We have never put a review on TripAdvisor before but felt compelled to do so, so here goes. We had just cycled the Tarka Trail. During the last hour of our ride the heavens opened and so we arrived at this inn absolutely soaking wet through, looking like drowned rats! Regardless of this we were given an extremely warm welcome,...

Very comfortable, very clean. Beautiful location . Staff and owners very friendly. Friends were also staying and they were of the same opinion. We would all definitely not hesitate to stay again. Breakfast was also very nice.

As this is our "local" my wife and I decided to hold our wedding reception there. The 100 guests, including the 26 staying for the weekend, were all treated to the best, friendliest and most attentive service we could have wished for. The "Devon high tea" served was absolutely perfect for the occasion. The evening party for 150 was just...

We thought the room and en-suite were a little small but fine for the one night we stayed. Everything was very clean and the staff very friendly and efficient. Thoroughly recommend a G&T (the "Bathtub" gin is lovely) in the secret garden; that was fab....especially as the sun was shining ! Breakfast was relaxed and food excellent.

We were very impressed with the Rams Head, we enjoyed our mid-week dinner so much that we went back a few weeks later for Sunday lunch. Both visits were excellent - superb food and helpful, friendly staff. Having mostly lived in the home counties with it's incessant rush for profits - we had forgotten that good service; where staff take...

A great English country hotel & PUB. The welcome from the staff and locals were great. Do try the cornbeef hash it's a great forgotten English dish with new life. The belly of pork is expertly cooked and I hope these are on the menu when you try this lovingly restored village pub.

The place has been restored, and looks great; well we think so. Pork belly has changed slightly, still getting great feedback for it. Do come and see us again soon.

Dinner then bed. Such a regular routine for all of us, but this Friday, such a better routine at The Rams Head Inn, in Dolton. Having recently had every room at the Inn restored, we were looking forward to our stay. After great cold pint of Guinness, one of the finests I've enjoyed in weeks, we sat down for dinner....
