We stayed at the Tradesmans with three friends and had all of their three rooms. All the rooms were great and ours, which was the largest, was fantastic. Beautiful bathroom, great bed and a a lovely quirky building.
The staff were helpful and i dont understand what some of the negative reviews are on about because they couldnt do enough for us, even the cleaner asked if we were happy with everything.
The food....oh the food. It was sensational. The breakfast, at which you get all the toast you can eat, cereal and your choice of cooked breakfast was lovely and it was great to have the whole pub to ourselves. In the evening the chefs really turn it on and serve great local food cooked to perfection. The fish and chips were some of the best I have ever tasted and the beef was divine. The best bit was the presentation and the little quirks such as vinegar in spray bottles! I have never seen this before but its great, much better than those cumbersome jug things you get in most pubs.
The setting of the pub is idyllic overlooking a picture postcard village green and within walking distance of the superb Slapton Sands and Torcross. It was so quiet at night and when the sun came out it was the perfect location. Only a short drive from Dartmouth too without the hustle and bustle.
We had such a nice weekend here and i thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a proper traditional english weekend away in the south west.
Big thank you to Cathie, Mike and their staff and my complements to their chefs
