We happened upon the Durant Arms accidentally while looking for another place, and we are so glad we did. The welcome, the food, the friendliness and the whole atmosphere of the place were tremendous. Our dog was also made so welcome. We didn't want to leave to return to the B&B that we were already booked in at for the...

We've been coming to the Durant Arms on and off for the past 15 years - always a good stopping off point for lunch from the nearby Sharpham Vineyard. Today was our first visit under the new management of Alan and Lesley and we enjoyed it immensely. We were pleased to find the pub is now dog friendly and we...

4 from Cornworthy ate here last night. All we can say was it was an excellent meal, good wine & all very reasonably priced. We choose the lamb curry, lasagne & duck comfit, but all the menu was tempting. We will all return.

Lovely country pub. Good dining. Breakfast very good with plenty of choice. Room clean and comfortable. The staff, particularly the lady who served breakfast, the barman in the evening and the owners were friendly and efficient. I will not hesitate to book accommodation here again.

Great place to stay and beautiful village. Staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was very good and the service extremely warm and friendly especially the lady who served our breakfast. We stayed here whilst attending a wedding in the village. Pot luck choice but could'nt have been happier. Would definitely recommend.

The Durant Arms reopened following refurbishment on 8 March 2014 and deserves recommending for food, atmosphere and quality. Original flagstone floors have been restored. Log fires, one with a woodburner, entice neighbours, visitors, walkers, bikers and stretched out collies. Vintage jukebox in neighbouring room adds character and fun. New owners, Alan, Lesley and Chef Simon have firmly established themselves in...

On our way back down to Cornwall after spending Christmas with relatives in the north of England, my wife and I decided to have a short break somewhere near to Totnes. I found the Durant Arms by an online search and booked three nights between Christmas and New Year. Unknown to us at the time of booking was that the...

Visited with my wife, brother and his family. The new landlord has only been in since Dec 2013, with his son as the chef. The food was excellent and the pub has a very homely feel about it. We had the wild mushroom risotto, fish pie, steak kidney & otter ale pie, and apple crumble. All of which were delicious....

Pleasant hotel set in the very small village of Ashprington, about 10 minutes drive from Totnes. You will need a car or bike as very little public transport, no shops in the village. However the DA is a cosy place to stay, we stayed in a part outbuilding which looked a year or two old only. Limited WiFi and only...
