We had chosen this venue.for our Christmas day lunch because it appeared to offer all the right ingredients for a memorable occasion. It certainly turned out memorable, but for all the wrong reasons. The bar area which offered character in the form of wooden beams coupled with a large open fireplace, one could conjure up the perfect setting in which...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 December 2016

A group of 10 of us stayed at this fantastic little hotel, some for 2 nights and some for 1 night. We had dinner here both nights from the A La Carte menu and were all absolutely amazed at the very high quality of the food. Not one of us could find a fault with any of the 3 courses...

We stayed for two nights with our Two Border Terriers. Our room was very well appointed, comfortable & clean. It was warm and the bed was comfortable. A nice view down to the river. Good dog walks. Excellent breakfast and we enjoyed our meal in the restaurant. The steak was particularly tasty. Some more "slimming" options on the menu would...

Lovely welcome, food, drinks and service! We had dinner in the restaurant one Monday evening when we thought it would be quiet! How wrong could we be and we can see why! The place was very busy but we were seen to very promptly. We had drinks on a lovely comfy sofa and then the waiter came for our order....

I stumbled across this hotel when looking for a last minute weekend get away, on an internet email offer. How pleased were we?! The hotel is fabulous, great history behind it and the owners have somehow managed to incorporate the antique and history of the past with a clean and fresh modern feel. Beds are comfy and nice to have...

We had lunch here on a Saturday with family and the place was empty so no atmosphere. We found the menu very boring and uninspiring with limited choice. When our meals came there was no vegetables at all and none offered or no suggestion of veg. Everything was just pie and chips, fish and chips etc. but not even any...

I am sorry to read about your disappointing lunch. We enjoy a remote location which often does mean lunchtimes, particularly in the middle of winter, can be quiet. Our lunch menu offers freshly cooked hot food and sandwiches which are always popular and have found little demand for vegetables with the fish and chips but are always happy to provide...

My husband and me brought my parents down to Devon to see their newest great granddaughter who lives in Winkleigh. My parents had an accessible room on the ground floor with a shower. The shower was very small and they found it very difficult to use. The room its self was very comfortable. Our room was on the first floor....

When arriving at the Hotel Reception I made it clear that we had booked room 5 first floor. There was some hesitation on their part and we were then told that we had room 16 which turned out to be an attic room up a very steep staircase through a fire door which then had to be closed before access...

We booked this venue for 19 people to celebrate my mother in laws 70th birthday party as it was near to where they live (Winkleigh) The staff were all very friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble.
