There is a breakfast meeting at Trimstone at 7am on Thursday mornings when a group of business people get together to discuss topics that business people wish to discuss. At a recent meeting taxation was on the agenda. What's more a good cooked breakfast is also provided for a small fee. Go along and take a look.

Had an evening meal in this lovely old building. Beautiful location complete with resident peacock. Wonderful food and first class wines from an extensive menu, charming service in a very pleasant restaurant.

Dear Comfortablynum We are very pleased that you had a good time with us when you dined here. I am sorry to say that Kevin the Peacock is not on the menu, even if he is in his prime! I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the food and had good and attentive service from the staff. We... More

Apparently untrained staff, chef running reception, tired unloved building & it was supposed to be a unique dining experience. Limited menu, food ok but overpriced. We could have had a better meal for half the price elsewhere. Waiter did his best & helped out where he could.

How dare you - such precocious, jumped-up opinions. Do you really think we want or need your type here? The answer is no. How dare you criticise my son who is one of the most efficient front-house staff in the hospitality line going. As for prices, I think you were expecting five stars for your £57 for the two of...

Stopped for Afternoon tea. Telephoned prior to arriving and was advised that we could come along. Arrived within the hour, asked for an afternoon tea, was given a menu which didnt have it on there, waited whilst one was printed out. Were left in a lounge area which is quite dark and dated so asked if we could sit in... More

Dear Poolieljhb Thank you for your review though of course we were disappointed to learn of your dissatisfaction. We always welcome fair and constructive criticism however. I do need to correct a couple of crucial things but before doing that, I wish to apologise for any part of the experience which was not as we intend it to be. You... More

My wife and I and our 2 children visited this place last year. We came across it while driving and saw a sign advertising Sunday lunches, so we thought we'd have lunch there. The service was poor. We were given a menu on arrival and asked what we wanted to drink. We got our drinks immediately. We waited 20 minutes... More

Unfortunately there is something fishy about this 'review'. We have been closed to casual full restaurant Sunday lunches for about three years now, only offering them either to bookings of 8 or more or for special occasions like Mother's Day. The 'advertising flags' (banners) to which this person refers were removed subsequent to that decision. TripAdvisor demands that a review... More

Spent a very relaxing afternoon having a lovely cream tea with a large group of ladies. Great home made scones, lashings of cream and jam and plenty of tea and coffee. We were looked after very well and were given time and space to enjoy eachothers company. Thank you

I hope that this type of event will be available again. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the wines available were very palatable. I'd go to another event like this.

We only ate in the restaurant but as the owner is the hotel owner I think you should read this before visiting! Read to the end - you would think I was on candid camera (or kitchen nightmares)!!!

Despite reporting this woman to the company in advance of the anticipated vitriol under its 'Blackmail' policy, TripAdvisor has not removed this review. So here is my response.

I made a return trip to North Devon on business and thought I'd treat myself and do the same with this Hotel and it's excellent restaurant.

This place is close to us but we had never been there for dinner. Vegetarian main course option was just a basic pasta bake....not what you want on a night out. So I had veggie spring rolls from the starter menu instead. Salad probably just emptied from a pack of a supermarket leaves....very dull. My husband's steak was well cooked... More
