Stayed here for 4 nights while in the area for a reunion. Lovely spot by the river, with lots of outdoor tables. Food was excellent, as were the staff. Room comfortable, but missing a couple of little extras that would make it even better - biscuits, tissues, higher shower head. Would certainly stay here again.

Just had to say thanks to Juanita and her wonderful team, for looking after us so well. We stayed a night, in a gorgeous room with a great view of the river. Our trip started with a very very good meal in the restaurant, waited on by a lovely girl (Michelle, I think). Nothing was too much trouble. The food... More

The only complaint .. didn't want to go... More

Stopped here for lunch during a break from the archery field in Dunster. The food is excellent and the beer 🍻 jennings cock-a-hoop yummy 😋 Would certainly recommend that you visit. The riverside restaurant adds to the atmosphere and watching the ducks on the water is great

We stayed on a Friday night in June and to be fair, we had left it late booking and got one of the last rooms. We were put in room 1 which is immediately outside of the main entrance. The room was dark, even though a nice sunny day outside, the bathroom was a reasonable size with a smallish bath... More

My husband and I stayed at The Fishermans Cot for a couple of days to unwind! The setting is first class, and the staff were extremely friendly. We could not fault the service at all. We had a chalet separate from the main building which was clean and presentable. The food could not be faulted and was sourced from local... More

I stayed at the Fisherman's Cot in a party of ten on a walking weekend. The hotel and it's location are brilliant - rural Devon at its best. Sitting outside one evening, we saw a family of otters playing briefly in the river and the occasional antics of incompetent drivers reversing on the nearby bridge provided added entertainment. The staff... More

We were a group of 12 on a weekend visit to the Fisherman's staying and eating at the venue. The location is stunning on the banks of the River Exe, with easy parking in their large car park. Although it is a Marstons Inn the Cot is does it's own thing with locally sourced food with a list of the... More

This room we had was lovely and clean with everything you need. The staff were so helpful and the setting by the river is just amazing. It's family friendly but quiet enough if you want to get away for a quiet weekend. I would highly recommend a stay at this pub!
