Excellent food and service. Generous portions of meat and delicious gravy. Good value at around £10. Empty places all round! A gorgeous view over the River Dart and plenty of room in the car park. This the second time our family has been here and had excellent food. Lovely outdoor area to sit and a quaint interior with lots of... More

These people want you to enjoy yourself. Warmly welcoming, it's not haute cuisine, just very generous servings of all sorts of good pub food with a winning smile. Stay there and get an equally good breakfast and they're still smiling. Would we go there again.....absolutely

Stayed 1 night in April, in room with shower. Lovely modern bathroom and nice décor, liked the prints very much. Only booked one night but unwell and had room for the day while I waited for my coach. Comfortable, pleasant room to chill in and watch TV. Very peaceful, quiet location, although over pub and outside seating. . 5 minutes... More

We stayed here for three nights last week, we had room two for 2 nights which was a great room, the view wasn't, good but the room and the bathroom were very nice . We had to change to room three for the final night and although the view was good preferred the first room. But would recommend.

Stayed one night and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fixtures and fittings in the room especially the bathroom 4* Standard. Great location next to the river and convenient for the town.

This is probably one of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed in, actually. Well decorated, the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was great--huge tub, everything was very white and spotlessly clean. Possibly a bit on the small side for some, but we really liked it. The breakfast was also VERY good (although I thought it was included in the... More

The staff were all very friendly & took our order quickly. The food was lovely, I had pork in mustard & my friend had salmon encroute which... More

Lovely riverside location, very attentive & friendly staff and lots of extra veg! The toad in the hole (four sausages) went down well with one friend who has a substantial appetite. My wife chose plaice goujons from the starters menu. The accompanying 'salad' was just some chopped iceberg lettuce - rather unimaginative we thought. Our other friend and I tried... More

Stayed with a friend and it has to have the most interesting plumbing I have yet experienced in a Hotel. The bathroom was huge and the bedroom very spacious. Lack of drawer space but for a short break this is not an issue. The only thing I would recommend is check for certainty how much you will be charged as... More
