The old pub/restaurant used to have a carvery and now that it has thankfully gone following a change of ownership is serving very good meals in a pleasant atmosphere. Pasta was tasty and fresh; salmon was very good and a game stew was excellent. Good beer from the bar and a reasonable wine list. The gents toilet is outside and... More

Not for us, average food, lovely atmosphere, too crowded. Better if you are local. Friendly, couldn't park, no tables.

This was my first visit to the Cott Inn with friends who had been there in the past and said it was good. Unfortunately I was to be disappointed. Although we had booked a table for my friends wife's birthday,the staff had to look for a table to put us on. We were taken care of for drinks,then are food... More

Have just returned from spending a weekend at the Cott Inn. From the start of our visit to the end all staff from the cleaner to the manager were very friendly, efficient and welcoming. We felt like regular valued customers from the moment we arrived. Evening meals and breakfasts were excellent and supplemented by the well kept beers and wines.... More

We were a big party on Sunday night with a large wheelchair and two young children for a 70th birthday. The food was superb and the attention to detail and welcome was second to none. Anton was incredibly attentive in finding out our requirements before the event and then checking throughout that we had what we wanted. Looking forward too... More

A pub that offers good surroundings, good food and good service is what I look for and is what we got on three recent visits to The Cott. Made to feel most welcolm and well looked after from arrival to departure. Best to have a hard look at the specials board before ordering, it suppliments the everyday menu with interesting... More

I had a Birthday Lunch on Sunday with some friends at The Cott Inn Dartington. It was a very pleasurable experience. Log Fires blazing, window sill vases filled with winter twigs, fresh roses on the polished wooden tables all made for a lovely feeling of a Traditional Country Pub. No music, no tinsel, just good old fashioned caring and service... More

When I lived in Totnes, the two or three times I ate at the Cott Inn left me unimpressed, however now this is under new management, the food is really fantastic - a varied and well thought out menu, the attentive service and the traditional old English pub surroundings provided a great dining experience. Impressed - I'll return!

Went with a large group and all seemed very happy with the food. I had a very tasty and unusual butternut squash, blue cheese and walnut Wellington. A first for me. Great flavours and textures. My wife had venison sausages, she likes veggie food but said her sausages were even better than the Wellington. I tried the sausages and they... More
