We are a family of four. We booked for a Sunday lunchtime and they were very welcoming. My husband and I had Roast Pork, which was delicious. The veg was very fresh and perfectly cooked. Children can have a smaller portion of anything on the menu, which makes a very pleasant change from most places. Our daughter had chicken curry with all the trimmings and our son opted for sausage and chips. The prices were really good, particulary for the area. The quality of the food and cooking was excellent. Would definitely eat here again if in the area.

We visited here on a Saturday night off season. This feels like a locals pub that is happy to welcome the visitors too. Its pretty much your traditional pub - pool table, bar stools, scampi and chips and dart board. But it does it well. They have Doom Bar ale on draught and friendly service. We had to wait 30 mins for a table (there were 6 of us) but it was worth the wait. Simple selection of starters - Thai fishcakes, nachos, spring rolls, goats cheese salad. Main courses including steak, chicken curry and chicken breast, haddock, chilli, gammon/egg/chips and fish and chips. We did have to wait quite a while for our main courses though. Its worth noting the other pub in the village, just across the road was completely deserted. The Old Inn must be doing something right.

We have recently been blessed with the good fortune of staying and eating at The Old Inn. As well as providing an excellent restaurant service, the establishment provides quality accommodation that is competitively priced.

The welcome that we received on arrival from the Proprietor and Manageress was warm and friendly, which made us feel at home immediately. The Old Inn provides Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the form of three clean, comfortable and well maintained rooms. All of the staff was warm, friendly, courteous and helpful throughout our stay, and nothing was too much trouble.

During our stay at The Old Inn, we used the restaurant for our evening meal. It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and a totally relaxing environment in which to enjoy the fine cuisine that is available. The quality of our food was outstanding as the restaurant employs a very talented chef. The food on the second evening was served by a delightful young lady who wore a permanent smile and radiated such positive energy. The speed of the service was impressive, and a bar was close to hand.

During our stay in the South Hams, we did check out another restaurant, where the food was of inferior quality at twice the cost. Eating at The Old Inn was for us the complete restaurant experience, and in my opinion, is unlikely to be beaten on value.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a positive review. Now that 'The Lodge' has closed for the winter, perhaps if you visit the area again you would like to stay with us. Regards Jo
