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

There was persistant road noise although it did not affect the quality of sleep as the bed was so comfortable. There was the usual complimentary tea & coffee tray with bottled water (39p according to the label) and a hairdryer, which was... More

Old fashioned hotel, messed up booking remedied well. 2 single rooms booked instead of a double and a twin. 3 doubles provided as well as a discount to sort out the situation. Breakfast ok and rooms comfortable. Strange pub and decor.
