The room was a very good size as was the bathroom......The shower was very good.......we are... More

Booked in for a meal only so not commenting on accommodation. Service was good and food came out quickly.But this is the point where they let themselves down.The portions are quite small and not worth the money.Food was ok but not great.Probably not the place to go for a special occasion. Great location though. Not one on my list of... More

Attentive, efficient and pleasant staff. Easy check in and out. Rooms quiet, comfortable and well equipped. Food excellent and large well stocked bar. Huge car park. A long time since I've been to an inn and had such a good experience. This is an excellent base for a short break in E Devon.

Have been coming back to this lovely place for many years on both pleasure and business trips. Absolutely adore everything about it. I need not say anymore as the other reviews give a great assessment. Highly recommended to visit any time of the year for a truly enjoyable break.

We stayed here for one night. It's in a lovely position right on the river. Convenient for all over Devon. Lovely rooms with everything you need for a stay. A bonus is that our room opened out onto a grassed area where if it was warm you could sit outside. Very welcoming staff. Parking right outside our door.

Stayed the night for an anniversary celebration. Comfortable lodgings. The room was warm and welcoming. Food was nothing special but quite edible. Generally had a good time. Last night stay was 15 years ago. Certainly not disappointed with this one. Will stay again.

Rooms are good and accessed externally from the main pub. The food is good and beer very reasonable. ample car parking and across from another nice pub if... More
