We have been here before and had decent food without it being outstanding. Yesterday, 4 of us had a mixed experience. The restaurant was reasonably busy for a weekday lunchtime and it took a long time for our orders to arrive and when they did they looked good. I ordered risotto which was the major problem; I must echo comments... More

We stayed here one night whilst walking the Dartmoor Way. We arrived at reception, but no-one was there. Eventually a young girl arrived, we asked for our luggage (which had been forwarded on) she said she had "no idea" where it was. After a lot of fuss, a passing waited found our suitcases and just said "they are there" Every... More

Looks a fabulous place from outside and we were stopping not far away. Passing almost daily we noted meals from £4.99. This enticing us in through the door to discover that this did not include Sundays or bank holidays was a big disappointment. Bad advertising to the point of misleading. Cask ale was also found to be unsatisfactory. 10/10 for... More

Looking for a place to stay for a short break, I found the Dartbridge Inn amongst my search. I found it easy to book over the phone,although it took us a while longer than planned to arrive, due to roadworks near Exminster. We were greeted by a friendly gentleman who made us feel welcome, showing us the dining area where... More

The staff were all very pleasant and the refurbishment since we last visited is very good, apart from the fact that the reception is completely in the wrong place. We waited ages as the guy who served us was also serving at the bar which was very busy. When we finally did check in you then have to walk through... More

We had decided to eat here near the end of our 140 mile journey as we have used this group frequently and know what to expect. However, we were told that we would not be served as they were accepting people with bookings only. We hadn't booked as because of the journey, our arrival time would be a bit of... More

We went in to get a drink and ask for a menu and my husband was rudely told no more food orders being taken for the rest of the day/evening as they had been busy for Mother's Day.... More

The Inn itself was very nice and lovely bedrooms but would not recommend having a room in the front as a very noisy main road in front. They seem to be very short staffed. And the meals were not as good as other Inns we have stayed in.
