Warm and welcoming well kept Golden Pig and Tribute bitter. Delicious Artichoke & stilton pie with asparagus, wilted spinach on a potato rosti White chocolate & raspberry cheesecake to die for. Drop off the A39 for a treat. The spring flowers are out with a trickling waterfall on one side of the rear car park lovely!

Comfortable clean room great evening meal and lush breakfast well worth a stay if you are visiting Clovelly just a short drive away. Lovely gardens to have a look around and pleasant attentive staff. Would stay again.

We stayed here overnight to break up our long journey. Having found it quite last minute at at a very reasonable price we weren't sure what to expect. However, what we found was very nice. We checked in very late but having called ahead we were directed where to collect our keys so had no problems on arrival. Our room...

I am prompted to write my first review on any hotel after staying at Hoops last weekend for two nights. We had originally booked a superior double room for the Saturday night only, but at the last minute were able to travel down on Friday. Booking a slightly cheaper room at late notice was no problem. When we arrived we...

Visited Hoops with three friends without knowing much about it and had the most amazing meal. Perfectly cooked scallops and duck to start, followed by delicious hake and a stunning blue cheese and artichoke tart that I would love the recipe for - the pastry was amazing. We had two dogs with us which we were going to leave in...

Complementary water, all ten making facilities. Charming decor, TV, free Wi-fi. Huge bathroom with spa bath, plenty of towels and upmarket complementory toiletries. Absolutely everything you...

We often have Sunday lunch at this inn and it is truly superb. Sirloin of beef is perfectly cooked and vegetables (although appear to be the same every week) are nicely cooked but the best is their crispy roast potatoes. Wonderful. Service by the young waitresses is very good. Always speedy and smiling! A plus these days.

Following a cold, damp January walk around Hartland and feeling hungry we decided to check out the Hoops Inn. We have lived in Westward Ho! for ten years and have passed this pub many times but never ventured inside. I'm so glad we did today. Had a delicious Sunday lunch... thickly sliced pink roast beef, homemade Yorkshire pudding, crunchy roast...
