Stayed here the night of the 14th May after having to cancle two previous bookings due to ill health. Only live 20 minutes drive away but well worth the experience. Resturant first class and B and B very very good. Rooms spotless and top notch breakfast. Reka and Andrew are superb hosts and I cannot fault the business. If you... More

Ate in the Normandy Arms last night with my daughter and really enjoyed the experience - a lot! The duck with a wild garlic sauce was just divine and my 12 year-old devoured a ribeye steak and loved it. And then we had some pudding to share - a chocolate cheesecake with ice cream - all inn-made of course -... More

We booked for 6.30 for four. The service was pleasant and a good balance of attentiveness. The food was excellent . For starters; pressed ham hock and liver parfait were favourites, main courses; rabbit was sensational and plaice excellent. We paid £155 in total for 4 x 3 course meals plus bottle of wine and cocktails.

We had booked a table & received a good welcome. We had pre dinner drinks & waited about 35 minutes to then be seated for our food. The venison was excellent, full of flavour. The accompanying wine was also very good. But then, the service was painfully slow. A further 55 minutes passed before our pudding choice of cheese was... More

Visited the NA this evening after such great reviews and had a table booked in advance. After placing our order in the 'drinks area' we then waited 55 minutes to be seated which was rather annoying since the table was 'supposed' to be pre-booked. The wait between courses was quite lengthy also! Had the duck parfait to start, followed by... More

We were staying at the Great Western hotel near Blackawton and wanted somewhere to eat on the Saturday night. I checked Trip Advisor thinking that the best options would be in Dartmouth but was pleased that the number one was just a mile away from the hotel. We started with potted local crab and duck pate on brioche. Both dishes... More

Visited here for a birthday with family. Its a small and cosy but still lovely atmosphere. We arrived and were invited to sit by the fire, look at the menu and enjoy a nice drink. When our starters were ready we were seated to our table. The presentation of all the starters were beautiful and they did not disappoint in... More

Warm welcome and a comfortable atmosphere, The food and wine were delicious and the cooking puts many so called "restaurants" to shame. What a pity that we live so far away - I could eat here often. The four of us had different plates and each agreed their choices were excellent.
