My wife and I stayed here as we were have a Devon Road trip and watching a band just up the road. We called ahead to check on parking and this was sorted out politely. We were greeted fondly and were checked in very quickly and all the necessary key/door times explanations were done. We had the front facing room... More

We drove into Totnes to find somewhere warm to eat & drink,after being turned away by 2 pubs we asked a gentleman in the street... More

The staff are very friendly, the food is nice albeit a limited menu without the specials which looked nice but half had run out the night we ordered. The rooms are small but nicely decorated and clean. The major problem which would prevent me from going again or recommending for all but the heaviest sleeper is the beautiful but not... More

As soon as we walked into the pub we were met with a cheery hello and smile, even though the landlord was busy pulling pints. Straight away we knew we were in an establishment where customers were the most important thing. Great atmosphere. Lovely, friendly staff served us good pub food, with very well priced NZ wine. Delightful landlady too.... More

My partner and I had the August Special Deal, two steaks and a bottle of wine for £30. An absolutely marvellous choice. Steaks were amazing. As ever the ambience was brill, and staff very friendly. Well done the King Bill! :-)

All our steaks come from our local butchers, and I personally sampled all the wine to ensure that it was of the standard that our lovely customers expect, a hard job but someones got to do it!

Staff very helpful and ensured that all was well. Food was good and the accommodation was clean and comfortable. Any hiccups dealt with quickly, politely and efficiently. Main drawback was the dawn chorus of seagulls.

Thanks so much for posting a review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the food and that the accommodation was comfortable. The seagulls are unfortunately a part of our historic riverside town but I am thinking of providing earplugs for the comfort of our guests! Should you pass through Totnes again and stay with us they will be in... More

From start to finish it was satisfying. The warm welcome when you enter to the staff interaction during your stay. My partner and I both stayed for a few beverages and then decided we would stay for a evening meal. I had the BBQ chicken which was sublime! It's a classic but delivered perfect. My other half had a pulled... More

Thank you very much for your glowing review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your meal and have passed your kind comments on to Chef Claire. The pulled pork and chorizo pie proved incredibly popular possibly because it was a bit different. We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review. More

Stayed here one night only, would have liked to stay longer but fully booked. We had room one, I think, which has a lovely curved window overlooking the street, very interesting for people-watching. Room itself very clean and fresh, we loved the calming cream and pale turquoise decoration. Good hot shower and good toiletries provided. Bed was king-sized, with very... More
