Stayed here last week for the second time, our previous stay being in April in the pouring rain. This time the weather was gorgeous and enabled my husband and I to sit outside and have a glass or two of wine whilst watching the salmon leap about in the river. We arrived in the afternoon and had a drink and... More

I have eaten at this pub on many occasions over the last few years, but since it's refurbishment , the menu has become tired. No curry, no pasta dishes ,no risotto, lots of burgers ugh. So tonight was my last time there until the menu gets updated . It's a great location but the food needs to be more interesting... More

We passed this beautiful establishment a few months ago but did not have time to stop. We promised to visit at soonest opportunity. We have since visited it twice, once for lunch and last week for dinner. Was not disappointed at all. It is a Marsden outlet so the fare is always good, but the quality of staff and service... More

A little shopping in Tiverton panier market then here for lunch. We sat outside watching the River Exe quietly flowing past as we ate smoked salmon and prawn and crab salad. Our fellow diners respected the peace and quiet as we drank chilled dry white. Perfect. Wonderful. Thank you. An amazing location for a delightful pub.

If only the food lived up to the setting... We were a party of 14, but booked as such. Chaos and confusion reigned. The food, when it arrived, was lacklustre. The staff have obviously lost faith in the system, and feel they have no control over anything. Marstons management, get your finger out, and sort it. Lovely setting . Lovely... More

Stayed for two nights and used as a base to explore the area for which it’s ideally located and within easy reach of Exeter and Torquay etc. Our room was one of the ones towards the back of the building. It was large and had patio doors leading onto a terrace with a view over a lawn area. All the... More

Sunday early evening family meal out sat in the window overlooking the river what a great view had a walk outside along the water front and on a sunny day it's a great place to watch the world go by so for location can't beat it. Plenty of outside seating and is recommended you go early as got very busy... More

We made to feel very welcome on arrival. Our room was in one of the lodges at the far end of the car park and, although a little dark, had everything we required for our stay, including our own patio area backing on to the river. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the young waiting staff were very... More

Easy to find, the location certainly has the wow factor, grass area from the restaurant leads down to the banks of the river Exe, if you're lucky you get to see a heron standing in the water looking for fish, kingfishers flying around ... The accommodation was ok, all usual stuff in the room, hairdryer, toiletries, tea / coffee /... More

Stunning setting overlooking the river and beautifully maintained gardens. Accommodation was a little disappointing as the toilet made noises continuously and the TV was a nightmare to use. Breakfast was a major let down. We arrived at breakfast at 8.50am..it ended at 9.30am..nothing was replenished, no plates for bread, no bowls for cereals, one small teapot... Both coffee pots were...
