We visited today for lunch with an old neighbour. We hadn't booked but they quickly found us a lovely table even though they were busy. The menu was excellent and really good value. We all had a great lunch and the carvery was excellent too. The staff were very efficient and friendly. We will definitely be returning.

Booked this hotel as it was close to ashburton cookery school as well as Dartmoor walking. Importantly, it was advertised as dog friendly. Couldn't be happier that we made this choice. From the second we arrived, were made most welcome, and were shown to our room. We had two nights, and on one we ate at the hotel restaurant. We...

The service and attention that we received on entering the restaurant was second to none. Friendly, attentive and helpful staff led us to our table and took our drinks order. Shortly followed by taking our food order,...

Visited here a few weeks ago with friends after a walk and had a lovely carvery. They were just replenishing it as we arrived, so we had to wait about 15-20 minutes, but that was fine. The chef was very friendly and extremely generous with the servings! I had gammon, turkey and beef with all the trimmings and it was...

The Dartmoor Lodge is ideally placed just off the main route. On arrival we were upgraded to a 4-poster room which was exceptionally clean, spacious and comfortable with a generous provision of teas and coffee. The en-suite was also spotless. Dinner that evening was excellent - very good choice offered on the menu and the steak and duck were cooked...
