“Thoroughly enjoyed our meals!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We stayed at East Allington last month and we dined at The Fortescue Arms one evening. The locals were very welcoming, the staff could not have been more helpful and the food was very very nice and good value. Thank You Very Much x

Dined here several times in the last week and without fail the Fortescue Arms delivered great service and really good food. From a Sunday roast to a family dinner during the week the food was excellent from lamb shank to simple local ham. If you are In the East Allington area ths pub is must use destination.

Booked this for a short break. Nice large comfy clean rooms at a good price. A little bar noise but minimal from my room. Good parking. Great breakfast and friendly staff. A good base for south Devon.

We stayed at the Fortescue Arms after having our camping trip in Cornwall cut short due to the poor weather over the Jubilee weekend.

Our hosts were very friendly and made us feel at home, the cosy bar was very comfortable and the local ales top notch. The food from the kitchen was also excellent, will happily visit again!

Also, our room was very light and comfortable, and reasonably priced.

Our second visit , made to feel most welcome. Beer excellent, food also, we were brilliantly pampered by the owners, as was our four legged spaniel, who had Sunday "lunch* saved for her, and sausage for breakfast. Very relaxed atmosphere and very friendly locals. Well worth a visit. we will be returning

Great welcome on arrival - very friendly and helpful throughout the evening - nothing was too much trouble. Excellent food - good value for money. Very pleasant surroundings - open fire, nicely laid out restaurant with plenty of room between tables.
Well kept real ale - good wine list. Menu was specific to the evening, but normal menu looked just as good.
Only disappointment - we're only here on holiday and its too far to come on a regular basis.
