We stopped in for a nights stay just last weekend. The rooms were immaculately presented, the pub was picturesque and the staff were on hand 24/7 available to help with any problem! Loved every minute of being there and am looking forward to coming back when the warmer weather approaches so I can go swimming in that glorious river that... More

The staff were pleasant enough and standing adjacent to the river Exe it does afford fabulous views of the surrounding area. We had gone for the Sunday Carvery which I thought was fairly run of the mill and twice the price almost of a Toby Carvery. It might seem better when the Salmon are climbing upstream over the weir.

Looking for a One night stay with my Son, turned into Three! The rooms, The food, the surrounding area and the service... all top draw stuff. But a special mention must be said for the staff, especially Mike and Anna (Managers) they couldn't do enough for us, even down to accommodating my very demanding taste in food. Nothing seemed to...

The welcome, was wonderful, the staff so friendly, the room was spotless, the facilities exceptional. The view,from our window, of the river & bridge, was sublime, you could not get, anywhere, more relaxing, with the sound of the river. Harry the Heron was in attendance, most of the day. The food was very,very, good and a great price. If you... More

Stayed here on Saturday evening in the room with the riverside view and four poster bed. What a wonderful experience we had. From check in through to check out I could not fault this hotel, staff were so friendly and helpful, the room was spotlessly clean, we had both evening meal and breakfast, both were exceptional. A big thank you... More

I celebrated my 65th birthday at the Fisherman's Cot, Bickleigh, Devon, and could not have made a better choice. The management and staff were all extremely efficient, friendly and helpful, the rooms were very comfortable and well-appointed, the food was excellent, and the setting beautiful. I would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting an intimate celebration for a small to... More

Popped in for refreshments whilst out for an afternoon drive. The staff were very friendly and the prices were reasonable. The view from the riverside gardens was fantastic and we managed to take some lovely photos. There were plenty of seats available and as it was a warm sunny day we sat outside by the river. The food menu was... More

Great place to stay, we saw a heron fishing and otters playing in the beautiful river. Staff unfailingly polite and helpful, food mostly great, huge portions. Slightly let down by breakfast as scrambled eggs were over cooked but that was our only gripe. We will be staying here again, and would heartily recommend it, our room was large clean and... More

We arrived for a late birthday lunch after a morning Barge trip. The location is beautiful and we were able to get some great family photos with stunning backdrops. The 12 of us chose the carvery. The meat, turkey, beef and pork were all totally delicious. The rest was equally as good and piping hot. Our waitresses, Corina and Jane... More

We arrived at the Fishermans Cot and were greeted with a warm welcome as soon as we arrived by Anna. We found the room to be very clean and well prepared. It had a beautiful view of the river. We found the food to be tasty and plentiful, the red wine was served at the perfect temperature. The waiter was... More
