As part of our stay we enjoyed a five course tasting menu which was outstanding. The range and quality of the food was outstanding and looking at the menu the al a carte menu was good. The wine list was good and the staff were professional and attentive without being overpowering.

We drove from Plymouth to the Arundell Arms for an evening Taster meal which was a Christmas gift from our daughter. The evening started well with drinks and canapés in the lounge. The waitress asked if 'pink' was Ok for the lamb. We asked if it could be cooked to 'medium'. The first two courses were fine but when we... More

Oh dear, last attempt, sadly no better than the last. As a dog loving family, to say it was objectionable to have five under a table near enough to smell them says it all. Scant menu, poor service, won't be going again.

Admittedly it was a bargain break weekend, but the thought of paying the regular prices would've sent a shudder up my back. Food was "ok" but must admit we were expecting something a bit better. Service was, hmmm....how to put it....average, but the staff were on the whole friendly, and as helpful as possible. The room itself left a little... More

None of the three really was that good, but we remained optimistic as taken to our table, into a slightly dated dinning room but nice enough. I should also state we were... More
