The Dartmoor Lodge is a great place for a Carvery. The food is excellent the service is exceptional every time! I would recommend this on a Sunday - be aware they don't serve carvery everyday.. At peak times it is best to book ahead.

Have stayed at the Lodge several times before and this one lived up to our expectations again. Room was clean and comfortable, staff very friendly and obliging, food excellent and a selection of real ales in the bar. All in all a great break with the added bonus of fine weather. No hesitation in recommending

We ate here one evening, having walked down from Lavender House Hotel. We found the staff to be friendly and efficient, and the food very good. I had a big plate of wholetail scampi, chips, peas and salad with dressing, and my husband had pasta arribiata and garlic bread. Not haute cuisine, but very welcome after a day on the... More

The room needed a bit of tlc (sink plug faulty, hot tap faulty etc) Passageway to the room smelled damp. All in all - a bit shabby and should have been better for the price. Staff friendly, restaurant ok but dated, beer choice good

Haven't been here for a few years so wasn't sure what to expect. 5 of us dropped in for food and drinks on a Tuesday evening and got a table quickly enough. Food was basic but well enough cooked and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only downside was a couple of boors who seemed to believe that they... More

Having stayed here several times through work I decided to come back with family for a few nights. The family room was spotlessly clean, could not fault the housekeeping staff at all. Lots of clean towels, plenty of tea and coffee. Breakfast was good, lots of choice. The restaurant area is very warm and welcoming. Had two evening meals there,... More

This venue ticks all the boxes for a perfect family celebration or a quick meal whilst on a journey or just a night out with friends. There is also accommodation making it an ideal wedding venue. All food is of top quality and home made and freshly cooked. Staff friendly and helpful, mostly family. Can't fault it.

Just went for the Sunday carvery, as it had been recommended to us. Excellent ! Choice of gammon, turkey, pork or beef, with good selection of veg at sensible price. Plenty of very helpful and polite staff. Best to book, as it was busy. Will go again.
