Went here with my wife for an early Saturday meal. Its not the first visit so know what I was going too. The place was still fairly busy for the time of day, but we were seated and looked after almost immediately. The food at this restaurant is well cooked and tasty, and the bonus is that you can have...

The evening meal was good but when i tired to book an early start i was informed breakfast did'nt start until 07:00. I arrived at 07:00 and the lights were all out still, by the time i was served i was late for a meeting. Whilst rushing out the external doors were locked, not ideal really. The rooms are tired...

Many thanks for your review. I do apologies for the delay in breakfast, after investigating further i was made aware that there had been some confusion about what time the first breakfast was that day. Our doors are normally kept locked in the mornings until our customers come downstairs for safety reasons but on this occasion the opening of them...

We used to go here regularly but having moved to devon revisited after 3 years away. The food was good and the portions were good. Unfortunately I had chicken napoleon and the sauce was cold. They merely scooped off the vegs, chips and most of the sauce and microwaved the chicken and the little sauce that was left. They did...

The bedrooms are of a very poor standard. Carpet stained and badly fitted Room generally grubby Decor, terrible or at the very most interesting depending on your taste. No duvet, old school blankets that make you itch all over, I haven't seen these for over 30 years. Centrally heating evidently doesn't work as there's an electric heater. I love supporting...

Thank you for your review. If you would like to contact us further regarding your stay with us, please do so by e-mailing me at gavinhird@probablythebestpubsintheworld.co.uk as i am unsure as to which room your referring to. Our central heating also works fine but does go off in the night, so the electric heaters are there if needed.

Warm and welcoming rooms and staff. Rooms well equipped with all you need and comfortable, be it in a twin room or four poster double bedroom! Plenty of parking, excellent bar and restaurant facilities.

Nice setting, decent service, but most of the meals were very dry, over sweet barbecue sauce, rubbery halloumi, undressed salad, dry uninteresting veg, not even a knob of butter to make it look better, overcooked meats, no vinegar on the tables, salt mills require attention, though we were offered condiments with the main meal, which arrived well after the meals....

We've been here a few times, so many we've lost count, why do we keep coming back, consistently good food. The place has a nice spacey feel inside, the menu is enough to keep you interested, and well, that works for us, along with the ease of parking and clean interiors and friendly staff it's a big thumbs up from...

Our party of 4 visited the Hunting Lodge today for Sunday lunch. Fairly busy when we arrived. Starter, main meal and dessert were very nice, but getting served leaves a lot to be desired. Hunting Lodge is good food, but shape up on service.

Thanks for your review. I do apologies that on this occasion we have marred our reputation. Having investigating further, it seems that we were understaffed as two members of staff were off and i was away. I hope this hasn't put you off and we will look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Visited here for a family meal I must say what a treat. Very welcoming friendly staff with prompt service. Had three course meal which was delightful. Menu is fantastic with lots of choices and great value for money cannot wait to return in the new year.
