On arrival you are greeted by smiling bar staff eager to serve you. We chose to go on a Tuesday night because it is Fish & Chip night and we were not disappointed. Locally caught fish that was beautifully cooked with a light crisp batter, served with homemade chips and mushy peas and absolutely gorgeous tartar sauce. It was superb... More

Been to Devon every year for a number of years now and we decided to take a drive out to find somewhere different to eat. What a lucky find, The Cott Inn is a lovely place to eat - the food is absolutely delicious, the service and staff excellent; so good that we went back twice in a week. Thoroughly... More

Arrived on a very busy Sunday lunch without reservation. A table was found and we had an excellent lunch. Service was very good.

Good selection of local food and produce. Was very busy which was a good sign. Nice outside area when the weather permits. Staff could have been more attentive but good food nonetheless.

We visited this pub a few times on the late May bank holiday weekend. We both had an excellent meal there on the Saturday night. The food was well cooked and the service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Definitely recommend either for a meal or just a drink.

We visit the Cott often, either for a meal or a drink, on our way home from dog walking on the nearby beautiful Dartington Estate. The ambience of this traditional country inn invites you to want to return again and again. Food is good and there are rooms too if you want to stay.

Five of us had a meal here on Sunday evening - efficient friendly service and very good food in a traditional thatched inn - would definitely recommend. They also have rooms to let.

Enjoyed a great meal and very friendly service today. A lot of the menu was locally sourced produce which we all appreciated. The bear I had was local too. Really superb!

The Cott Inn is an incredibly beautiful thatched building with bright and cheerful hanging baskets - quintessentially English. We decided to go there for Sunday dinner because of reviews we'd read locally and because of the look/sound of the place online. We'd booked a table a few hours before arriving and felt very welcome from the moment we got there.... More
