We ate here this evening, a party of 4, after completing the round-robin trip from Totnes....what a wonderful choice it was! Our meals were delicious, the camembert starter was tasty and well presented but the battered fish was the best fish any of us have ever eaten. Crisp, light batter with no trace of grease, perfectly cooked moist fish, lovely... More

We arrived early and had a drink sitting by the log fire. Our waiter was exceptional in his manner, he was humourous and helpful. Even though the restaurant was really busy he had time to interact with us and ensure we enjoyed our meal. Really tasty food and good quantities.

Lovely old pub, food was fine, if not inspired. The welcome on a busy Sunday was warm and friendly and the staff attentive. The only slight downside for us oldies was the backwards and forwards past our table, including banging into it, of a group of children who seemed to have the run of the place. Otherwise, we enjoyed our... More

Been to The Cott a few times as I have relatives in the village. On this occasion we visited on a Sunday evening over the bank holiday weekend and it was very busy, but not uncomfortably so. The building is amazing with a newly thatched roof which gives it all the charm of a classic English country pub. The staff... More

I can not thank the team enough. Right from the start they helped me plan my gathering. A special set menu which gave everyone a good selection, help with dairy free options and kids catered for as well. Service on the day was excellent. Would highly recommend this place to everyone. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable weekend (30th - 31st August ) at this beautiful old thatched Inn. Manager / owner Mark and his team made us feel very welcome. The food is very good and reasonably priced and on the Sunday we were treated to some great live jazz / soul music courtesy of Maggie Reeday. Very... More

After a spot of shopping we were a bit peckish so decided to go for lunch and came across this rather charming restaurant, the outside of the building looks amazing and is matched by the olde worlde interior. The prices of the food are in line with the location/quality and service that we received on the day of our visit.... More

This popular pub exceeded our expectations. Sitting outside during perfect weather we thoroughly enjoyed the watercress & apple salad, lemon sole and creme brûlée. The flowers surrounding the pub added to the charm.

Visited for dinner during their recent beer festival; they were serving a BBQ outside and also had the restaurant open for non-festival-goers. Despite the busy environment the staff were extraordinarily efficient and friendly - one of them said she was coming to the end of a 12 hour day and she was still energetic and helpful . Food is just... More

Having just hit my head on the door frame on the way in to the 'Cott Inn' - not having seen the sign above the door which said in bold letters 'Duck or Grouse' - the sight of a broad welcoming smile on the face of 'our host', in front of a very well equipped bar, soon had me feeling... More
