We arrived on a busy Saturday evening and were greeted by a member of staff who asked if we had booked. Unfortunately we had not and a very pleasant young lady checked to see if there was a table available and offered us a table in the bar if we did not mind ordering from the bar. This was not...

Stayed here for two night as a weekend get away for 2. It is in a beautiful setting and lovely to sit outside by the river. After reading other reviews I was pleasantly surprised that the rooms were decent enough. It is an old property so you cant expect anything grand. The room was spacious and clean. A bit dated...

Just left pub 22/8/15 ..Enticed in by beautiful setting, good beer/ale but very disappointed with food ordered. Average pub prices but below average food. I left my salmon and wild rice dish, very dry and over cooked tasteless! My daughters sausage & mash tasted and looked pre cooked... Very grey looking mash. Husbands beef & ale pie had undercooked pastry... More

Booked this hotel via the internet and was impressed by the pictures of the hotel setting. My wife and I were absolutely delighted on arrival to find it more than matched our expectations. Situated as it is, on the bank of the river exe right next to the historic and beautiful Bickleigh Bridge, it was the perfect spot as a... More

Arrived her at 8.40pm and was greeted with suspicion even though last food orders is 9pm. They didn't have what I wanted. So I had seafood salad and husband had chicken melt. Very much pub grub, but chips not great, onion rings pretty awful and my salad unimaginative. Lots of chopped lettuce in a fancy bowl with a few slices... More

We visit the Fishermans Cott fairly often for lunch as it has a lovely riverside location, and generally acceptable food. However today we took friends and I ordered a starter of fish cakes. When they arrived they were broken and squashed, overcooked and greasy . Very definitely not very nice. My friend had the mushrooms which looked delicious, so no... More

A two night stay in a riverside room with modern 4 poster style bed. Relaxed atmosphere with helpful staff. Food & drink were well presented and served promptly. Breakfast well cooked using locally sourced ingredients. Busy on both days but this did not compromise the standard of service.

Very friendly hotel right by the river. Only stayed one night, but the staff were very friendly and the room was lovely and comfortable. Had an evening meal which was very tasty and the following morning had a freshly cooked breakfast which was delicious. As we were still in the area the next afternoon, we came back for cream tea...
