“What a gorgeous Inn X”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Paul, my boyfriend, booked us into The Nobody Inn for my birthday treat last weekend. We had the most wonderful time. Our room was delightful, comfy bed and plenty of room in both bedroom and en-suite shower room. The food was delicious with lots of choice, the dining area full of wonderful ambiance, and to top it all our lovely landlady helped some very old friends to surprise me with their appearance on saturday evening. The weather was wonderful for us, as we love walking and the area is absolutely perfect for that. We certainly intend to visit again, soon. Thank you : ) XXX ps we even left with half a dozen free range eggs as a gift! x

What a gem of a place this is. The village of Doddiscombsleigh is like an oasis, and only 6 miles from Exeter. The Nobody Inn is already acclaimed but I felt I just have to sing their praises as well.
We and two other couples had the pleasure of staying in their wonderful bedrooms last night, comfort and attention to detail is priority at the Nobody. The food is wonderful, good English down to earth food. The breakfasts were excellent. The young couple who run this place know what they are doing, perfect.
We shall be back.

Room Tip: They all have masses of character.

This is the second time we have stayed here and there will be a third. The food has actually improved, and it was great the first time, so we were in for a treat !
The staff were very experienced and knowledgeable, and made our stay a very enjoyable one, with just the right amount of service without being too over attentive.
The rooms were quirky and comfortable, the breakfasts tasty and the evening meals went above expectations.

Room Tip: rooms one or three are our favourites, but beware of the dip in room one!!

Lovely bedrooms, cosy fires, great wines, kind and courteous service, and excellent food -the Nobody Inn has it all (including a whopping great whisky list!) - I don't think you can ask for much more.

We had been hoping to go for a night away at the Nobody Inn for some time and decided to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Our host and hostess could not have been more friendly or attentive. The room was fantastic (with some very funky towel folding) and finally, the food was just superb. We could not have had a better time - thanks so much for helping us to celebrate!

A nice quiet country location but a bustling pub full of atmosphere. The service is excellent, (thank you Sue,Tim and Marzie) food delicious (that steak and ale pie with PROPER short crust pastry) and a selection of wine, whiskey, brandy and ale to please all comers. Lovely room and bed gave us two excellent nights sleep (and we live in the country) followed by a cooked to order breakfast. We had excellent service on Friday night in the restaurant when it was quiet followed by the same excellent service Saturday night when the restaurant was full. So good we have already booked to go back again in March. Can't wait.

Room Tip: Book early to make sure you get one!

We booked as a party of 5 for a post Christmas family meal. The service and information about the menu was excellent, we all decided to treat ouselves and have the venison - literally the best we have ever had and that was five people! The boys tried the whiskeys which they said were tremendous and the cheese choice is to die for. The service was excellent and they were more than happy to supply more biscuits as the quantity of cheese was too much for the boys to fit onto the first supply!!
All in all a fabulous place to eat and our friends have all booked to stay there soon for the weekend when they come down for a cycling holiday.

Room Tip: Did not stay so cannot comment
