We went into the pub/hotel's older bar on the right hand side as you enter the front door for lunch. A busy area with quite a few people eating and drinking making a good atmosphere. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The decor was superb, swords etc on the wall and a welcoming warm fire. We ordered fish and...

For the second time, we took advantage of the Royal Castle Hotel January half price sale. A very comfortable bedroom overlooking the river Dart and boat float. The only hotel I have stayed in so far that provides a mini cafetiere and real coffee along with the tea and teapot. I do not know what new chef they have but...

The fish and chips were excellent, as were their burgers, however it is difficult to ignore the...

Stopped into this hotel to try their tea and scones as we heard that the Devon Creme tea was the best. The wait staff was very friendly as eight of us gathered around two small tables for tea time. It was absolutely lovely. I would stay here when I go back to Devon.
