4 adults and one child weekday lunch was a delight at this ancient restaurant/pub . A huge menu choice with plenty of specials and great beers is on offer at this beauty of a building . Beams , old doors and windows , fireplaces big enough to hide in ! This place was a joy from start to finish .... More

A popular pub packed to the rafters even at 2pm on a Sunday, nevertheless the friendly barman managed to conjure up a table for us, brought the drinks to the table and took our food order, in very little time our food arrived, everything was lovely and we found out why the place was so busy. Many thanks for looking... More

Very friendly welcome by all the staff. Especially with our very enthusiastic dog. Had a great pulled pork burger, my wife loved her fish and chips. Thanks

Having not been to The Cott Inn for a meal for several years, a friend and I braved it today. And we were so glad we did. There was nothing at all we could fault: the atmosphere was warm and inviting; the staff were all friendly, helpful and efficient; the menu was varied with plenty of choice for vegetarians; the...

December 30th is a bad time to have a birthday - so many places are quite because of the Christmas and New Year celebrations. However, the Cott Inn had a good buzz at lunch-time, with tasty food, friendly staff and a good atmosphere. It's an old thatched pub, so you shouldn't expect the interior decor to be modern, but those... More

We went to The Cott Inn with family, and our two pet dogs.. The staff were excellent, and our original table that had been held for us-was situated next to a couple with a dog who wasn't very relaxed, so they kindly moved us a little distance away, so that our dogs could relax. The food was lovely, and the... More

I've lived in Totnes for nearly. 30 yrs and finally this lovely pub is realising it's potential. Visited the other night for dinner. Lovely warm assorted bread and dip starter with olives and very nice main courses . The staff were very friendly and I don't say that lightly being a Yorkshireman who will say it as it is. I'm...

Thank you for making me and my family very welcome yesterday. We've never been to your pub before but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal, especially the game stew and steak and ale pie. Look forward to visiting again soon.

Second time we have eaten here and again had the lovely battered fish, chunky chips and minted mushy peas. Someone had forgotten to heat the peas up, but they were replaced quickly. Lovely staff, friendly and helpful, and stunningly beautiful surroundings. Essential to book if you want a table in the cosy bar.

Wonderful atmosphere, friendly welcome, helped us find a seat, food great and we didn't really want to leave. Open fire. Xmas lunch groups were in and we still received great customer service.
