The meals were all excellent except the bread and butter pudding, which only seem partly cooked.The trips were excellent especially enjoyed that one to Dartmoor The extra bonus was having £50-00 per couple to spend on drinks.

Excellent hotel, meals and service extremely good. We went on a trip with Shearings, and it is one of their Coast & Country hotels. Very convenient for the town centre shops and pubs, and also very convenient for getting around the Devon coast by train.

Pleasantly surprised , pulled up at entrance , not good kerb appeal .However welcome and efficiency of booking in was excellent. Upgrade was well worth it,( room. 120) sea view with balcony.Grounds and gardens where extensive and well maintained. Food menu was Shearing normal offering not massive portions. but adequate. Would happily revisit.
