I attended this homely & warm Old Inn at the end of November for my dads 60th birthday. As it was a celebration & my dad being a regular (on travel for work) we attended as a large family group, we were greeted as if we were family. We had a tailored menu presented to us minimum of 5 courses,... More

It doesn't get the evening off to a great start when you wait well over half an hour for your order to be taken (with only two other tables in action). The nibbles with the aperos took even longer. The risotto-like amuse bouche was terrific but an open ravioli of rabbit with lemon and parmesan was really twice as big... More

Sometimes you come across a restaurant/inn so perfect you want to keep the information to yourself and relive the experience in your mind over and over again. Duncan and Anthea are dream-makers! I can't compliment the experience any better than to say you could rate the dinner and room a 6 out 5.

Another brief but relaxing stay strong the Old Inn. The welcome is always reliable, the bedrooms modest but comfortable and the food seems to get better. It's one of those places that ought to be more popular but thank goodness it is still quite accessible to those who know. Will be back again.

We have eaten here a few times now and stop for lunch whenever we go to the South West. The food is sublime, the owners are charming, the wine list is excellent, couldn't ask for anything else.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Old Inn and enjoyed delicious food and great wine all provided by our lovely hosts Anthea and Duncan who nothing was too much trouble for. We will definitely be returning in the near future and can highly recommend this comfortable and relaxing place.

A really wonderful place, we stayed in Room 5 which was beautiful and comfortable, we had an amazing 5 star dinner and breakfast the next day. Highly recommend this place, Anthea & Duncan were very welcoming and we can't wait to return.

We just loved this small charming restaurant tucked away in the small town of Drewsteignton. We had such a special night with fabulous food and warm, friendly service. Luckily, as a group of 8, they opened just for us which made the evening all the more memorable. Every course was clearly made with love - and the attention to detail... More

Gordon Ramsay, Rick Stein, Nathan Outlaw, Michael Caines: the list of brilliant chefs who operate in Devon and Cornwall is an illustrious one. Those in the know add the name of Duncan Walker, who cooks superlative food in The Old Inn at Drewsteignton near Exeter. To be precise, it is 13.5 miles from where I live. Hoorah! Duncan is not...

The food here is fabulous and absolutely lives up to its fantastic reputation. The fish dishes in particular were stand outs for us. Not only is the quality very good, but neither of us left feeling hungry. The resident dogs made us feel immediately at home and a great welcome. The decor may benefit from a spruce up and the...
