If you are looking for a modern up to date state of the art establishment then this is not for you. If you are looking for bags of character great service fantastic food in a warm cosy tradition environment that is slightly frayed around the edges then look no further. We loved it and would loved to have stayed longer. It is right on the edge of Dartmoor and is absolutely wonderful. The menu is tight but boy oh boy it is excellent. Rooms are great, clean and very tidy with oodles of character. Brilliant
