This establishment hails from 1320 with thatched roof and looks like a Hollywood set. Pleasant atmosphere with no piped music to get on your nerves. Barfood was a cut above average and real ales on tap. I ate venison pie with handout chips and a Pint of Otter.

Went for a family meal on a Monday night. 4adults 3 kids and a dog. The food was lovely. Not typical pub grub. Gorgeous risotto, plenty of vegetarian options. Kids meals a little pricey for what they were but tasty. The service was friendly but the wait was fairly long for food.

Great ambience. Pretty good service. All our starters were fine including my prawn cocktail. My pork special was excellent and all food was well presented. Fresh tasting sauvignon blanc. 2 courses and wine £35 a head. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all we were agreed it was a really enjoyable experience.

The Inn itself is a lovely cosy place & the staff couldn't have been more friendly in the evening & we were made to feel welcome. The menu however was limited, although the food...

Stayed here with my partner for a birthday treat. The Cott Inn provided us with a warm welcome, trouble free check-in, country pub ambience, beautiful food and fabulous accommodation. There is nothing I can fault. Nothing was too much trouble for Anton and all the bar/restaurant staff. The pub was full with the addition of a large party in the...

Not many people I know have spent the night in a 14th Century Devon longhouse. Well now I have, having spent last night in the truly unique surroundings of the Cott Inn. Pretty as a picture from the outside, it just gets better as you enter the inn. There are only 5 rooms;we were in room 6 (how does that...
