Unfriendly and rude welcome. Don't bother. I would rate this zero stars if I could so a rating of one is generous. We were visiting for the weekend and wanted a nice dinner in a dog friendly environment. Having got through the door to be...More

I don't think I have ever written a terrible review, but fellow tourists need a warning. Entered the bar area to be greeted with a throughly warm welcome of the off duty bar maid "Put your dog on a lead!". The dog was right by...More

The Rydon Inn is a converted traditional Devon Long House, it has been beautifully developed, with high vaulted ceilings exposing all the beam work in the main pub area, this also includes an unconventional thatched bar. The idealiac conservatory eating area over looks our large landscaped gardens and peaceful lake which houses outdoor seating for those long summer evenings. There is a pool table to keep you and the kids entertained. If you would like something a little more private we have our restaurant in the original part of the Devon Long House, which is ideal for more secluded smaller group meetings or dinners.
