Lovely welcoming staff and excellent food. This must have been my 10th visit and I definitely make a point of stopping for a meal whenever I cross the moor. I have never stayed as I am usually in transit but I look forward to a stay when convenient.

Stopped for breakfast at 8.30am. Only two other tables occupied in the bar area at that time. Ordered 2 items off the non residents menu; poached eggs on toast and jam on toast. When chased up the order I was told it was being plated up. 15 minutes after chasing up the order food finally arrived 65 minutes from when...

We are sorry to have received your comments, and must apologise for the poor service that you received. Although there were only three tables eating in the bar area, the restaurant was actually full!. None the less your food should not have taken the 45 minutes that it did, and for this we apologise. As you will have seen from...

Travelling down to Devon after arduous journey by car, it is good to stop for lunch..We have stopped here before and again found a good welcome in the bar and a good choice on the menu. The food was cooked to order and served by really pleasant staff. We both enjoyed the food and country atmosphere. Will certainly call again...

Tired shabby decor. Rooms poor. Our toilet had soil marks. I know renovations are in progress but staff not helping to make more pleasant. We had a decent meal in restaurant for dinner and breakfast but the staff were definitely not quick of the mark to serve at dinner or breakfast. Hard to get their attention but pleasant once serving....

Great Hotel, very comfortable room with a Super King bed and great countryside views. Staff were excellent and had a very enjoyable stay. Great choice of meals and breakfast buffet was very good. We stayed for a family birthday party and had a great time. Will definitely go back.
