Tried to book for a Friday night but was full. We were then offered a Saturday night instead so we rearranged our weekend to fit and booked a ferry (we live on The Isle of Wight and the ferry is not cheap ). Later in the week we got a phone call to say they had double booked and had... More

Coming to do a short round walk in Dewlish we needed a bar meal to set us up. The Oak at Dewlish met that need admirably. The Ham & Tomato Paninis were excellent and the salad was very generous and the best we'd had for ages. Proper crisp lettuce, instead of that awful dandelion leaved stuff, radishes, celery, onion, etc,... More

We quite often go for a tootle around the county and stop at random pubs. We did this today and had an early roast dinner here. It was lovely, no complaints, staff were friendly and welcoming. Food was good enough and a reasonable price.

I stayed here for 1 night as part of a stop over for work. I stayed in room 1. The rooms are very strange in that they have lovely high ceilings and extremely well decorated along with excellent Christy bedding. However the ensuite was a little too crammed. Storage is ample and lighting excellent. I slept fine though and heard... More

This was my first time eating at the Oak at Dewlish, and I was disappointed with the quality of the food we were given. The gravy covering our roast turkey was very unappealing, with no taste to it, the potatoes seemed as though they have just come out of the microwave, and the vegetables which came out in a separate...

Large family gathering, we aren't from the area, but we were made to feel very welcome. All the roasts were of a good standard and my kids' lasagne was impressive. Good choice of local ales, Autumn Gold was a favourite. Good area outside for kiddies.

Stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend to attend a wedding 15 min away by car. The staff and service was friendly and welcoming. The room was comfy with all the amenities that one could want for a relaxed weekend. Everything was very clean and done to a high standard. Thoroughly enjoyed having a remote-controlled skylight (note: even leaving... More

There is nice garden in the backyard. There is a pub just below the b&b. I was nt very happy as... More

Having been here on many occasions, including bring large groups of up to 40 people, I really do rate this country pub. Oddly enough I know about six others in the area and this stands out. I think some 15 years ago this pub was in a dodgy state BUT there has been a very steady and impressive change over... More
