This pub serves excellent Otter bitter and we stopped here for lunch whilst walking. The garden is superb with a stream running through it with loads of lovely garden furniture to choose from. The service was good . The prices of the lunch are on the high side but good quality

Stayed here for two nights and we loved it. A beautiful thatched longhouse, full of character. The bar is small but very cosy and the restaurant is delightful. We had dinner for eight in the restaurant and we all thoroughly enjoyed it - I can recommend the venison! The quality of food and standard of service far exceeded expectations. We... More

We are local and our first experience of this pub/restaurant about five yearns ago was excellent, however, since then on subsequent visits we have found that the quantity and quality of the food has deteriorated significantly whilst the prices have inflated. We had friends staying with us recently and took them for Sunday lunch and the meal was terrible -... More

My wife and I Stayed in 'the stable' room 01/03/14, with our two dogs. Room was huge, spotlessly clean with everything you could ask for. What a setting for a stay on Dartmoor - easy to find on a (not to busy) moorland main road, friendly welcome, nothing seemed to much trouble, and there is immediate access to the moor... More

Brilliant sunday lunch and excellent value. Very good sorroundings. One of the best places I have been to.The food was very tasty and plenty to eat. More vegeatarian options would have been good. The sorrondings are lovely and very close to a cycle path. It was well worth travelling 10 miles.

Just spent a wonderful night at this first class country Inn! We stayed in The Saddle room and what a beautiful suite it is! Everything in the room was immaculate. We had a few drinks at the bar served by the lovely Jess! Then into the restaurant for dinner. I had crab to start followed by rack of lamb and... More

We stayed in the Saddle room in September 2013. This is a charming building, with excellent friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, and top rate food. I couldn't fault anything about our stay. The helpful staff (and owners) made our stay easy and relaxing even before we got there, we changed our booking at the last minute and this was accommodated without... More

It is located on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park within easy access of the north Cornwall coast, Exeter and the park itself. Rooms are comfortable and spotless. The staff is friendly and accomodating. With its thatched roof and warren of public rooms, it... More

We stayed with friends for one night. We had the Saddle Room while they had the Longhouse. From the start the staff were very welcoming. We were offered fresh milk in a flask for our room which was a lovely touch. There were lots of teas, coffees and chocolates and the shampoos, bodywash etc were lovely and plentiful. The rooms...

Everything about our brief stay here was wonderful. Bearslake is located in beautiful countryside. Just looking around is good for the soul. The room was spacious, clean, warm and cozy. The food was good - really good - and without exception the staff were all attentive, friendly and helpful. Would I stay there again? Yep.
