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

We have just spent 3 nights in The Cott Inn and have nothing but praise for it. Every member of staff treated as regulars and were so genuinely warm and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. 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

This place seems really overrated to me. We went for Sunday lunch, and were impressed by the attentive, helpful staff. However, lunch was average at best. Lovely Yorkshire pud, but the 2 thin slices of beef were overdone, as were the veg. Gravy was standard smooth packet stuff. I wouldn't bother with this place again.

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
