Forty people from our club went to the hotel recently for a Christmas meal. The room was very nice but the food was very disappointing and really quite average. The starter I had was described as fig, grape & blue cheese salad. It was very dry with no dressing, three grapes and the very thinnest of slices of fig, if... More

First impressions are great. It's a nice big old place for the kids to run around. The service is friendly but a little slow. The food is shocking! There is 3 course set menu for 10 pounds and to say it was disappointing is an understatement. The soup was nuked so much, even 10 mins later it was still too... More

Our room was a twin room on the ground floor which was what we asked for, and this was clean and very nice. The bar has a lovely log fire in it although... More

I enjoyed a two night stay at this hotel on a business trip. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The building looked a bit tired on the outside but it was much better inside. My wardrobe doors were very creaky. The room was clean and had the basics. Sleep quality was ok though I could sometimes hear people as they... More

My expectations were not high before visiting the Roebuck for an overnight stay as I had allow my colleague to make the booking. However, overall things weren't at all bad. The room was clean and modern, food pretty reasonable and the breakfast well cooked. Staff friendly and accommodating. The the price, pretty decent!

A group of 6 of us needed to find a hotel that was close to the Bluebell Railway When booking for a murder mystery evening. The Roebuck Hotel at Wych Cross is a 10 to 15 minute drive away which was ideal. the hotel is superb, with old fashioned charm and hospitality by the bucket full. The price was £65... More

My friend and I stay at the Roebuck on a regular basis and it never disappoints. All the staff are welcoming, friendly and very helpful. The food is good value and excellent quality. The bar and lounge areas are cosy and comfortable. There is a very pleasant patio and garden area. Dog owners should note that dogs are welcome at... More

We have just moved to the area and decided to treat ourselves to lunch. On arrival it became apparent that the decor needed updating. We walked up to the bar to inquire whether we were able to have lunch and we were told to take a seat at table in a dark corner next to the fruit machine. We soon... More

Ideal for a short weekend or longer stay, plenty of attractions nearby, within easy reach of the coast. Clean quite accommodation, prompt service for bar and food. Staff mainly European but with good command of English, helpful seemed to be well used to working the hotel.
