We stayed at the Portsmouth Arms with friends for a couple of days before our wedding and had a fantastic stay. Can't fault it at all. We stayed in the cottages which were lovely - really nice and modern and it was great to have a separate downstairs living area separate from the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. We had a...

Never been to this quiet gem of a pub/hotel before, and my husband not been here for many years. What can I say? One of the best, if not the best, eating out places in the area. Restaurant was lovely and roomy and the food was so freshly cooked and delicious. This place was recommended to us and I can...

A real gem of a place, I can see why the reviews are great for this place. We stayed in one of the cottages which was warm, clean and a home from home. The pub next door has great character with a warm welcome from Dee and Andy. The food we had at night and the breakfast in the morning...

What a lovely and pleasant country pub with very comfortable accommodation. A stay in the cottages right next to the pub, is like having your own country getaway with a pub and restaurant right on the doorstep. Great value for money. The pub is a traditional old fashioned coaching Inn with excellent real ales and is run by a lovely...

Stayed here recently when attending a wedding. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Warm welcome, good food (breakfast was made to order) and the room was exceptional - very clean and fabulously furnished. The landlady even waited up for us to return from our wedding and enjoy a night cap. Would definitely stay again.

We booked a cottage at the Portsmouth Arms the night before our wedding 3rd November 2016 at Millbrook Estate. It was very good we ate in the pub for our evening meal and that was very good and had breakfast in the morning which was cooked to order. Our cottage was just fine and we thought that it was very...

Just returned from a 3 night stay in the Portsmouth Arms. accommodation was really comfortable, great nights sleep. The food is excellent, Dee is a great cook and the portions are really generous. We enjoyed meeting the locals, everyone is very friendly and would not hesitate to go back when we are down that way again.

Travelling around Britain we had an appointment in Bideford and selected this place online to be close by. We were very happy we did. As another reviewer has said we had the best sausage and mash ever! We were very happy to have an enormous dish of beautifully cooked veges ( something we have craved after 3 weeks of travelling)....

Had probably the best sausage and mash that I have ever eaten. The sausages come from a local butcher and are really tasty. The dish was served with a side of fresh veggies in a dish almost as large as the main. There was broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cabbage, mange tout and green beans, very nice. One of the nicest things...
