Had a lovely lunch here, the inn is very cosy inside, with a great selection of food on offer for lunch and dinner, we had soup and sandwiches and they were excellent, the ale is also very good and well looked after, the pint of Otter tasted great. Loved the Christmas decorations. We will be back

We stayed here the first week of November, the room was a good size with a good en suite and was all spotless with lovely linen. The restaurant food was fantastic and there were lovely walks through glorious Devon countryside....would thoroughly recommend.

You're assured of a warm welcome at the Bearslake inn. Nestled on the edge of Dartmoor all the bedrooms are different and have lots of character and amenities such as shower gel, etc. The restaurant serves excellent food - well worth a visit.

We stayed in The Hayloft for one night. The room was beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable and with a great view onto Dartmoor. The staff were all friendly and efficient. The food (we had both lunch and dinner) was very good and what we particularly liked was that all the ingredients were sourced as locally as possible. The staff were happy... More

We used the Bearslake Inn as a one night stop off on the way to Cornwall. It wasn't great. While the building and setting are charming the staff are not that welcoming. We got the impression they don't really get what is you have to do to create a good guest experience. They ignored us standing at the bar where... More

Stopped for lunch on route to Taunton from Penzance. We were a little early but the friendly bar person offered to take our order and pass it to the kitchen so we would be served quickly. Good job too as by midday the pub filled up quickly. We ordered sandwiches and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of... More

We visited this charming old country pub for Sunday lunch. It has ample parking and a delight to view from outside, matched by its interior. We were early and were refreshed with an above average cup of obviously freshly brewed coffee, before being called into its restaurant with freshly laundered gleaming white linen. We ordered from a nicely varied menu.... More
