I was attending a family gathering near Buckfastleigh and the Oak was the nearest hotel I could find. The place had recently been done up so the bedroom was fresh and clean. The breakfast was excellent and the people who ran it friendly. In the evening there were friendly locals at the bar and some very good beers. I could... More

Characterful pub in pleasant village not far from Plymouth and very easy to find. There was a nice friendly atmosphere in the bar which was enhanced by the absence of TV and piped music. Beer was very tasty and so was the food, which was good value. We had a one night stay, booked through TripAdvisor; our double en-suite room... More

Fantastic family run hotel. Rooms are so well kept and you get more toiletries, tea making facilities than you would in a 5 star hotel. Eat in the pub as the food is amazing and great value. A hidden gem

Thank you for leaving a review - good to see we are getting it right. Hopefully we will get the outside sorted soon - unfortunately this pub like the Forth Bridge and there is plenty needs doing inside first - the outside is a pretty major job too. More

We were really impressed with our room, we got the one with the four poster bed. Our hostess was brilliantly helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a real treat with loads of choice. Wifi was quite poor but I would definitely recommended The Oak Inn.

Hi Annette Many thanks for taking your time to leave a review - glad you enjoyed your stay. With regard to wifi we have just recently changed over to fibre optic not realising our existing access points wouldn't be able to cope. We have such thick walls and are looking into improving the wifi but at the moment the expense... More

Came here for a night with family, rooms were nice and very clean but very hot with all the lovely sunshine we had. Whenever I stay at a B&B in the countryside I get a bit excited about the breakfast, this was highly disappointing- overlooked poached egg, cheap sausage, tasteless bacon and cremated baked beans. No offer of tea/coffee refills... More

We are so glad your enjoyed your experience with us. We are a small run family pub with only a few staff, chosen for their friendliness, who end up being part of the family. We feel this gives us a relaxed and friendly environment for people to enjoy our home cooked food. We do not have any "ping" food here... More
