Room by the River
We had a lovely stay here, the staff were friendly and welcoming and a room with a stunning view of the river dart. With Covid still with us not everything could be provided especially the menu, lack of supplies, staff making matters worse. I think they should update the pub website to reflect this that way they won't have as many whingers.. Some of the guests were really demanding, no reflection on the management or staff. Would return for sure.

The view of the River Dart is breathtaking.
The best thing about our stay was the view of the River Dart from our window. It was breathtaking. I wished that we could have stayed longer, so I could just sit and watch that river flow by.

Very rustic inn
Very limited dinner menu although breakfast fine apart from lack of fresh fruit. Tiny bed in our bedroom and en-suite very small. Staff friendly and helpful.

Abbey Inn- a good breakfast but limited choice for
Friendly, helpful staff. Dinner menu very limited, especially as staying 3 nights! Room very clean but dipper room could do with a bigger bed! Lovely river view.
