The Fishermans Cot looks much better after a serious make over with new carpets, tables and decoration. The dirty terracotta tiles remain but I guess they are ok.... Food looked great on the Sunday carvery but I was pretty shocked at paying nearly £8 for two drinks! But then it does have a great location and they have improved the...

Went for lunch with a few friends without a booking. Was told there was an hour's wait for the food. Since a couple of my friends had to leave early, they ordered soup; the kitchen agreed to serve them earlier which was helpful. The rest of us waited, and were presented with deliciously cooked food: Pulled pork shoulder, pork steak,...

We passed this hotel on the way back home a couple of years ago and thought how lovely it looked so we decided to book it for a night while visiting Devon, the only room left was a family room so we booked that and was not disappointed with the room although it smelled a bit musty it was clean...

Arrived with friends to have a late lunch, The meal was lovely and Sally was very helpful and nice to all of us. Only small criticism is not much flavour in the tartar sauce. Minor for such a brilliant meal - would definitely visit again and recommend to pals! Well worth a visit!

The room was very clean, well decorated, good sized wardrobe, hair dryer and tea and coffee making facilities. It had...

Was in the area on business and checked in for one night, arrived just before 9pm and was welcomed by the barman who was cheerful and helpful. Allocated to room 12 which meant going back outside and around the corner and having to move the car nearer but not an issue, the room itself smelt musty when we went in...

Stayed at Fishermans Cot for three nights. It is in a wonderful setting and is an excellent place to stay if you want to visit the north Devon area. Our room was quite basic but clean and comfortable. There was no wardrobe in the room but a fixed rail with half a dozen hangers was built into one corner. Breakfast...

Didn't stay here so u a letter to do mention about the accommodation. Ate in the bar as same menu as the restaurant and there was a table available by the window giving the best view of the river with ducks and the old stone bridge. It happened to be a lovely sunny evening too. Enjoyed a chicken dish (...

Stopped here on our way to Cornwall. What a lovely pub with the river right next to the pub. Beautiful place. ordered a burger and the rest of the family ordered fish & chips and a salad. Burger was a bit tasteless but apart from that no faults. We will definitely stop off again.
