Popped off the motorway for a bite to eat and remembered the Fisherman's Cot at Bickleigh. Wonderfully priced lunch mon-fri with main courses at £5 and dessert or starter for £2. Quality and quantity was more than acceptable. Service attentive. Definite to go back!

Came here many times. Never had to book yet it is busy still. A lovely pub situated in a beautiful location, lovely decor inside and plenty of room. We came here on a Friday evening where they were hosting a large pre-wedding party of 40 so we were advised to get our food orders in if we wanted it before... More

Visited for lunch with wife and 2 friends. Decent sized car park with tremendous setting by River Dart and lovely old bridge. Welcomed in the busy restaurant as though we were regulars and shown to comfortable seats. Drink requirements quickly sorted while we studied menu - after short pause orders for food taken. A short wait while we chatted, and... More

I stayed at this hotel during Feb 2017 for one night as part of a business trip, check in was quick and easy, and had a nice meal in the restaurant. The rooms are a mixture of above the Restaurant and in outside annexes the allocated room was clean and had all the amenities you would expect. Breakfast the following... More

Looked on Internet and saw Fishermans Cot advertise large open fire to enhance friendly atmosphere. Arrived just before Sunday lunch to find no warming fire at all. If you advertise something then provide it. Coffee was excellent but totally spoiled by lack of ambiance.

Beautiful setting beside the river Exe, try and sit in the window seats for a view of the river flowing past especially in winter. The interior has been updated since my last visit several years ago and is now warm and welcoming. The menu is nothing out of the ordinary, I ordered pulled pork in a brioche bun served with...

Booked this last minute for a weekend away. Wanted something with lots of character which The Fishermans Cot certainly has. Creaky floorboards and low beams but all adds to the experience. Very warm welcome, bar and restaurant staff friendly, all in all a lovely weekend. Unfortunately the weather wasn't as pleasant ..........
