Normally the choice for a vegetarian meal is limited but not in this delightful old country pub. From a wide choice I Had an excellent omelette with veg and garnish. Nicely presented. I lingered in front of the log fire, joking with landlord. It was good to see how welcome children were. Although I was not stopping overnight the landlady... More

I book accommodation for our engineers all over the UK and always ask for their honest opinion so that I can put on our approved list of accommodation and therefore use again if it is good. The feedback from Graham on The Portsmouth Arms was 'One of the best with amazing hospitality' Extremely friendly, great food, clean with super accommodation... More

We visit this pub on at least an annual basis as we stay in accommodation locally. Always a warm reception in the pub from the landlord and his wife, and the locals. Guarranteed a hearty and tasty meal here.

We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst touring around Devon and Cornwall. On arrival we were greeted as if we had only visited yesterday. In fact it's about 40 years ago! Andy and Dee and the folks at the bar made us extremely welcome and within minutes we were chatting like old friends. Our room was very attractive... More

What a fantastic place to stay. We had a fab four night stay with great food and were made to feel like one of the locals - as they're great fun too. Dee and Andy are fantastic hosts and will do anything for you including dietary requirements with your evening meals and breakfasts. Cottage accommodation is spotless and very comfortable... More

Another enjoyable stay at this very friendly Way Side Inn. Dee and Andy make you very welcome, as ' Mine Hosts', and the Locals compliment the environment, with their banter and friendly behaviour. The associated accommodation and cottages are an ideal retreat from the Pub, making it drinker user friendly. The food in the Pub is excellent, and very good... More
