This is truly a project for the "The Hotel Inspector"!! We arrived on the Friday evening, checked in at the reception which was actually in the lounge of the pub so was not very private. The lady on reception said they were having trouble with a new web based booking system and neither her or 'her husband?' had much of... More

Let me start with the positives , the bed was very very comfortable and we did get a very goodnights sleep and the price was very good £114 for two rooms on a Saturday... More

This was our chosen overnight stop on the first of seven days walking from Plymouth to Lynmouth - not a good choice! The place really needs some urgent renovation - or at the very least a thorough cleaning. The place is rather tatty and the carpets throughout are quite stained, but at first sight our room looked reasonably clean. However... More

We recently stayed for one night and the staff were lovely, really welcoming and very friendly (very hard working). The room was basic and was tired (the mattresses were uncomfortable although the bedding was beautifully clean and fresh) There were a few niggles such as plastic flowers that were very dusty and the coffee tray was stained but over all...

Good choice of beers. Welcoming landlord. Nice roaring fire in snug area. Tries to cater well for parties,families and quiet drinkers. A lack of atmosphere in the eating area,tho food -including the chips -is fresh varied and good value for money. We come here often for a quiet drink with friends. The best of what Ivybridge town has to offer

called in with my wife and a friend and I was dished up battered fish chips and peas. Battered fish looked like a pile of fried flour, chips were ok and the peas looked like they had been in a pan for a few days. Service was ok, but we had this older lady go on and on, on the... More

We visited the sportsmans Friday 30th January for a nice pub meal and it didn't disappoint. It was a new menu from last time and had a great range of items and some more up market dishes which all sounded lovely. The portion sizes were more than generous and was nice not to see the usual only one scoop of... More

Booked a table for 10 to celebrate my husbands birthday and retirement, the extensive menu suited everyone's taste including 4 grandchildren!!! Service was excellent and all of the meals were served together, all piping hot. Portion size was such value for money. Most of our party had something different and everyone agreed the food was superb!!!!! Today we returned to... More

Although I have not slept at the Sportsmans I have ate there and during the past year I have had occasion to phone them from Asia (where I was staying) to arrange a dining voucher for my son and other residents of Dame Hannah Rogers at Ivybridge this was a group of some 8 severely disabled adults in wheel chairs...
