So I stayed at a local hotel around the corner called the Bovey Castle! It was my 3rd stay. Myself & the wife love it there, but the food is always awful! After a lovely walk, you find this place. What a cracker! We always go for the steak or the fish & chips with homemade pea purée. We have... More

Wonderful stay in a beautiful place. Service,staff, food and rooms were beyond expectations. The menu for dinner was fabulous with a wide and reasonably price wine list.Our room was absolutely beautiful and very well equipped. Highly recommended and we will return soon.

We decided to visit after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. What a beautiful, romantic place set near the village green. All very immaculate but problematic trying to find a parking space. There is a free small Car Park nearby but it was full even though we had missed the busy lunch time. We had a late sitting for Sunday lunch but... More

We had a mid week break in early Feb. loved everything about this Inn. We arrived with our dog who was given a huge welcome. Very dog friendly venue. We were given a choice of rooms and opted for room 4 which has easy access to the gardens for our dog. The room was large and spacious. Local produce and... More

Everything about this lovely old pub - location, rooms, food, beer, service, staff - is excellent. Great that our dog could enjoy it too. The village is exquisitely pretty, the staff friendly and professional, and the food delicious. I loved the vegetarian dish I had.

Third stay - and the best so far. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff and had some memorable meals. Its location - do not follow any Sat Nav - makes it a wonderful base for walks on the moors, allowing more wonderful food to be consumed. We were touched by the main dining room being used... More

There is a great family room here for children and dogs. We made the mistake of not asking to be some place else. This was our fault and not the Inns One of our party is not overly keen on dogs. Both the dogs and children behaved. I wish I could insert one of those little smilie faces here. Good... More

We arrived in a big group with a baby and dog. We booked ahead-glad we did as busy but they served us promptly, fabulous roast. This is the second time I've been-last time nearly 1 year ago with friends. Fantastic each time and lovely walks too.

The Ring of Bells is in the perfect location for exploring East Dartmoor and the inn has a book of graded walks starting and finishing at the front door so you can ditch the car by the village green. It's not clear when you arrive where reception is (it's through the side door to the bar not the front door)... More

We stayed here for three nights over Christmas and had a wonderful time. There was an initial hiccup regarding which room we had booked/been allocated, but this was quickly resolved and we were very happy with the solution. Our room was warm and spacious and the bed was particularly comfortable. This is a "proper" Inn that is frequented by visitors... More
