We stayed here a few years ago and decided to come back for a long weekend in March. We already knew the place was good, the location is stunning, a quiet little village with beautiful countryside views. We got a great deal with dinner, bed and breakfast with a two course dinner every night! The food was stunning. I can't fault it, top marks to the chef they have. We mostly ate fish which was beautifully cooked and also I have to say the creamy white wine garlic sauce was delicious, should have asked for the recipe. Stunning. I also have to say that the staff were great, very friendly, helpful and knowledgable, well run team. Was sad to leave come the Sunday morning. We will definately be returning and recommend to friends and family. If you want to real in the countryside, have great food, great service and great walks (We walked from the here to Dartington Shops) then this is the place for you. I can't wait to go back. Thanks all at the Sea Trout for making our stay wonderful. Was lovely to be back in Devon.

Met a colleague here over a cup of tea. Whilst on this occasion it was a short visit I would definitely go back for food or to stay, the staff were very helpful and friendly. A great place to base yourself for exploring South Devon, Totnes is just 5 minutes away by car. There's a lovely railway nearby - it's a not far from the main A38 but you could be a million miles away from anywhere and switch right off. Will be going back, it's got far more to offer than a soulless travel lodge or premier inn.

Amazing rooms, great bathroom, fine decoration, the staff is really nice and helpful. The perfect romantic break. Very good option for a short stay. Too bad the food doesn't always match the establishment's standards.

Stayed for two nights at the Sea Trout Inn, very warm welcome, very nice staff, excellent food and a nice room. Few niggles - breakfast room was a bit chilly, not enough tea bags in the tea and coffee supplies etc, but overall a good experience. Room was nice and quiet, lovely village setting and good value for money.

Just spent a wonderful long weekend here. Accommodation is excellent, really spacious rooms. Meals are a total joy , wonderfully cooked and locally sourced. The area is so beautiful and the walks along the Dart with the snowdrops is stunning at this time of year. Thank you Sam and Jason for all your hard work in making The Sea Trout such a special place.

My wife and I have just visited the Sea Trout for a bar lunch. What a fantastic surprise! We expected the usual, end of Winter pub grub but had the choice of what must have been a la carte fare anywhere else! The pub does have a separate restaurant, but the choice (and value for money) of the bar food is simply amazing......likewise when the food arrived (in a timely and friendly manner) the presentation was superb and reminiscent of Michael Caines Michelin restaurant in Exeter! We were blown away by the atmosphere, customer value and food. We were obviously not alone as the car park was full (on a wet Wednesday in winter!)...we found it by chance.....suggest you go and enjoy for yourselves"

Just spent a lovely relaxing long weekend at the Sea Trout. The room was very cosy and warm. All the meals were delicious. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Dog friendly pub. We look forward to visiting again soon. Lovely walks by the River Dart.
