The best carvery around! You get what you pay for & the food here is WELL worth the money. I do not imply it is expensive, just value for your buck! Staff are always efficient & very friendly. Cannot fault it, & we visit quite regularly.

We came to the Dartmoor lodge hoping for a meal and to book a room within the next couple of weeks. Coming to the reception area the receptionist was on the phone to what sounded like another employee about the computer system, fair enough..but having stood waiting in front of her for nearly 10 mins without being acknowledged in any...

Just had a Carvery which was absolutely delicious, have been for the same many times and it never disappoints. Plenty of variety of meats and veg. Chef and staff very friendly, good atmosphere, and very busy, which is a good sign,

This was not a good experience at all. To be specific, the chicken and sweetcorn soup was over seasoned and lacked egg white. Two of the starters where fish (prawns and calamari) and were not well presented. The three others starters were unintentionally cold. The main courses are best described as a selection of 'stews'. Beef and oyster sauce (beef... More

My husband and I have eaten at the Lodge a handful of times and 7 years ago we even had our wedding reception there (it was under a different ownership then). We've called in a few times for a Sunday Carvery and I have to say they are excellent and well worth the money. The restaurant has been full every... More

We booked in February to stay one night , and were so disappointed with the very brief experience. The staff were rude - reception staff informed us that unless we ate Chinese food we would not be able to eat any other menu unless we ate at 6.45pm, as it was 'easier for the chef.' and when we were shown...
