I was a woman travelling alone, not expecting too much from pub accommodation - and I was very pleasantly surprised. I was given one of the cottages, which was very pretty, private, comfy and spotlessly clean. I chose to eat breakfast in the inn (and it was delicious) but was also offered the option of a breakfast tray in the... More

My parents asked me to write this review for them for when they visited us close to this Public House. We discovered that they offered the use of their carpark to facilitate their camper. We had nights out in this establishment and made good use of their restaurant. The food was of excellent quality with outstanding portions, which made for... More

Everything great, hospitality, home comforts, good food, and dogs welcome (thank you from JJ). A new year party among friendly people, and even a generous buffet to enjoy. Hosts with the most. "We'll be back!" Dave and Jennifer

I am down in north Devon once a month on business and would not look past the Portsmouth Arms for accommodation, food, and a great pint. I stay in hotels all over the UK on a monthly basis and this would be my pick of the lot. Nothing is every a problem for the owners - extra early breakfast, late... More

We walked into the Portsmouth Arms expecting to find a dirty and dingy old pub because the outside could use a bit of sprucing up. We were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome from the land lady and her husband. They were both very helpful with directions and giving us tips on what to do in the area. We... More

The place looks a bit run down from the outside, but the inside is lovely with a roaring fire going and loads of beams etc. We were told that anything on the... More

it has been a while since I have visited this establishment but I was not disappointed. The quality of the food and the good sized portions remain as has the value for money. A good steak and some nice wine with some friendly locals at the bar area.
