Good Hotel Guide Review

A ‘time capsule of ancient England’, Sue Burdge’s venerable former dwelling house has been the village pub and hub since 1837. ‘An exquisite example of a Devon inn’, its ‘beguiling’ bar all ‘low beams and parchment-stained walls, prints and pictures, guns, swords and old maps’. One reader was reminded of a film set – a Carry On, to judge by a report from other regular contributors, who squashed into the smallest room, with a four-foot bed and ‘ancient mattress’; ‘by moving a chest of drawers we pulled the bed out far enough to get in on both sides’. A larger, ‘still quite small’ room, has ‘a nice outlook and a big, comfortable bed’, a shower room. But the best choice is large and still very affordable, with an ‘enormous bed’ and ‘wonderfully appointed bathroom’. All rooms have a decanter of sherry. Staff are welcoming. The list of whiskies runs to hundreds. In a ‘bar-cum-dining room area’, food can be somewhat hit and miss. The steak and ale NoBody pie was ‘heavenly’, while haddock and chips had ‘soggy batter’. Breakfast is ‘superb’, the experience ‘memorable’. (EM, and others)

Guest comments

'The room was quite small but with a nice outlook and a big, comfortable bed. The bathroom was small, shower only, anybody over 6 foot will struggle. Dinner was "pub grub" and a bit disappointing. ' - Peter Anderson - June, 2017
'We enjoyed dinner, an interesting menu. But our room was very small and the narrow bed had a lumpy mattress. ' - Jill & Mike Bennett - May, 2017
'A wonderful pub with fabulous food. Stupendous breakfasts served in a charming room. Our bedroom was delightful. The dine and stay deal is amazing value and the dinner is scrumptious ' - AK - January, 2016
