I recently had dinner here with friends. Very disappointing and over-priced. I had the scallops wrapped in bacon (priced at £10.95), which came with a salad and balsamic dressing. When it arrived I thought I had ordered a starter by mistake! The plate was very small and the salad was about the size of a salad garnish I have had... More

On Saturday 16th August 2014 we booked into the Dartmoor Lodge for my Daughters Wedding from start to finish it was excellent. All our guests complimented us on the perfect venue, the food was excellent, the marriage service was perfect, the staff couldn't do enough for us, all in all a fabulous day was had by all. Thank you Dartmoor... More

Fantastic accommodation, food and service. Very friendly, helpful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Amazingly relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful and convenient location. Plenty to do close at hand - including the fantastic Asburton Cookery School, the amazing Otter and Butterfly Sanctuary and the Devon Steam railway - all of which we would thoroughly recommend! A really great... More

We arrived late on a Friday night and was checked in by a courteous young man named Tom. As we were taking our dog on a walking on the moors weekend, we were expecting a "dog" room but were immediately surprised on entering. Room exceptionally clean, well stocked courtesy tray and no sign or smell that a dog had ever... More

We came in over the weekend, just for a drink. I hadn't been here before but was struck with how friendly the bar staff were and the really easy comfortable atmosphere of the pub. I wasn't particularly hungry, until I had a sneaky look at the menu. I decided to opt for the prawn marie baguette. My friend had the... More

The annexe may be a good idea if coming back late from an evening out but it smelled of damp. The room also smelt the same, so much so that I had the window open fully for two hours before retiring. The carpets along the annexe corridor looked they had been flooded and consequently stained. The crital windows we're badly... More

First the negatives: The 'hotel' accommodation is separate from the main building and you need to remember a 'code' to get through the annex door. The corridor in the annex was very narrow and damp, I'm presuming they were flooded (judging from the marks on the carpet) so that wasn't too inviting. At breakfast in the pubs dining room you...

Great find. We saw a services sign off the A38 and the lodge was at the end. A Hotel that serves a really good breakfast. Self service. Hot and cold food. Plenty of choice Good value, pleasant staff a treat. The stop was restful. No crowds and set us up for the rest of the journey.

Have eaten here a few times of late and always found the food very good with excellent presentation. The staff are attentive and very obliging. They all have a welcoming smile and nothing is too much trouble. Would recommend the restaurant with confidence. The hotel has the added plus of ample parking situated just off the A38.
