Called in for lunch with friends and we all enjoyed an excellent meal. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts who provided superb food and catered for our various dietary requirements admirably. We sat in their very pleasant restaurant but also took advantage of the excellent hospitality provided in the bar. We look forward to our next visit.

We stayed at the Bearslake last week and it was one of the best inns that we have ever visited. Besides being a beautiful building it was in a lovely location. Our room was a nice size and full of character. It had everything in it that you could wish for. The evening meal was excellent and the breakfast was... More

We stopped off in the area on our way from Portsmouth on way down to Cornwall. We were recommended this establishment for dinner from our BnB owners at the Hunters Moon. We phoned ahead for a table. The meal was amazing and I particularly enjoyed the beef fillet. Afterwards we spent some time in the bar and enjoyed the beer.... More

Dog friendly and the food is amazing. Dogs allowed in the bar but you can eat bar or restaurant food. We are both vegetarian and we had two choices which is very rare. We had one each and they were both amazing. The inn is so pretty and the staff are very friendly. Definitely recommend!

We spent 2 nights here at the beginning of our 11 week trip around the UK and we really enjoyed this place. The atmosphere, room quality, food, and friendly professional service were wonderful. Certainly a real gem in the heart of Devon.

Bearslake Inn is located in an older building with a thatched roof. The rooms are rather low, which means you have to watch your head, but also adds to the charme of the place. We ate there for dinner and lunch as well as breakfast. The food was of good quality and the breakfast was also very good. Overall I... More

Had early dinner on a Friday evening. I had plaice with garlic potatoes and vegetables. My wife had a chilli vegetable and nut stir fry with rice, both were excellent and cooked to perfection. We shared a cheese board which had a description of each of the 5 local cheeses. We ate in the bar but there is a more... More

Visited this beautiful inn for a Sunday lunch in April 2015 with my partner. We had 2 roast beef with seasonal veg. The veg given to share was barely enough for one plate I asked could we have some more and the waitress quickly came with more. The food is of excellent standard no quarrels there! We enjoyed a great... More

After staying in a really expensive seaside hotel the previous night, it was a breath of fresh air to stay at the Bearslake !. Great service, great beer, and great food in the restaurant, quaint room and a good breakfast, all at very good value for money I will definitely stay again.

When we arrived we were met and checked in. Very friendly lady who provided us with a flask of fresh milk for the room, and took us out to our room. Fantastic room, absolutely massive. Comfy and clean. Amazing view up to Dartmoor. Nice bar area, real ales and the usual drinks available. Lovely pub garden with a small river.
