We stayed for 2 nights. Very clean tidy and friendly. Good value for money. A little freshen up on the bar menu would see it busier I think. The drinks were fairly priced and the beer very well kept. All of the staff that we dealt with were very helpful. A pleasent stay.

Looks good on the outside but awful on the inside. Smells of urine and smelt very very damp. The pub is in dire need of refurbishment. Food was ok, although very salty and wey over seasoned. Just your average meal. I paid £14 for salmon and prawn with salad and chips. The prawns were the small frozen one's just chucked... More

Staying at the campsite next door so as it was chucking it down we decided to try the delights of the sawmill inn for dinner, so this is only a food review rather than accommodation. Nothing on the main menu that took our fancy so decided to choose from the specials menu. I chose casserole served in a giant Yorkshire... More

We stayed 3 nights in August. The room was comfortable with a small fridge which was really useful for keeping our lunches. Fresh milk and water was topped up, and the room cleaned each day. Breakfast was more than adequate and the landlord and his son went out of their way to accommodate us with an early breakfast when needed.... More

Popped in here for dinner. The place was rammed as it has a couple of campsites near by. Dog friendly - bonus! Meals were cheap and cheerful...assuming brought in ready made. However effort had been made ie. fresh chillies in the chilli con carne. I had a chicken burger which was very nice and chips are chip shop style, yummy!... More

We stayed just one night at this Inn, the rooms were adequate, the Price reasonable and the owner very friendly, in fact as we had just returned from a Wedding he kept the bar open for us in order that we could imbibe a few late ones. Breakfast was adequate and the parking was on site.

Not impressed. Had a meal which was very average and presented poorly. Left a bottle of wine on the table by accident when we left and once we realised and turned back 2 minutes later and went back to the restaurant, we were told they knew nothing about it and blamed it on other diners that they had probably taken...

Myself and my husband have just returned from a weeks stay in ilfracombe and stayed here at the Sawmill Inn. The room were very fresh and were cleaned daily, along with this we also had fresh milk in the fridge and water bottles refreshed daily. We were both very impressed with the stay and would recommend this to others.

We stayed here with two children for 4 nights x the rooms are recently decorated and lovely and cosy. The pub offers a wide menu and meals were very nice and tasty. The location of the sawmill provides a great base for exploring what the area has to offer with watermouth castle only a short walk across the road.
