It was suggested by friends that we called in for lunch at this pub in a great location in Lynmouth. A "Must Try" was the Crab Sandwich on their home made bread and they were not wrong - seriously enjoyable!! There were also plenty of other good variations on offer. This is a lovely Old Pub serving a Good Pint!... More

The service by the hotel was excellent. The staff were helpful and efficient. The room had oak beams and wonky floors just like an historic building should have. The bedroom and ensuite were well appointed. The view across the bay was superb. The hotel is set across from the quayside in the beautiful village of Lynmouth. The seafood in the... More

A very nice building, full of history and character. A warm welcome on arrival in the very busy public bar area. We were shown to our room which was comfortable enough but very small. A little disappointed there was no bath but I guess we should have requested one when we booked. The bar was nice, very crowded and we... More

A tiny little thatched pub with hotel and restaurant facilities, had a quick drink here as I love old charming buildings... and this is one of them added to my list, great for a refreshment stop while looking around both villages.

We only stopped for lunch, but what a surprise. An excellent menu served in a very characterful inn. So near Exmoor National Park, and the magnificent wild coastline.. Lynmouth is truly magical, hope we can stay much longer when we return

Spent a couple of nights here on a walking holiday. Very comfortable room to the rear of the hotel so no view but made up for it with recently refurbished en suite with an extremely funky bath. Food excellent and good service.

My first visit to this lovely old inn, room was very good and food excellent, the staff were very friendly and most helpful, My room overlooked the old harbour which in any other hotel you would have to pay a lot more for. Would always recommend to friends and family.

This is our second stay here and we were not disappointed. Lovely room overlooking the harbour as before, but this time we were lucky to have an suite with a slipper bath to relax in. Again could not fault the food, we ate in the bar but could choose from the restuarant menu. Staff very helpful and most friendly. Great... More
