We thought this would be a nice romantic place to stay on the first night of our honeymoon. We actually visited the inn a couple of months in advance as we happened to be passing. We confirmed with them that we had booked the room called wheal betsy as it is the only room with a view over the surrounding...

12 of us had dinner there during the real ale and sausage festival. Great choice of sausages including 2 veggie options. At least 5 choices of mash including mustard mash or sweet potato mash. Also a limited menu on offer. Everyone enjoyed the food. And there was a large choice of real ales too. There are tables on grass out...

Ended up here for lunch after getting a bit lost following a rural "short cut". We had ploughmans with chips; great and absolutely massive portions. My boyfriend had the "large" and actually had to have a lie-down in the car park and massage his stomach, much to the amusement of the cab driver. Staff friendly and obligingly called a taxi...

We were staying close by and dropped in for an evening meal. The service was good and we were made to feel welcome. We sat in the beer garden and stared at the view- until it got a bit windy! Cosy interior, good choice of food and at reasonable prices.

We spent Easter weekend at this Inn with a couple of friends. It was their second visit, and our first. The rooms just outside the Inn are converted barnes. They are well appointed, very clean and have a very comfortable bed. The distance to the inn / restaurant is literally about 15 - 20 steps away. Very friendly accommodating staff...

Have stayed here with my dog on five or six occasions, and am always assured of a great welcome. Great position for the Moors, and walking the dog, - and ideal for seeing my son and granddaughter in Plymouth (their house not big enough for staying, really). They often come up for one of The Mary Tavy's excellent meals -...

I love this little pub. The bar has a nice warming fire, a small selection of real ales and fabulous views. The views are obviously more noticeable if you sit in the good sized beer garden. There is a small cosy restaurant too which can cater for parties, and the meals are lovely. For those of you who might want...

We stop here twice a year and what a treat. Superb service and excellent food. The staff are attentive but not too in your face. Ale is beautifully kept. Just a really enjoyable experience. Am already looking forward to my next visit.

We stay at the Mary Tavy Inn several times a year when we go to Devon to visit our daughter. Our favourite room is Brentor. It is lovely to wake up to the sound of cows gently mooing. The rooms are always clean, nicely decorated, with beautiful comfy beds and a good shower. There are tea and coffee making facilities...
