Wow Rob, what a fantastic review, I might even have to stay there myself!! It was a pleasure to meet you both. Thanks for taking the time to write a review, it really does make a difference when people are looking for somewhere to stay. Perhaps you should think about running a pub yourselves, you certainly were a hit with... More

Stayed in the village 21st to 28th June. Used the pub 4 or 5 times to drink, watch the World Cup and have a couple of meals. Always received a warm welcome and the locals were friendly. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Service good even on Friday when it was very busy. Reccommended.

Thanks John, Both myself & Sophie would like to thank you for your review. We try to please everyone, which can be very difficult, but obviously we must be doing something write judging by our 'Tripadvisor Reviews' Shame we didn't do better in the 'World Cup' but at least you enjoyed a great pint or two!!

We stayed here for a wedding in Salcombe and will be returning as soon as possible. The staff couldn't do enough for us and really did make us feel welcome. The breakfast was superb and very filling. Would happily recommend to anyone.

So impressed with the staff especially the landlady (flower girl)!! A busy lively pub with a happy atmosphere. Food excellent and served with a smile. Very accommodating with my veggie diet. Well done and thank you.

My daughter, Sophie (flower girl) especially likes this review, as you referred to her as the 'landlady'. I was on holiday at the time, and she obviously did a fantastic job, as always, at keeping our guests happy. The promotion has gone to her head!! Hopefully our paths will cross again.

Marlborough is conveniently placed between Kingsbridge and Salcombe so you get the best of both worlds without the high prices charged at either town nearby. We had an amazing meal here so thought we would share it with you. When we walked in there was a really pleasant atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and helpful, they organised a... More

Thanks Biggybigster, for your several kind words. Our kitchen closes at 9pm, so it goes to show how accommodating we are! Very glad you had a great evening, with great food. Perhaps you would like to stay with us next time, as we also do B&B. Once again, thank you for taking the time to review 'The Old Inn' Regards... More

Spacious and clean room. Paid a little less to have a bathroom across the hall but was worth it. Hosts were friendly and professional. Noise from the pub at night could be heard in the room however we were staying over a bank holiday weekend, and in a pub, so this is to be expected. Dinner was fantastic and good... More

Thank you for your review, and pointing out that we are a pub so there will always be an element of noise. We do try our best to keep the noise to a minimum, but often people who are enjoying themselves tend to shout about it, and fueled with alcohol and decent music, they can get a bit carried away....

Had a fantastic meal here on Sunday night. Rang and booked a table pretty last minute (about two hours notice). Hubby and I both went for the rump steak served with caramelised shallot and garlic, chips and green beans - one of the best steaks I've eaten - really tender (we eat ours medium rare) and the shallot/garlic topping really...

Thank you for your review. The steaks are very popular, especially with the garlic & shallot. With regard to your chips, I insist that they are crunchy, not pale, and dripping with fat. Perhaps next time you should try our 'Rump of Lamb' with a red currant jus, served with sauteed herby potatoes & seasonal vegetables. My mouths watering just... More

The Old Inn , Malborough, Devon, is an excellent B&B and good value for money. The hosts Jo Tucker and her family are extremely friendly and obliging. Nothing was too much trouble. Malborough is a small Devonshire village with limited car parking, fortunately the Old Inn has a good size car park. We stayed in the en-suite room which was... More

Many thanks for taking the time to review our family run pub. It was a pleasure to meet both, and enjoy a late drink at the bar, after your eventful day! It is always nice when guests appreciate how hard myself, Sophie and all of our staff work, to ensure a pleasant stay. We hope to meet you again soon.... More

Very welcoming and friendly staff and locals. The spacious bedrooms had all the things you would expect and are amazingly clean and tidy. The breakfast was fantastic and had a wide choice. The price was good value and appears to stay the same all year round. The staff went above and beyond for us and we would not hesitate to... More

This was our third stay at the Old Inn and once again, it didn't disappoint. If you can, try to arrive early on a Friday evening to enjoy the local friendly banter, on their way home after a hard day's work. We settled in to a lovely open fire and really enjoyed our evening meal...the best King Prawns ever and... More

Many thanks for your kind words. We are always grateful to receive such praise!
