Three of us had a very disappointing meal last evening. The food was just about OK - my cheese and wild garlic omelette had no cheese or garlic flavour at all. Service was poor - we felt ignored and had to go in search of the waiting staff more than once. Overall poor - will definitely not recommend this venue.

We held our wedding reception here last week for 27 close friends and family then stayed overnight as did some of our guests. Philip and Kate, what can we say? Just perfect in every way. You worked so hard to make our day so wonderful. From the moment we sat down and planned it with you to breakfast the following... More

Stayed here for a weekend for our anniversary, lovely accommodation with the comfy bed and good facilities. Restaurant was lovely. Best steak and delicious pudding. Breakfast was really good too. Recommend this B and B and restaurant. Staff really welcoming and friendly.

Having eaten at this hotel in the past and always found the food to be excellent, we decided to stay when visiting friends in nearby Tavistock. We arrived mid-afternoon and found little in the way of welcome. However, the bedroom itself was nicely decorated and the bed turned out to be very comfortable. The bathroom on the other hand clearly... More

Called in here on spec for lunch, while out for the day while in the area on holiday. Never been here before but wish we lived closer! We both had the Flat Iron Steak with cherry tomatoes, onion rings and chips followed by Panacotta and I can honestly say it was the nicest meal I have had for many years.... More

This is my third visit to the Dartmoor Inn to eat; it has been redecorated in an unobtrusive, contemporary style since my last visit a couple of years ago, which is a great improvment aesthetically. The staff were available, friendly and helpful. The environment was spotlessly clean. We had a table in the restaurant and as such were able to... More

Having heard that the Dartmoor Inn menu had been refreshed with the addition of a bar menu, my friend and I decided to try it out. We enjoyed a drink at the bar - the wine menu is concise but varied offering something for everyone - ordered and then went through to dine. My friend chose fish salad which was... More

Stayed for two nights, excellent evening meals & lovely breakfasts. Very good value with sensible wine prices. Service also excellent. Will happily return for more of the same, only downside is the traffic noise, ironic in that a 300yd walk & you are straight on the moor!

We have been going to the Dartmoor for many years. We have yet to have a bad meal. Today's lunch - steak and duck stunning! Service excellent . This is a great place to stop of on a walk on dartmoor. They have a choice of a bar menu or a good substantial lunch.
