Bathroom well fitted and modern. Could have done with a bit more headroom in the shower though. Dined in the restaurant and the food was of... More

Thought I would come here to try the carvery. Wished I hadn't wasted my time and money. We sat outside, taking advantage of the lovely weather. My husband had the 'trio of potted fish'. This was simply prawns, shredded mackerel & crab that had been placed into pots and had a little melted butter poured on top! My carvery, whilst... More

Use your satnav to find it or you may well get lost. Struggle on though as the place is an absolute gem. Situated right next to a river with all the wildfowl you could imagine. Peaceful and a great camera opportunity. Eat on the terrace overlooking the river and choose from a wide variety of food. The price is right... More

We have experienced many lunches at the Fishermans Cot, mainly because it has good wheelchair access, suitable WC facilities & reasonably priced good food. However, until last thursday we had never stopped in one of the Chalets. Although it does not pretend to be fully accessible, we spent a very pleasing night here with really comfortable beds. The staff were... More

Four days away at The Fisherman's Cot. Amazing location and very friendly service. Our rooms were a good standard ( a double and a twin ) and the food was good value for money. Went. with my children and their Grandma who all welcomed the smaller portion option on the menu. A great choice of breakfast with very prompt service.... More

I liked it much better this time. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The gardens and plants looked cared for and of course, The Cott has location in spades. If you wish to take a break and enjoy a drink, this riverside pub will please. If you wish to eat then the menu seems to be well thought out and... More

Stayed 3 nights in this Marstons pub/hotel the staff were great young local people doing a good job.The location on the river Exe with the weir almost in the back garden cannot be beaten.The thatched roof and mainly wooden buildings over a very large site with plenty of car park space probably make this place one of the best Marstons...
