The decor is dated but clean and comfortable with lovely bedding and a comfortable bed.The location is perfect, close to breathtaking walks, a couple of other pubs and not too far a walk into Woolacombe. The brekfast was pipping hot and... More

My wife and I chose this family run pub for the first night of a week's tour of Devon and Cornwall. It was by far the cheapest of all the establishments we selected, but we were really just looking for a clean place to sleep and a bit of decent pub grub - nothing Michelin star rated or even AA...

We stayed here recently and were disappointed after reading some of the positive reviews on here. The area of Mortehoe is lovely and very close to Woolacombe, however on arrival we both thought the outside of the B &B looked a bit tatty. We had pre-booked so went in and shown to our room. I noticed 2 vacuum cleaners and... More

This small family run Pub with Bed and Breakfast offers a no frills, good value for money and friendly experience. Our room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. We took our two large dogs, who were made very welcome at a minimal charge - brilliant for those who enjoy holidays with their four-legged friends. The breakfasts were delicious... More

We had an evening meal here as it is a dog friendly venue. The staff were so friendly and we loved George the Boxer Dog. Budge the parrot also kept us entertained. The food was absolutely gorgeous and reasonably priced. The roast potatoes were just perfection and my partner loved his steak and ale pie. If it hadn't have been... More

We had 2 rooms on the first level and 1 on second level which was very generous in size and opposite of Smugglers Rest was the fields of Motheo and Village Car which is... More

family run pub, with a warm welcome on arrival, had a good crack with the barmaid who turned out to be the landlady daughter, and the food was good and tasty, cooked by the mum who clearly has all the old school tricks when it comes to cooking, ok its not a yuppee pub and could prob do with updating...

Unfriendly welcome, hardly any draught lagers / beers available (granted it was out of season, but did not appreciate the sarcastic reply when requesting a draught lager). Quite frankly I would never go back there.
