Booked in advance and we turned up for an early evening meal for six people. The steaks were good and the lamb was excellent - good portions too. Service was a little slow by we weren't in a rush so this was fine.

We stayed here for my cousins wedding that took place on 3rd of Sept. On arrival we did turn up at 12.30pm which was before the stated time on our booking, which was 2pm. We called on the off chance that we could come in early. When we arrived everything was closed up so we called on the telephone. The...

This place is certainly entertaining, in a Faulty Towers way. The food was moderate but very 1970s. Bangers and Mash, liver pate, prawn cocktail. Unfortunately the waiter in charge surpassed Basil Faulty in her rudeness and ability to make her guests feel like they were being a nuisance.

Used the restaurant twice while my family and myself where staying locally. Had the trio of sausages and mash for one meal and the Chilli for the other. Both meals where excellent and the staff where easy to deal with and talk to.

I stayed with my 5yo daughter in probably the busiest month of the year, yet we slept like logs throughout our entire visit! The owners are very friendly, chatty and accomodating, the rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. We ate whatever we fancied for breakfast; it was beautifully cooked, as was the evening meal. It's perfect postioned to...

we went here when on holiday in Hope Cove. At first reluctantly as had a bad experience years ago when we were refused a drink because we weren't eating. But that was under a previous management and we were so glad we ignored our past experience. It has now a very cosy friendly atmosphere. The food was excellent and the...

We stayed for one night and on arrival the owners were very welcoming, helpful and inviting. The pub itself doesn't have great kerb appeal, but inside it's fine and it has parking to the rear. Our room was OK, basic but clean, although I feel overpriced at £80 compared to other places we have stayed in the region. The en-suite...

TERRY T, Owner at The Old Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments, however, we would like to add that the loud music was a private party for a local residents 60th birthday. We do not normally have live music. Thank you for staying, we are looking at the room but we cannot see any peeling paint on the ceiling, which is quite strange! Many thanks Terry &...

We visited here in the evening for a drink as we were staying in a hotel in the village. They had live music which was great. It has a good atmosphere and is clean and tidy. We also came back for breakfast the next day which was delicious and inexpensive. The owners were very friendly and all the staff were...

My wife and I had a lovely weekend stay at the Old Inn. The price was really good for the area and the room was comfortable and clean. The hosts Terry and Kathy were really nice. Nothing was too much to ask of them. Terry gave us some much welcomed tips advice on exploring the local area. The vegetarian breakfast...

I stayed at the Old Inn on the weekend of 13th to 15th Nov when Devon was hit by a magnificent storm. My cliff walk to Salcombe might have been a miserable affair had it not been for the warmth & hospitalty offered by Terry & Kathy. Their advice on the route to follow during such dangerous conditions was invaluable...

“A traditional, Inn so no pool or trendy (& in my experience expensive) designer makeover; both of which would have spoiled the ambience.”
