Four of us sat outside for lunch today. The garden area is very big, with lots of tables and an outside bar. We had 3 fish and chips with puréed peas which were delicious and a generous portion. We also had a salad with new potatoes and seafood with aioli and bread, which was also tasty and well presented. Everyone... More

Lovely friendly pub - very busy when we visited but staff efficient and helpful. Food and drink choices excellent - nice garden too - lovely Pimms on a warm summer evening - Young staff team very friendly and welcoming. Food arrived promptly despite the place heaving - Definitely worth a return visit or two or three even !!

Good food, and friendly service in this thatched pub on the outskirts of Totnes. It was quite busy when we arrived, but they found room for us and made us welcome. The food was delicious too.

We've been to the Cott before and had mixed results from very good to mediocre, this occasion was mediocre. I don't think the food itself was a problem for any one on our table others than my gnocchi was very rubbery! But at least was very hot and the plate was hot. I believe the rest had plates were lukewarm... More

For loving dog owners, it's always a good sign to arrive somewhere and have the dog receive as big a welcome as you do! Everyone at the Cott Inn was very helpful and friendly, and, of course, our dog was the centre of much attention (other from the cat, who chose to go outside!). The food was excellent, and reasonably... More

We visited the Cott inn for a second time when we returned to Devon this year and it didn't fail to disappoint. After arriving there after a long day tracking around and hungry they somehow managed to find us a table in the restaurant despite it being peak dinner time and full to the brim! Everyone was lovely and the... More

Following the suggestions of our landlady we visited the Cott Inn for dinner. It was a Wednesday, but still chocablock full, so booking a table is advisable! The atmosphere of the place is just quintessentially old- world English and food and service were excellent- highly recommended!
