Went along to The Normandy Arms for an evening meal last night, not expecting much only to be very pleasantly surprised on every level. The decor is warm and inviting just like the landlady and the food was probably one of the best meals I've had in a long time. Every course was beautifully presented and faultless - I can... More

This is such a wonderful change to the soulless hotels available.The rooms are well decorated, clean and extremely comfortable. The restaurant provides a beautiful selection of food to choose from prepared by an outstanding chef. Even the breakfast is perfect. The level of care and attention by the staff/team is faultless. This is a fantastic find where you can enjoy... More

I kid you not, this place is the best kept secret in the South West. The food is just perfectly wonderful: in my estimation the chef Andrew could go and cook anywhere he wanted to go and I dine in what are regarded as the best restaurants in London. My room was as comfortable as can be, not a speck... More

A perfect hideaway that turned out to be an excellent break. Andrew and a Reka made us feel welcomed throughout our stay. The room was comfortable and clean with everything that we required. The evening meal was fabulous right through to the homemade Christmas Pudding Ice Cream. We will definitely be back again, maybe for their Sunday Lunch Club. Rose... More

We were in Devon for a few days and chose this B&B based on Trip Advisor reports. Blackawton is a small village, away from the hustle and bustle of Totnes and Dartmouth. After staying a couple of nights and having our evening meal there we resolved to return again next spring when back in the UK. King size room with... More

Between us we had ribeye and fillet steaks and also fish and chips - I also had woodpidgeon to start. All meals were excellent. My wife... More

This has to be the easiest review I've ever written. Absolutely faultless from beginning to end. We stayed 17th and 18th of August 2013. Warm welcome, beautiful, spotlessly clean room and bathroom and fantastic evening meal and breakfast in a lovely setting. My husband said his steak was the best he'd ever eaten and all prices are very reasonable considering... More

Stayed here for a 2 night break and would thoroughly recommend both the rooms and restaurant. Andrew and Reka are lovely unassuming hosts who provide a very warm welcome, wonderful food and spotless accommodation. Andrew's culinary skills are superb. We ate both evenings at the Pub and enjoyed salmon, bass, steak and lamb, finished off with delicious desserts. They have... More
