My husband and I stayed at the Pack Horse on Good Friday overnight. The room was faultless and had everything you need. Impressed with the chocolates on the bed. We had dinner and the food was excellent and the breakfast was also great. We tried to book another night but they were full. Staff very helpful and friendly and we...

Stayed at the Pack Horse for two nights. Nice welcome and taken to the room. Lovely large room with double aspect and views of the hills. Comfy bed, nice linen and a nice large bathroom. The only thing I would say is that for TV watchers it could be larger as it looks tiny in the large room! Had dinner...

Stayed 4 nights and we were well looked after. Wide bed, and plenty of bedclothes for rather cold February weather! Excellent Breakfast. South Brent is on the Southern edge of Dartmoor and is a perfect location for accessing most locations between Exeter and Plymouth.

Second time we have stayed here. Really nice "traditional" Pub with B&B. Room was very reasonably priced and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. Breakfast was first rate and friendliness of the owner/staff was great. Bar was good with some real ales and they did evening meals if required. We didn't have a meal on this trip, but...

Stayed for one night. Clean and comfortable. No noise from the pub, although it was a Monday! Staff were happy with our request for breakfast at an earlier time than their usual slot and the fresh strawberries were a great start to the day!

Found this little pub whilst travelling home to Wales, popped in for some traditional Sunday food. I cannot fault the Sunday lunch that I and my partner ordered. The portion size was spot on and the food extremely tasty. The pub was cosy and warm with the open fire. I would fully recommend the roast Sunday lunch :-)

Thank Kglad

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pack Horse is a family run bed and breakfast / pub. We offer a warm welcome to our four well proportioned en-suite rooms. We are positioned between Exeter and Plymouth, just off the A38 in the small but vibrant village of South Brent. The pub is traditional and offers a traditional pub grub menu seven days a week. We have a walled beer garden that has views of Dartmoor and is a sun trap for those relaxed afternoons. ... more   less
