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.

As we are coming to the end of our holiday we decided to treat ourselves and we are so glad we did. My husband opted for the asparagus and duck egg for starters and calves liver for mains. I'm not usually keen on offal but I tried a bit of his and it was so tender I might be converted.... More

We have just returned from a two-night stay in this cosy little inn. The room was nicely furnished and the bed was comfy although a little firm. The hostess was very welcoming. We ate here on our first night. The food was good but not exceptionally so. Breakfast was also good. The omelette is particularly good - and an excellent... More

When we booked into the Normandy Arms we were a little apprehensive as all the other pubs in the area were full. To me that either means two things; it didn't have a good reputation or we were just lucky. Thankfully it was the latter! Our hosts made us feel welcome from the moment we checked in to the moment...

Delighted to see the Normandy open again. Delicious Sunday lunch with excellent service. This little gem deserves to be busier!
