Certificate of Excellence
The famous Cott Inn in Dartington is one of the oldest thatched inns in Britain. It is reputed to have been built in the reign of Edward II (1307 to 1327) and has been an Inn / Pub since 1320. Situated in the village of Dartington near Totnes, surrounded by beautiful countryside, The Cott Inn is a charming traditional family-run pub. We are proud to serve excellent locally-sourced seasonal food, fine wines and well-kept ales, including daily fish specials and fabulous Sunday roast lunches. Perfect for romantic dinners and evenings out with friends. The Cott Inn is also a great venue for private parties with a separate dining room for up to 30 people. Come and enjoy the relaxed, friendly atmosphere, with cosy log fires in the winter months and a large, pretty garden and patio area in warmer weather.

Great pub with well kept beer and food that is clearly carefully and well cooked along the honest pub grub lines, in a pub that has charm, age and a great restoration after the fire here a few years ago. What is also apparent is that the owner/manager is on top things. So what

Is the inn on a noisy road and is there much traffic noise ?
Sorry for delay but didn’t see your message. The Cott is not on a main road more like a lane so not noisy.
