Just come back from a lunch with friends at the Thelbridge Cross Inn. Good menu choice, delicious food, friendly and efficient service and very pleasant diningroom with comfortable chairs! Will definitely be returning having found this inn again after many years - we didn't realise what we had been missing.

This is quite an isolated pub/hotel about 5 miles from the village of Witheridge. The rooms were fine (nothing fancy), breakfast was good, food in the evening was quite average, staff were pleasant enough. The place was very quiet when I was there - definitely lacked atmosphere.

Thanks for your review! It's a shame to hear that there was a lack of atmosphere when you visited. We would love to be buzzing with customers all the time, but unfortunately in an isolated rural location like this, in a struggling pub industry, we do, I'm sad to say, have occasional quiet nights, although I would hope that our...

Arrived in cold damp weather late afternoon. How lovely! Small clean room with lovely bed and tea/coffee provided. The pub was so friendly and busy, the food was excellent and the staff excelled. We didn't stop to look at views the next morning because of rain but we will return to see them. It was the ideal place for a... More

If I need I will complain, TV or the internet did not work. Someone came straight away, Duh, I was not using the TV correctly and the wifi was sorted very quickly. We loved this inn, the room was great as were the staff and the meals, go there you will not be disapointed. The regular rooms are quite small,... More

We stopped over with a motorhome. The five pounds parking charge is refunded on a meal at the inn. The £3.50 charge for electrical hookup is fair. The food was extremely good and the service exceptional.

Stopped over in our motorhome and had the nicest salmon meal ever. Nice beer (cask) and the cleanest toilets I've seen. Two for one meals made it even better. Well worth a visit even though it's in the middle of nowhere !

We came in for a meal on January 30th evening. I can honestly say the service was exceptional. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a polite young lady at the bar who got us drinks and showed us to the table straight away. Although it was full that evening, we had our orders taken very quickly, and... More

We popped in with a friend this weekend, for a late lunch. Initial service was a bit slow (we couldn't find anyone to begin with, even with ringing the bell!) and it took a while for the food to arrive but when it did it was lovely! The pub itself is very traditional, with wood burner etc. but in the... More

We went to The Thelbridge for a 50th birthday party on New Years Eve. The bedroom was small but perfectly fine, room No1 ground floor. A bit noisy from the room above, people walking about. The pub was very very busy but the quality and quantity of food was spot on. Also you couldn't fault the service. After our meal... More
