The owners are dedicated to making slightly more alternative dishes rather than standard pub fayre which is lovely to see. I ate here for 2 nights as was staying on business and both nights have a great meal. It is not cheap but I guess you get what you pay for ! Breakfast was also excellent and cooked to order.

We visited whilst on holiday and felt lucky to get to visit before it closes at the end of September. The lady behind the bar who was also waitressing was very nice. The food was excellent, we all really enjoyed it. I would definitely return if it was staying open for business. Great find!

We booked a table after a friend recommended it. Found it quite hard to find as we were just visiting the area. However so pleased that we did find it as the food and service was fantastic. We had steak and lamb and both meals were excellent. Would definitely return if we are in the area again

We live locally and have been to the Normandy Arms on a number of occasions. The food is great, always freshly prepared and plenty of it. The restaurant has a very comfortable feel to it.

This is a trendy interior designed type restaurant not a country pub. The food is overpriced and not particularly high class... it's trying to be something it's not

Very stylish yet comfortable dining area, very friendly welcome and excellent service. Generous and tender cuts of roast belly pork and beef.

Booked a table for a Saturday evening. Lovely old pub in the village. The food was all excellent and good size portions (if anything a little on the large side). Prices were a bit more than usual pub grub but it did feel more like a restaurant so we didn't mind. The landlady was friendly and super helpful!

Superb food and service. Everything was perfect, and the bernaise sauce with the steak was the best I've ever had. A special mention too for their wonderful bread selection. This really is a top notch gastropub. We had a fabulous meal in this beautiful old pub, and will definitely and eagerly return.

We visited the Normandy Arms whilst staying in Dartmouth. It was well worth the 20 minute drive out of town! There were 8 of us celebrating my grandma's 90th birthday. We were very well looked after and the food was fantastic. It was clearly all local and the dishes were so well thought out and put together, all the different... More

Great menu, great food, great service, reasonable price. Lacks a bit of atmosphere but this husband and wife team certainly know how to run a restaurant.
