The food was cooked to perfection with a good choice particularly at breakfast. Rooms were nice and clean and enough choice of drinks to keep you in the bar. Overall a nice trip in a nice quiet village.

Located on the southern edge of Dartmoor, South Brent is ideal for walks to Avon Dam or to the Three Barrows. Our room was spacious, very clean with a memory-foam mattress so we had a comfortable night's sleep. Thick curtains kept the light out in the morning. The bathroom was also clean and spacious with plenty of free toiletries provided.... More

We stayed at a gorgeous self catering place in Aish and this pub was recommended by them for food and so on Friday 27th April, having had a wonderful day out for my birthday and looking for somewhere nice to have a meal to round off the day, we called in here. The decor was good, as was the atmosphere... More

Our room was well decorated and clean, however, it was very hot even with the window open all night and the mattress was poor. We ate pub rather than restaurant food, the waiting staff were excellent as was the food. On asking about having breakfast we were told that 7.30 was too early as they wouldn't serve until 8.30 so...

The quality of the room,food and beer were all excellent,and far exceeded what could reasonably be expected for the price. The breakfast menu was one of the best we have come accross anywhere!

Stopped by here on the way to Plymouth for a lunch and we were not disappointed! The outside looks a little shabby but inside has been refurbished - plenty of real ale on offer but the best thing was the food. My other half had the asparagus salad which looked great and I had chicken korma (two large pieces of... More

After a wet cold walking day on Dartmoor , this place was a welcomed warm retreat. Great room (4) with a powerful, hot shower (careful with the fire alarm!). We ate in the pub and the food and ales were superb even for Camra pub. We would stay again next time we are in that neck of the woods.

You have to park around the corner in a public car park but it is free. The room had two sky lights without blinds so you are woken up early with the natural light outside. We stayed on a Saturday night when the Inn is at is busiest. It was popular with the locals so much so there was a... More
