2nd visit. Food is fine, a tad expensive for what it is and we're anything but tight when it comes to eating out. Service this time was dreadful. We sat in the bar and it was regularly unattended leaving a build up of people queuing. There were 3 members of staff on, appreciate they were busy but they would leave... More

It looks attractive from the road, the car park is big, we had heard that the food was very good and we gave it a go. We were not disappointed, the staff were very welcoming the dining room spacious, well decorated and warm The menu was not extensive but there was nevertheless a good choice of food. The service was... More

Stayed overnight at the "Inn" on the way to Cornwall. Were made very welcome. Deluxe King Room was very large with settee and lovely view over the countryside. Had a meal in the restaurant which was also good - had to leave some because of the large portions.

Had a wonderful two night stay here. Genuinely friendly staff working here making this place quite exceptional. Set in stunning countryside. Food - breakfast lunch and dinner - very good (Soup - broccoli and blue cheese- was sublime!) . Loved the mix of spaces to suit differ needs - quiet areas and then comfortable friendly bar area. Just great!

Not the cheapest place to stay but the rooms in this old inn are large, stylish and well appointed. There’s no residents’ lounge but there was plenty of space in the bar when we were there. Meals are available from the bar and in a more formal ‘silver service’ dining room. There’s ready access to the moor and National Cycle... More

We received a warm welcome, were shown to a fab room, ideal for the dog on the ground floor with direct garden access. We ate in the bar for our evening meal and it was superb, local produce, generous portions... More

Whenever we have guests, we take them here to eat as we know we are guaranteed great food, beautiful setting and friendly staff. It would be nice to see the menu change as it has been the same for quite some time but it is still my favourite place to eat locally.

My wife and I had just had a stressful time due to a death in the family. Our youngest son took us to Bearslake for a night to get away. It was a perfect place! We were in the Hayloft, a very spacious room with a view over Dartmoor. The room was very comfortable and clean with en-suit. The freebies... More
