The roast dinner is good quality and well cooked meat, homemade yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes are fresh. The vegatables always taste fresh and have none of that microwave feel to it all fresh and... More

Right from the call to book the room until we left this has been a pleasurable experience. I have never know friendlier, happier staff who obviously enjoy where they work and want you to enjoy it too. Our room was bright, comfortable and spotless. The food was excellent. High quality but without any gastro-pub pretentiousness or small portions. Excellent breakfast.... More

I came here for dinner for valentines day this year. There was a set menu which still had plenty to choose from, three courses cost £30 and you certainly left feeling very full! The restaurant was packed out as to be expected and we were sat at a "sharing" table so not ideal for a romantic meal for two. Our... More

From the moment we enteted the Cott, we were made to feel welcome. Both staff and the locals were friendly and accomodating. We had a drink in the bar, with log fires at both ends of the area we didnt want to leave, but as we'd booked a room, we checked in and were shown to our beautiful room which... More

First visit to the Cott Inn, Dartington, established in 1320. In common with most other reviews we found the staff so helpful and they are so efficient. The food and accommodation are first class.Situated equidistant between Dartmoor and Torbay with Dartington Hall within half a mile, it is an idea place to explore all three. Until the next visit!! P.H.... More

The Inn is lovely, rooms are immaculate and food is fantastic and well priced. It is clear that there is a very strong 'customer... More
