we went here when on holiday in Hope Cove. At first reluctantly as had a bad experience years ago when we were refused a drink because we weren't eating. But that was under a previous management and we were so glad we ignored our past experience. It has now a very cosy friendly atmosphere. The food was excellent and the... More

We stayed for one night and on arrival the owners were very welcoming, helpful and inviting. The pub itself doesn't have great kerb appeal, but inside it's fine and it has parking to the rear. Our room was OK, basic but clean, although I feel overpriced at £80 compared to other places we have stayed in the region. The en-suite... More

TERRY T, Owner at The Old Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments, however, we would like to add that the loud music was a private party for a local residents 60th birthday. We do not normally have live music. Thank you for staying, we are looking at the room but we cannot see any peeling paint on the ceiling, which is quite strange! Many thanks Terry &... More

We visited here in the evening for a drink as we were staying in a hotel in the village. They had live music which was great. It has a good atmosphere and is clean and tidy. We also came back for breakfast the next day which was delicious and inexpensive. The owners were very friendly and all the staff were... More

My wife and I had a lovely weekend stay at the Old Inn. The price was really good for the area and the room was comfortable and clean. The hosts Terry and Kathy were really nice. Nothing was too much to ask of them. Terry gave us some much welcomed tips advice on exploring the local area. The vegetarian breakfast... More

I stayed at the Old Inn on the weekend of 13th to 15th Nov when Devon was hit by a magnificent storm. My cliff walk to Salcombe might have been a miserable affair had it not been for the warmth & hospitalty offered by Terry & Kathy. Their advice on the route to follow during such dangerous conditions was invaluable... More

Kathy and her staff run the pub well but the B and B side of the business has a long way to go. We enjoyed the pub, the atmosphere and food were good. The rooms are basic. The traffic noise does not help. The tea and coffee making facilities were missing, the shower head was filthy and the bed uncomfortable.... More
