We booked a deluxe room of a specified proportion. We were given a small room and told the only delux room was already occupied. We ask to cancel and I expected full room. If you do not receive the room you booked you expect a full refund. We received half! Appalling,we did not stay we did not get the room we had booked. This is also a noisy place,very noisy ! Awful .
There are so many things to commend about this historic Devon pub. It is in a wonderful building, with a great outdoor space. They offer a good selection of food and drinks. The food is tasty, and the portions are generous. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Easy to see why it’s so popular. Doing everything right.
Have had a lovely lunch here several times in pat couple of years- but disappointed with the food this time. Prices have gone up [ understandably] but quality and portion size down. Chicken main course was dry and tough, and salad with other main was not fresh and tiny amount. The Pavlova dessert was tiny with a couple bits fruit- they used to do an amazing Eton Mess- full of meringue and fruit. Can do better!
Went to the Cott early one sunny and hot lunch time. Initially, it was unclear whether staff were actually staff or customers due to casual attire. However, once it was clear, staff were great and very attentive. Table service outside, which is a rarity and staff always visible. In particular, Anton is great. Lovely bloke and a real asset to The Cott; consistently remaining happy in the face of adversity. I ordered the Korean chicken burger. This was delicious and filling. My partner had a pizza which she enjoyed greatly. This was after some lovely fresh bread and delicious olives. Food was excellent. Drinks options haven’t changed much over the years, but there is a good variety of most drinks. The garden area is truly magnificent and makes the experience even better; what an amazing job the team have done there. It was a particularly hot and sunny day and there was plenty of sun and shaded areas to choose from. Overall, as usual, an excellent place to eat and we’ll be back soon!…
Why wouldn't someone stay here is the question? It's filled with charm, every single staff member was extremely friendly. The bed was SO comfortable and the room was very modern for such a historic property. The shower was amazing and the bathroom very spacious. We had a delicious breakfast and chatted with the Inn's owners before heading off the next day. This is a busy pub and restaurant - with excellent food and lovely outdoor seating areas - but we were ready for a lively space after 4 days of hiking in Dartmoor. I hope we'll return one day.
Great atmosphere and location however food is expensive for what you get. The burger was good NO Salad ....come on you can try harder for the price and the chips were small in portion for the price so I wish I had gone to weatherspoons.
The pub is full of character, the staff are super friendly and the drinks are good quality. The room is quirky, a little noisy but understandable being in a pub of this age. The place is dog friendly which is great. We ate in the pub which was good. It was busy so I’d guess booking is essential.
Really nice pub with great food, wide range of drinks (nice to see such a choice of wine by the glass) and good service. Went for Sunday roast, only planned to have a main course, ended up having a 3 course meal. Good value for money too. We will definitely return.
Amazing little pub with fantastic service start to finish , The Staff really are a great team and a credit to this establishment , The food was first class and can’t fault one single thing puts some top restaurants to shame, The sea bream was to die for and my daughters loved the chicken dish followed by mouth watering desserts we will definitely be coming back for more .
Came for dinner on a weeknight, Fantastic food, great portion sizes, flavoursome wholesome meal. Cosy environment, staff lovely and helpful. Will definately be back when we next visit from london! Excels our pub food expectation for sure
