What a find! A very good room where they allow a dog. The food and the beer were fantastic. My wife says the Pinot was also very good. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. There are lovely walks to the River Nadder.

Me and my husband stayed here for an overnight stay and dinner on our travels and it was superb!! From the moment we arrived the staff were fantastic. A small country pub with amazing food and a good wine selection. We stayed in room 3 which was a good size with very comfortable beds. I would highly recommend making a... More

Had a fantastic lunch. Scallops perfectly cooked. Tried the chicken & rhubarb....was dubious, but with all the delicious additions on the plate it worked! Garlic mash a must. Creme brûlée with blueberries - heaven in a pot. Will definatley return, it's a tricky one to find but so worth the effort. Boys behind the bar & serving food, very charming.

Great room, wonderful food and such friendly people. We had a lovely stay. The evening menu was great and all courses were 5 star. Breakfast included had heaps of choices and was excellent. My only complaint was that the wifi did not work in our room.

The food was best I've tasted lots of choice and all local produce. Very friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. The room was very plush and very comfortable , one... More

My husband and I stayed two nights recently on a walking tour through the southwest country. We stayed in a room just above the pub which is a welcoming and lively place on a Friday evening. It's quite old (14th century) and the ceilings low so head ducking is in order if you're on the tall side. A lovely breakfast... More

We stayed her for one night. Not the cheapest around, but well worth the money. The pub is quaint, oldy worldy, & the room was lovely. The food was excellent & the service was very good. All in all 10/10!

Food is a little on the expensive side, but well worth the money. All our food was delicious and all the meals came with carefully thought through sides. Service was great. Book ahead to be sure of getting a table, especially on weekends or if you are a large party

We wished to take an American visitor to a real English country pub and this is the real deal, 14th century, thatched roof and open fire. The food is excellent and good value (main course and drinks for 6 people was about £130). We visited on a Monday evening and didn't expect the place to be busy, but it was.... More
