Very friendly and helpful staff, quality value for money food and very clean and comfortable accommodation. I stay in a lot of hotels for work and many could learn from the owners of this place. Simple things done well, doesn't always need to be fancy.

We booked a room for two nights in order to attend a wedding at nearby Cookbury. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the rooms were clean, fresh and well maintained. The wedding reception in the new function room was excellent. The food was very good, especially the full English breakfast. The Bickford Arms experience added to what was a... More

We stopped at this pub because it had a sign outside that said " food served all day" best we could get at 3.00pm was a bag of crisps this might be classed as food but not to someone on holiday. I think it is very sad that pubs in Britain are closing rapidly but when I experience indifference like... More

We stayed at the Bickford for a family wedding in Cookbury and afterwards and again at the Bickford for the wedding dinner. The Bickford has lots of character, great rooms and food and caring, efficient and friendly staff. The owner, Roy, is welcoming and leads his team very well. Don't expect the Ritz, but do expect a friendly atmosphere with... More

Having gone to the otherwise lovely Rydon Inn only to be told that they only serve a roast on Sundays without starters or puddings, we moved onto the Bickford Arms out on the Okehampton road. Good choice as they offer salads, sandwiches and baguettes as well as delicious looking burgers - we only wanted something light so went for a... More

It was bank holiday Sunday, the pub was very busy but we still managed to get a table, the staff were... More

I stopped off here by accident while cycling from Lands End to John o'Groats and was greeted by a very friendly landlord ,Roy. I was made to feel at home and he offered me free accommodation for the night and a breakfast which was most welcome considering the state I was in late at night. How many landlords would be...
