Stopped here for some light refreshment. This beautiful white washed thatched pub is impressive when you park in the spacious car park outside. Inside is exactly what you would expect. A lovely traditional pub with wood beams and bar. The service was good and readily available wi fi. Excellent range of food with blackboard specials supporting the normal menu. It... More

I revisited the Cott Inn near the Dartington Cider Press just outside Totnes on Saturday and was pleasantly surprised at how pretty it was. (the weather helped of course!) It is a lovely thatched pub and the display of flowers and hanging baskets were wonderful. They have also built a lovely garden area with lots of seating and covered against... More

Such a brilliant pub. From the moment that we walked through the door we received the warmest welcome, and not just us, our dog Haggis too!! The food was exceptional, and surpassed all expectations when it comes to 'pub grub!' More like find dining at a pub price tag! Can't recommend enough. Thank you to all the team - Haggis,... More

From the friendly, warm welcome I knew that we were going to enjoy our visit. Extensive menu making choices difficult. I had read some reviews criticising the slow service, but given the care that obviously goes into the preparation of each dish, this is acceptable. I just could not fault my lunch, certainly the best meal enjoyed during my two... More

Enjoyed a meal here a couple of nights ago. A long wait on starters but very apologetic servers made up for it. Really enjoyed my crispy duck egg for starter and tortellini for main, fresh and tasty flavours. We felt like we missed out on the atmosphere a little as we were in the back room, on our own by...

A group of workers and partners were meeting to celebrate recent birthdays. Having ordered drinks, we were told that food was not possible outside. The outside area is also only serving Tapas outside on Thursdays and Fridays after 6pm..... not on Sunday's or others.... surely a waste of a space and money spent on the operation. The space itself is... More
