A single night stopover booked by my company between jobs. I guess as a centrally booked traveller I may have not got the best room (Mallard). Food good, beer, St Austell Tribute perfect! I think bits of the place may be a little in need of a refurb but still rather stay in a place like this than a chain.... More

Took a chance on leaving A38 as I did not know the area at all and was lucky to find The Abbey Inn. Lovely welcome from staff who were very helpful. Lovely setting alongside River Dart. Decent choices at reasonable prices on menu. Waited a while for our meal but were kept informed by our helpful waitress that the delay... More

Very well sited on A38, easy parking. Undoubtedly very popular during peak holiday season as there is lots of outside space and tables overlooking the river. We were fairly late arrivals for a Saturday evening meal and had not booked but the staff were very helpful in promising to keep us informed about when a table was free. Food was... More

I only spent one night here but the great location, warm hospitality and amazing food (including vegetarian options) made me wish I could stay longer! Jake and Cecilia were very accommodating, reserving me a table in the dog-friendly bar to meet a family member for dinner. My single river-view room in the attic was cosy but quite adequate, and I...

If you are driving to or from Cornwall this is a great place to have a break. I ordered burger and chips and was stunned by the freshness of it plus very natural flavours. You can sit outside right next to a major fast flowing river and enjoy nature! Pricing was OK and the service very good plus free newspapers.... More

Spent 4 nights staying here and experienced great food and hospitality. On holiday from New Zealand with my sister, we enjoyed this Inn.. to us it was quintessential England.. enjoyed every minute of our stay here, the room was large and comfortable, food fantastic and hospitality and service exceptional.

First time of visiting here. We stopped for a meal, we had to wait a long time for service. There were several staff rushing around but not paying much attention to the restaurant. Also when the plates were collected the waitress said do you want anything else? Instead of would you like to see the dessert menu. The food however... More
