This is a great country pub, stacks of character and the atmosphere is friendly. The staff actually want to be there and help, makes for a very relaxed evening. I've eaten here a few times and never been disappointed. Equally great to sit at the bar and drink wine with friends. The summer offers a great outside space with a... More

We have eaten here a few times, and have never been disappointed . A good menu with a wide range of differant local produce. Not the cheapest of places to eat but good quality tasty food well cooked and value for money. You sometimes get what you pay for and this is one of those places.

We booked a short stay at the Cott Inn just after the new year and have to say were delighted. On arrival we were met by the owner (Mark) at the bar who took us up to our room and also booked us in for dinner that night. Room was spotless, had free WiFi and was very comfortable (especially the... More

Saw in the New Year at the Cott last night and it was fantastic. First class dinner, wines, service, bonhomie, music; everything was perfect. We started off with delicious mulled wine, followed by a champagne cocktail. Most of us had the cheese soufflé starter or lobster soup then beef or mushroom Wellington. Puddings, especially the chocolate tart with salted caramel... More

We booked to spend Christmas at the Cott, arriving Christmas Eve and leaving Boxing day or the day after. It didn't enter our heads unfortunately that there would be NO FOOD!! We have spent many christmasses in country inns locally and had a fantastic time so we thought things would be the same at the Cott. Management assures us they... More

Having eaten here a few times over the past year or so I have to say that both the food and the ambiance at the Cott Inn are excellent. Just what you expect and want from a real Devon Inn. We shall so be coming back here again

Dartmouth is a regular holiday trip for us from Scotland we know the area well but this year we discovered a gem of a place to stay at the beginning and end of our holiday. It was the Cott Inn near Dartington tucked away in a very narrow lane network near Dartington. The Cott Inn exudes charm and character the... More

This review is just for pub and restaurant as am local so never use hotel. Title says it all - I keep returning here more and more and over the last year or two it has really gone from strength to strength. Friendly service that is efficient but not overly so, excellent food and good amounts, lovely atmosphere with the... More
