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

We stopped into the Cott Inn, a family of 4 with two small boys after a 24hr trip to Woodlands. As you can not get quality food at Woodlands and everything comes with lashings of brown or red sauce. Our bodies were desperate for nutrients. This is what we got at the Cott Inn nice vegetables gorgeous gravy that had... More

Friendly pub, staff helpful and polite, service a little slow, but the pub was busy. Went in a party of six. Most of us went for the soup which was delicious, but very small portion with one small white roll one small roll of butter and a bowl of soup which hardly came half way up the small bowl. I... More

We stopped by on the off chance last Saturday night en route to salcombe, very weary travellers. Luckily we snapped up their last table and were treated to the most amazing meal. My other half says the crevettes are to die for, and I can highly recommend the beef and ale pie. Today, on our way home we thought we'd... More

I ate on my own on two successive nights at a weekend whilst staying locally for a course. Despite being busy on the first night, the friendly, efficient and very helpful staff found me a table and made sure that I was well looked after. There was a very nice atmosphere in the pub, the food was imaginative and delicious... More

We had a very good meal in this lovely old pub which has a restful pleasant atmosphere. The service was good and we were given a table in a good situation. It's always a joy to come back to The Cott Inn, especially now the menu has improved since we were there a couple of years before. It is good... More

Travelling around country lanes can be daunting if you aren't a local, but this restaurant is worth the trouble. Quaint and authentic setting with a great menu offering plenty of choice. We ordered four different meals and all were excellent.

My husband and I went for Sunday lunch. Beautiful, tasty and tender beef; variety of fresh vegetables; unfortunately, dry and anaemic roast potatoes! The waitress agreed with me when I explained why we hadn't eaten them and Mark was very apologetic and didn't charge for my husband's dessert. However, still enjoyed ourselves and returned the next evening with 2 visitors... More
