We had a great lunch, where nothing was too much trouble and the food was lovely. There is a snug for private dining for small groups that is great. The owners are very welcoming and the place is a hidden gem, the choice is also excellent.

We had a really good night staying at the Ridgeway (wedding reception). Modern bathroom with lots of space. Breakfast (full Devon) was perfect. Kevin was brilliant and went out of his way to help us. Would recommend to a friend.

Quiet and comfortable. Our room (Beech) looked out over the rolling countryside and was warm and well appointed. Kevin and Carole were charming and on hand to provide our every need. The dinner menu offered a huge choice. My steak was tender and delicious. Breakfast offered another vast range of options. I chose the Devon breakfast and my wife the... More

Tucked away just north of Axminster this is a modernised country pub with a few rooms. There is a small bar, restaurant and function room. My room was very comfortable with a really comfortable double bed, ensure bathroom with an enormous tub. Nice in room touches like perfume and toiletries. There was a mini bar that would be stocked on... More

I took a local resident here for a birthday meal, and again was not disappointed. We often eat here when we are looking for a quiet meal locally. We enjoy the ambience of the place, and we are well-known to the owner, so we are always dealt with in a friendly manner which adds greatly to the pleasure of the... More

Promising decor if a bit contrived... A bit like the menu.. Vegetables soggy and tasteless.. Never seen Bubble and Squeak so runny and grey!! Portion size was mean and money grabbing, which given the pricing on the menu, was disappointing .. Not for me
