Our first visit to The Cott Inn for a Sunday lunch was a pleasant experience overall. The six of us had a mix of starters, mains and puddings and the overall thoughts of the group was that the meal was average. The starters of prawn cocktail provided a generous serving of prawns, but the accompanying sauce was rather forgettable and... More

Knowing this pub from 20 years ago we visited on a damp cold Tuesday to find the car park nearly full (always a good sign) and just a couple of tables not occupied at 1pm. The young staff members were welcoming, attentive and personable and came and took drink and food orders at the table. The Christmas turkey roast (from... More

Very good bed and breakfast in this pub with good food. Stayed one night and had a tasty meal which was not overpriced. An interesting village with quality shops is within easy walking distance, largish car park.

Lovely atmosphere and decor. Waitress very friendly and attentive with big smiles! Slightly overpriced for the smaller than average portion sizes but tasty. DON'T have the steak if you're hungry...it's a tiny minute steak with a handful of silly skinny fries. We didn't have dessert but did have a cheeseboard. We were asked to move from our table to the... More

Unfortunately it was let down by the standard of food, every meal we ordered arrived... More

What to say about this superb venue. Characterful historic building, more than charming staff, and an original menu, not extracted from the freezer. Mind your head on the way in though! Home made cheesecake to die for, fresh fish from Brixham quay, and home made tartare sauce to go with it.

we went to the Cott Inn for Sunday lunch with some friends whilst down in devon for a long weekend. It is a lovely old thatched longhouse inn set on a hill which oozes character both inside and out. Personally we found the main roast dinners to be of pub standards-ok and good portions- but lacking some quality. The puddings... More

Went here twice for lunch while in England, the food was very good and was mainly locally sourced,which was a nice change, the service was good but the girls seemed to have other things are their minds, however I cannot complain that it was slow as it was not, and as I said the food was very good.
