Charmingly old-fashioned, yet modern, stylish and welcoming. Plenty of smiling faces; young and old. It's family run. Wwelcomes kids and dogs, much of the staff are young and the food is delicious. This 700 year-old inn certainly delivers on rustic heritage and medieval charm. Great Sunday lunches.

This is a quintessential country pub. It is lovely. If you go to Dartington this is nearby and well worth visiting for a meal. They have pub food which is unusually good, Their steak pie is fantastic.

Went for lunch..Not planned just saw the sign. Lovely surprise. An old thatched Devon longhouse methinks set in a singularly uninspiring village. Once inside (avoiding the low beam on the doorway.. Which I failed to do... Twice..) though you enter a classic English pub atmosphere with a warm welcome from the staff. Good range of beers and the wine list... More

We spent three nights at The Cott Inn and from our experience we would not hesitate to recommend this establishment. From arrival to departure the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean, comfortable and equipped with everything a guest could need. We were very pleased with our dinners and there was nothing missing from... More

I could probably write a 'small book'about this ancient Restaurant offering accomodation, so where do I start... Not too difficult in fact as the 'Cott Inn' ticks all the critical boxes when it comes to top value for money. That is not to say it is expensive, indeed it is very fairly priced given the extremely high standard of room... More

This wonderfully preserved very old traditional English Inn serves excellent food in its bar/dining room. Very good wine list offering good selection. Efficient, polite and friendly staff. Also dog friendly which was an added bonus as we had our young puppy with us and didn't want to leave her in the car. Perfect venue for our evening.
