rate base for Dartmoor visiting. We stayed in Cox Tor...smallish room, but well converted from old outbuildings, and very well presented, and with an extremely comfortable kingsize bed. Cosy public bar and good restaurant were very welcome after a day's walking and breakfast... More

We arrived in this remote, location just as darkness was falling. We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown our cottage 'The Old Smithy'. Good sized room, with decent sized en-suite & power shower! The tea & coffee making facilities were generous, with enough milks and tea bags to last us (we like our tea!!) We decided to eat... More

This amazing pub restaurant combines cosiness with well presented, good food with more formal or casual surroundings as you wish depending on which side of the cleverly divided premises you choose to sit, great hosts and staff and charming comfortable accommodation. Cannot fault it.
