“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We have been to the Trout Inn for a meal some three times now since it re opened late last year. On each occassion the meal served was not as good as the previous time. Service good & friendly - a great pity for us as we live near by & would have considered this as our local.

“Great meal but massive letdown with dessert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Went for sunday lunch as a family, lovely friendly staff but seem to be an awful lot of staff who don't seem to know what each other is doing! Very slow service. Sunday roast was delicious but a bit cold. Dessert menu was a big let down but we ordered 3 chocolate cherry gateaux. Very very disappointing, although homemade it wasn't good at all. We were surprised at how quiet it was but overall felt main meal was very good value for money. Our advice to them is to get better desserts and to look at staffing.

“Service second to none”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Dined here when recently staying at Bickleigh Castle with my partner. The service here was second to none and we wanted for nothing and had everything served to us from food to drink. The food was divine and we both enjoyed our experience. Would definitely revisit if we were back in the area.
