Chose venue as we were meeting up with another couple also driving 3 hrs to meet us. Only downside is we called in at 2.20 on a very wet and cold day, and was told by the barman 'Check-in is 3.30', so we wandered to another pub to pass the time, a more friendly reception would have been appreciated.

Lovely friendly pub, good atmosphere, nice tasty pub food, reasonably priced. Recommend the burger, it's really good. Nice range of beers. Very interesting paintings / caricatures on the walls, inside and out, done by a local artist.

A St Austell pub, with hotel rooms upstairs, serving excellent beer, Proper Job was exactly that! An appealing menu with some special dishes made using local produce made us return again the following evening tempted by offerings such as Exeter stew with dumplings, Exmoor pie and a list of home made soups. Very good home cooked food at reasonable prices.... More

Called in for a drink in the afternoon and had a nice real ale pint, very interesting paintings on the walls both inside and out, done by a local man but with a tragic story attached (ask tristan for the details). We decided to return for our evening meal, which was fine, reasonably priced and good quality, my burger was... More

This hotel/pub is just a couple of hundred yards off the main street in Lynton. What it lacks in decor and surroundings it makes up for in the food and the staff. The barman was friendly and amusing and the food (we had fish and chips, cottage pie and a salad) were very tasty and a very reasonable price. The... More

We ate here on a Saturday night after really fancying a pub meal with no frills and a pint. We got exactly what we were looking for, both being vegetarian it was a choice between veggie burger or Indian style curry. My partner had the vegetable burger with chips, onion rings and salad and liked it, the burger was seemingly... More

A lovely quirky pub/Hotel. The Hotel is old but our room was very comfortable and clean including a continental breakfast. We were a bit worried that it would be noisy as the rooms were over a pub but we did not hear any noise. Very quiet area. Even had tea making facilities, toiletries and a TV. We had a twin... More

Not a hotel, but a great pub with excellent rooms. Despite travelling solo, I was given the best available room - a suite with a very comfortable 4-poster bed, another room with single bed and a spotless modern bathroom with proper bath and separate large shower cubicle. The food is superb. The bar staff and locals are very friendly, which... More
