We had to book a few days in advance but it was worth it for the food, place does need a little bit of money spent to refresh it, but will go again, when we arrived about 15mins before opening time there was a long queue but it was worth the wait,

We have just had three pleasent days stay at the Sawmill Inn in Devon. The Inn provided a good food menu, with good choice over the period. The room was very neat and the staff where great. We would return for a another visit.

Having just read the other reviews on this place, I really do not understand what people expect. We were staying at hotel just up the road but decided to eat out for a change and, this being the closest location, chose to go here. It was lovely. Drinks were really well priced (pint and a glass of wine for about... More

We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed it. The location is very peaceful if a little difficult to find. Our room was lovely with a comfortable bed and beautiful linens. I also appreciated the in-room fridge with fresh milk and bottled water. The en-suite was small but adequate.

We called here for our lunch today and wasn't that impressed. The food was good pub food but not restaurant quality but the surroundings were very poor. When we approached the entrance I wasn't sure it was open and didn't even change my mind once in. The place is very dark with empty beer bottles on the sides as displays,... More

You get what you pay for as far as accommodation is concerned. We booked one night, last minute for £50. Basic but very clean and a lovely comfy bed. Staff in the pub very friendly, excellent service. Very good breakfast which we paid £6 each for - worth every penny.

Popped in as we were passing, the exterior looks a bit shabby and the interior looks dark and dated. The staff however were extremely polite and the food was pretty good and reasonably priced. All in all we had a very good night
