“Fantastic food all freshly cooked for you”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Well what can I say about The Portsmouth Arms. A friendly local pub with excellent hosts and right of the Exmouth to Barnstaple trainline. You can get off at the station, walk to the pub, have a few beers and a fantastic meal freshly cooked for you. I tried the Tarragon Chicken which did not disappoint and came with SEVEN vegetables!!!! Will definitely be going back and taking some friends for a night out as well. Well done Dee and Andy, a village local to be proud of.

We had a very late Christmas meal at the Portsmouth Arms, and I have to say, everything was not just good but exceptional, Dee and Andy really looked after us, and nothing was to much trouble. Great friendly pub with good food and friendly service, highly recommended.

Always a sincere welcome. Great food. Good beer and friendly, entertaining locals. Andy & Dee excellent hosts. The apartments are modern and comfortable. Highly recommended. Peter the woodsman has plenty of tales to tell and another guy whose name escapes is a laugh.

We decided to take a 5 day "taster" mini break in North Devon, on the recommendation of a friend - who suggested the Portsmouth Arms.The cottage was ideal - beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Andy and Dee were the perfect hosts. The meals (breakfast and evening) were substantial and delicious. Although we were strangers, Andy, Dee and the regulars made us feel welcome from the minute we walked through the door. Very memorable - we will be back !

We live locally and often visit the Portsmouth Arms for an evening meal. We have always been made welcome - even when we were newcomers to the area, and have sampled some delicious meals. From Sunday roast to simple sausage and mash - 5 star rating!

Attending a wedding at an *extremely* close venue, then visiting friends in the area. Stayed five nights, three in a room in the main building, the last two in one of the cottages. The room was fine, no problems there, then the cottage was just sensational. Immaculately clean, spacious and comfortable. My local friends and I returned to eat in the hotel/pub on no less than three further occasions.

I join with my fellow TripAdvisor contributors to thank proprietors Dee and Andy. The review title says it all.

Stayed two nights in one of the cottages.What a great choice! Excellent accommodation, with everything we needed. Warm and cosy,despite the terrible weather. Ate in the pub both evenings.Excellent food, a great price and huge portions.Andy and Dee were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble.The log fire was an added bonus and you couldn't get me away from it! The locals made us extremely welcome and we will definately be going back again.Peaceful and relaxed break, just what we were after

Room Tip: The cottage with a double bed was excellent.Everything you need is provided.
