Booked as part of a party of 40 and the lack of management over who went up for food when made the whole experience chaotic. Parties were not directed to carvery as a whole group which meant that some people from our party were an hour behind others for their meal. The food was fine but the organisation was poor.... More

We stopped here for dinner on October 15th and were pleasantly surprised. My partner ordered their Steak and Ale pie which was quite dry and he was a little disappointed. I think because we were later in the evening - 8.30pm that perhaps it had dried out some. However, I ordered the beef stir fry and it was really good,... More

Stopped for a late lunch and wasn't disappointed. We both had the special venison burger and it was delicious! Tasty venison and great chips! Dog was allowed in which was a bonus and landlord was nice an smiley. We will visit again when next down this way.

The meal was very good and the service very friendly, the only disappointment was that I did not realise that when you ask for a house red wine you are automatically served with a large (250ml) size at £5.95 rather than the bar man enquiring whether you want a medium (175ml) size at £3.40. This is poor customer service. After... More

Went here last week and had a very enjoyable meal. My first choice - roast belly pork - was unavailable, but the lamb shank I ordered instead was tender and tasty. Other members of the party had steak and ale pie and salmon, no complaints there either. The staff were friendly and helpful. Can't ask for more than that!

We traveled from the USA to Devon, England area for a wedding. Took some time to find a nice B&B and I'm glad we chose the Bickford Arms. The place has history and yet the rooms aren't old and creepy feeling. The bathrooms are modern, nice hot water with a shower/tub combo. Room was decent size with two twin beds... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch, and I was spectacularly disappointed with my food, which I couldn't eat. I ordered the Tuna special, but it came to the table dry and inedible, and the 'Mediterranean' vegetable were burnt and full of oil. Even the new potatoes that came alongside had no flavour. Much better down the road at The... More
