“Family friendly 5 star”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

We live in Lympstone, but have only just discovered this GEM. We went on a Saturday early evening, and felt able to relax in the sun (for a whole afternoon) with 2 rampaging toddlers, completely occupied - having fun...and they even finished their dinner. Simple and ideal meals for kids. On the Sunday, our 3 year old asked could we go back...so with no hesitation, we did - and had a lovely roast dinner and a great time playing.

The sun-garden is like no other we have found. Not only is there a fantastic adventure play-ground. But the extremely attentive and friendly family who run The Saddlers Arms, also keep chickens, extremely large rabbits, tortoise, and guinea pigs - that are tame and safe for kids to pet - in the garden.

Brilliant experience for families who would like to enjoy time together, food together and outdoor activity - that is suitable for all ages.

“Warm and Friendly Welcome”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Having been out yesterday afternoon after all the bad weather, we stopped here for a meal.
Because my Wife is vegetarian and she prefers ordinary home cooked food rather than anything fancy, we had not stopped at other places, having looked at their menus.

We couldn't have chosen a better place.
The welcome was warm and friendly.
The choice of food although not massive was adequate for both of us.
Also there was a specials board which included a vegetarian special.
My wife was most impressed, because quite often her choices are limited to "Salad, Salad OR SALAD"
The food was individually cooked and everything was home made.

We shall definitely be going back.

P.S. The puddings are to die for

“Outstanding!!!!”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Travelled from West Yorkshire to Lympstone and not knowing anywhere, we decided to try the Saddlers. What a great choice! The atmosphere was fantastic, as were the staff. The food was excellent and as for the landlord, Darren, what a genuine nice bloke, made us feel so welcome. Would strongly recommend the Saddlers to everyone

“very relaxing evening”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

We have been quite a few times for a mid week evening meal ,taking visitors with us on occasion since the new owners Tessa and Darren have taken over.
It is very apparent each time we visit (about weekly) that everything is gradually improving.
The food is lovely, the ambience is relaxing and the owner always welcomes us and makes us feel as if we are the only people there!
They are certainly trying to cater for all ages and types of people.
I would highly recommend.
