I stayed at the Old Inn on the weekend of 13th to 15th Nov when Devon was hit by a magnificent storm. My cliff walk to Salcombe might have been a miserable affair had it not been for the warmth & hospitalty offered by Terry & Kathy. Their advice on the route to follow during such dangerous conditions was invaluable... More

Kathy, Terry and all staff are very welcoming. From the moment you arrive until you say your goodbyes, they always attend with a smile. Food was excellent and the atmosphere in the night is brilliant. A pub with a real homely feel to it. Great value for money. Superb location with Salcombe only a few minutes drive or a lovely...

Kathy and her staff run the pub well but the B and B side of the business has a long way to go. We enjoyed the pub, the atmosphere and food were good. The rooms are basic. The traffic noise does not help. The tea and coffee making facilities were missing, the shower head was filthy and the bed uncomfortable.... More

Supper at the Old Inn is a must when we visit the South Hams. Rarely is pub grub such excellent value for money, superbly cooked and generously portioned. As for their fish and chips, I would be hard pressed to find anywhere else locally that aspires to Old Inn standards.

B&B has a warm welcome friendly atmosphere. Very helpful people, with a "can do" attitude to service; good pub food and clean comfortable room. Breakfast the next morning was full English and very good. The Old Inn is well worth a visit!

Stopped by to have dinner - all was pleasant and fine. I was given a table and sat quietly. Then after 10mins waiting for a menu I was told it will be an hour or more before you can order as we have 'more important people' in. Verbatim. Made to feel like a third class person. Wow. Avoid.
