After a walk up to Watersmeet on a drizzly day, a warm welcoming pub with friendly barman was just what we needed. Large portions and quick service. Barman even lit the log burner for us. Walking boots and soggy dogs welcomed. I had the muddy boots and will definitely take my dogs next time !

Popped in to this pub durring a day walk with our springer spaniel Tilley. The sign outside stated muddy boots and soggy dogies welcome and WE WERE! I dont think I have ever felt so relaxed in a pub before with my dog. The ownner also had two spaniels so this is definatly a pub for dog lovers. The snack...

Twice we have had guaranteed & confirmed bookings & twice the village inn have phoned at 8pm the night before to cancel our stay, once was bad enough but twice is unacceptable especially as we booked the second time a week earlier.

Very rarely one have true reasons to highly rate pub food, but the food served in this place is simply superb! We had fish and chips, steak pie and our little one had meatballs, all are delicious! Service is great too! Definitely a place for a hearty meal and some good drinks too!

What a disappointment ! Very run down. Extremely dirty. Everywhere smelt strongly of dogs. Raw dog bone on chair in bar! Black mouldy grouting in shower.

Oh dear, we only popped in for a pint and a quick bite to eat and wished we hadn't. The place was full of locals who were very very loud, and this was lunchtime. Dogs everywhere that seemed to own the place, sitting on chairs, growling, barking. Only one of our group decided to eat and ordered a sandwich, almost...

Four of us stayed for one night and whilst the food and drink were very good (see the separate review) the accommodation left a lot to be desired. Being a dog-friendly hotel shouldn't mean that the bedrooms smell strongly of dogs - which they did ... very strongly. It would put me off staying there again which is a shame...

Stayed here for 4 nights, made very welcome, we ate here in the evenings and the food was lovely, all home made and good portions. It looks like they change the specials menu regularly so you should always find something that you enjoy. The breakfast is also very good, the lady that serves breakfast asked us what we would like...

Over a week, had several meals here. Excellent food and value. The landlady does all her own food and very good. Would definitely recommend trying a meal here. It's dog and child friendly. We stay in the area in cottages regularly, self catering, but will definitely eat here again.

We had an early evening meal here with our young daughter. The Village Inn is family friendly, we had good service and great food (large portions which beat us all!). Would definitely recommend a visit.
