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

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...

We went for meal sat. 1st Nov.14 to celebrate a birthday.It was totally obvious the waitresses were untrained regarding table service.Bar staff had no basic knowledge of wines. Presentation of food was sub standard, overpriced and unappertising. You eat with your eyes to start with. You are greeted at the front door with a cloud of smoke from smokers crowding... More
