Sitting in the hamlet of Lake on the very edge of the north-west corner of Dartmoor this beautiful thatched pub was originally a traditional Devon longhouse. It has been carefully converted into a welcoming pub with lots of different cosy rooms all with many of the original features preserved. The owners are very proud of the buildings’ history as the...

The Bearslake Inn is full of history, family run with great food and atmosphere. Set in the country just near Dartmoor with ample parking. We had a comfortable upstairs room with views of the moor and garden. Staff were really helpful and friendly with tips on where to go and eat nearby. Highly recomended and good value. Its a thatched... More

Stayed for two nights and enjoyed superb food and accommodation. We were made to feel very welcome by Christine and her staff and can assure anyone who chooses to stay here that you will be totally spoilt. Picturesque location, walks & cycle routes direct from the Inn + several well kept local ales to choose from in the cosy bar.... More

Called in for a Sunday lunch at this inn near Okehampton. Being a nice day, we opted to sit outside in the garden area which is very picturescue beside a stream on the outskirts of Dartmoor. The roast lunch was very quick to arrive and in general terms fairly good if a little greasy (the beef). Also a little on... More

We wanted an "Inn style" location for our anniversary, preferably near or in Dartmoor area, and what a gem we got! A picturesque thatched Devon longhouse, knee deep in old world charm. We booked for 2 nights bed/break and had evening meals also, fantstico! We booked the Hayloft room, their "flagship" room, this was pure luxury, normally associated with expensive... More

I have visited this pub in the past a few times. Food was very nice a few years ago, but sadly, it seems to have really gone downhill recently. I ordered a red pepper quiche from the 'specials' board. It was priced at £9 which I thought seemed a bit over priced for a piece of quiche with a salad... More

Thank you for your comments. Value for money and Quality are normally rated highly by our customers hence your views are a great concern. There was clearly a problem with the meal that was served to you which was recognised at the time and has subsequently been discussed in detail with the team in the kitchen. We try very hard... More

This old converted thatched Longhouse is truly special. All the rooms are spacious and special and combine the ambience and Decor that reflect the History of the old Farm with every modern facility. Our personal favourite is the Hayloft that overlooks a bubbling stream and looks out onto Dartmoor in all it's glory. When you combine the comfort of the... More
