Had Sunday Lunch while staying in the hotel and it was a long, lazy and enjoyable experience. There is a sunny terrace to enjoy pre lunch drinks. You have stunning Dart River views and then weather permitting, take coffee and post lunch drinks down by the river. Food and service are excellent. Memorable day.

Very slow service at all meals and not great breakfast fare. The orange juice was appalling, nothing like freshly squeezed. Some mornings a good selection of fruits other days not so much, same with pastries.

I was part of the party in a previous review by Anthony D and if anything I would say he was being far too polite and didn't even mention the service we had before dinner. We had a lovely trip down the river on the "Picnic Boat" and were in no rush to have our dinner. Having had gone to... More

I recently ate here with 7 family members for my father in laws 65th birthday. The food was very nice as was the view. Our glasses were always full (we had to pour our own) and food served hot and fresh. Putting this to the side it is just as crucial for me to have a great service experience as... More

We were staying in the hotel and dined in as there was little else open on a Monday night. Very pleased we did. The two large rooms are newly refurbished in a clean and spacious style with lovely views and bags of room. The majority of diners were the age and type who put a tie on for dinner but... More

We stayed at the hotel and had lovely freshly cooked breakfasts as well as a superb group dinner one evening. The staff were friendly and efficient and the course were excellent, considering they were doing them for 40 people. The lamb main was especially well cooked and tasty. I'd go back just to eat, if we visit Dartmouth again. Not... More

We live locally and have not eaten here since the hotel and restaurant refurbishment. Right from the start we were impressed with the welcoming and professional staff. The bar and restaurant are very comfortable with views out over the river. The clientèle were mostly hotel guests and it was nice to see many jackets and ties - definitely no ripped... More
