I have just read that Combe House is to become a Pig Hotel. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I do hope that the new owners will maintain its old world charm and not turn it into a run of the mill boutique style hotel which are now two a penny throughout the country. My wife and I have stayed... More

We've been enjoying dining at Combe House for several years now, so knowing this was our last time under Ken's ownership was a bitter/sweet occasion. As always they pulled all the stops out for us. Excellent food, wine, service and atmosphere. We are sorry that Mark, Fiona and Aggie won't be staying under the new ownership and we wish them... More

We had heard so much about this place from friends that we decided to have our 50th wedding anniversary dinner there. Just my wife and myself. Excellent welcome by what I assume to be the owner and the staff and we were very well looked after. Lovely building, both inside and out. Nice friendly but relaxed bar with very professional...

We recently had a delicious lunch with family at Combe house. It has recently changed hands and we were delighted to see that the food etc was much the same - excellent! They are about to close for a major refit - just hope that they keep all the good stuff and make the updating blend in really well

We really loved the magical remoteness of the setting, the history and character of the hotel, the friendly informality of staff. It was the most romatic dinner setting I've ever had, sat in the Elizabethan bay window overlooking the sunset over the valley. The food and wine were exquisite.

A late anniversary dinner with my wife. Really friendly, professional service, amazing food, and reasonably priced for the exceptional quality. The duck was cooked perfectly, and my wife enjoyed the chicken. The Wild Devon beer is definitely an acquired taste though!
