Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a lovely property. I booked the “Premium Double Room” as I was in Exeter for business. Received a courtesy call from the owner to check if I wanted dinner on my arrival, explained that I might be late and she kindly offered to have...my choice of food ready to be warmed up on my arrival. Found the inn after a drive through a very rural part of Devon (even though Exeter is 5 miles away), lots of parking and easy to find (it’s signposted). Was welcomed by a very polite and friendly young man called “Joe”, who showed me my room and gave me a quick history of the 250 whisky collection behind the bar. My room was good, and even had a decanter of sherry for the guests! Had my dinner which was a tasty fish and chip supper and a couple of pints of ale, finally finished my evening with a cracking whiskey and kept company by a lovely golden retriever. The accommodation was very reasonably priced and included breakfast ( I had to be on the road at 06:00 so unable to comment on the food).More

We come to stay at The Nobody inn every year as a growing family now with grandchildren. We’ve commented before on the warm welcome from the amazing team and the high-quality of the food combine with the willingness to cater for food in intolerances. Sue...and her team make the very most of the wonderful venue and go the extra mile every time . This time we feel we just have to comment about the extraordinarily good Sunday lunch we’ve just enjoyed. Each one of us felt it was the Sunday roast we had ever experienced and we speak as professionals! The overflowing Car Park bears Testament to this, so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment! Thanks again for a wonderful stay, and for always being willing to find a solution to our weird and wonderful requests ! Wishing you all a successful and happy year Jules, Sandra, Kelly, Dan, Jesse, Kayce, Steve, Jo and Julie xxMore

We visited on a Sunday in January 24 with a group of 10 friends for a roast. Not only were the roasts fabulous but the service was quick and with a smile. Would return without question.

I stayed 8 nights at The Nobody Inn, had breakfast each morning, which was made to order and delicious. I think I had dinner 5 of the 8 nights. I ordered something different each time - mostly the pies with coleslaw, potato salad and a...green salad. It was a lot of food, even though I had been exploring and walking around all day. I tried to make sure to eat the healthy bits first and not fill up on savory pie and mashed potatoes. Everything was plated with edible flowers and young pea sprouts. All yummy, but I was sad about the peas that won't be. ;-) Being silly....young pea sprouts are tasty and probably full of nutrients. The bar is well stocked with hundreds of whiskys and your other favorites. It's a great place to enjoy a pint of beer outside at a picnic table with a view of the adjacent farms.More

I spent 9 nights at the NoBody Inn and stayed in the Rose Room. I loved my room, the food, the pub, and all of the staff. The Pub was built in 1630 and is relatively untouched in its remote Devon countryside location. Accessed by...single carriage lanes, it was a little unnerving to get there, but I got the hang of the lanes quickly! Just stick to 20-25 mph, slow down when you can't see around a corner or over a hill. Whomever is closest to a passing area has to back up. My room faced west with a lovely bay window. I spent lots of time sitting at that window, reviewing photos of the day or writing postcards. I enjoyed the birds in the garden and front row seat for every sunset. The entire staff is like family (some are related). They were all very friendly and hospitable. The pub has a great draft beer selection and HUGE whisky selection of Irish, Scottish and English. The local Dartmoor Whisky is very good. Breakfast is made to order and all was delicious (although, I tried, but could not eat the pickled kidneys). I always made sure there was room for brown toast with butter and their homemade whisky marmelade. Coffee is french press - the best! Dinners were robust and all delicious. I didn't eat in the pub every night, but did many. The pies, mash, coleslaw and salads are delish! I wished I could visit every year. Indeed, I do.More
