Had over an hour wait for our food to arrive after the order being taken, and this was from what we could see to be a very quiet night, as only a handful of people in the restaurant, and the bar area was empty. Drinks very over priced, unless we were charged for tap water ??? But one a good... More

I booked an 'economy room' as it was the cheapest on offer and I was travelling alone for business. All of the rooms on hotels.com are described as having a 'private bathroom' so I assumed they were all en suite (my mistake). When I was shown to my room it didn't have en suite facilities - my bathroom was across... More

The room was spacious and the staff friendly. Breakfast was good, as was the food. BUT our room badly needed redecorating and the bathroom was unbelievably outdated and grubby. Would not stay here again.

All the staff were great, the room comfortable and clean, the meals were excellent, the drinks prices perhaps a little on the high side but the room price with inclusive breakfast made the stay very good value

Don't bother- there are much better places in Ivybridge for a drink. The landlord is very loud and brash, the front of house managers are terrible at their jobs and are attrocious to their staff (except the female FOH manager.) The food is poor standard and terribly overcooked. They do theme nights with end up being horrendous. Seriously- go somewhere... More

A regular meeting place for me and friends. The food is easily 5* quality, with the menu changing frequently to reflect seasonality and has a price range to suit all pockets. We attend the quizzes and karaoke too and the theme nights are also really good fun (look out for the annual St George's day evening!!). The beer is good... More
