We had a lovely lunch with friends on the outside terrace, before visiting Buckfast Abbey. Very varied menu choice, reasonable prices, lovely food which all arrived together (great as there were 7 of us) and very friendly & welcoming staff.

Another one-night stay, and with the beginnings of a heavy cold, I was grumpy when I arrived...but I got put right very soon. I was greeted by the landlady (she's called Cecilia - but don't sing) who showed me to my room (Dart) which was so overlooking the river it was almost in it.... really super view - especially in...

Stayed one night as part of a 3 day nostalgia trip. The setting is beautiful - right alongside the Dart. It was unfortunate that it was raining for a large part of our time there so sitting out was a no no. The room was good and comfortable- on suite shower, tea/coffee making facilities and TV. At £79 for a... More

We stayed here for a 2 night break. We had a lovely big room overlooking the river, the bathroom was small...but really, how long does anyone spend in there? We had two evening meals here, both were lovely, especially the steak and the roast dinner. Breakfasts was cooked to order and really nice, good quality sausages and bacon and freshly... More

Stayed overnight, very comfortable room, overlooking the river. Excellent evening meal and breakfast. Staff welcoming and friendly. Short walk to Buckfast Abbey (the one with the monks). Good stop for the Plymouth ferryport which is 20 miles away.

This is a lovely Inn with views over the river. Dinner was superb and great value for money. Nice bar and outside area overlooking the river. Breakfast was also superb. We were in the "dipper" room and also overlooked the river. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We had a lovely meal on saturday the 13th September. We go out once a month with friends and try different pubs to eat out in. It was the turn of the 'Abbey Inn' this month and we were'nt disappointed, the food and the service was good. Would recommend to anyone to give it a try.

Situated just off the main road and short walk to the Abbey. My single room was cosy and more than adequate for one night. Staff seemed friendly and the river is lovely. Dinner was good. At first I was a little concerned about noise from the bar below but it was ok however the bedroom walls are thin. Mattress was... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Ale well cared for. Nice selection of wine. Comfortable and clean room (Dart). From the road this pub doesn't appear to have any character and I suspect many drive past with no thought of stopping. However, walk down from the car park and as can be seen from the photos the building has a completely different... More
