The Royal Oak is situated centrally in the stunningly pretty, village of Dolton, minutes from Halsdon nature reserve, Dartmoor National Park and the nationally renowned Stafford Moor Coarse Fishery. In rural mid-Devon we also have excellent access to many
For the second year in a row a group of friends have stayed here during a two day bicycle ride from Ilfracombe to Plymouth. The Royal Oak is a delightfully genuine 'English Pub' and we were made so very welcome by the Landlord, his wife and all the many local people in the bar. The atmosphere is great and we had a lovely evening and a delicious supper with lots of merry banter and a lively scene. The food was excellent with a delicious Short Rib in Guinness Jus,(sic), good fish and chips and lots of choice of good pub food.We stayed the night and the rooms are fine with nothing too fancy, but a comfortable bed, TV, Tea making kit and homely dÃ©cor.Breakfast in the morning was a very good 'Full English' with unlimited toast, coffee etc.We thoroughly enjoyed both our stays at The Royal Oak and will stay there again if we pass that way once more.

The evening food is good enough, not stunning but certainly pleasant enough for one evening. The portions are a good size and it is well presented. However the dessert (lemon cheesecake) was probably one of the best I have had. Breakfast was delicious especially the scrambled egg.

My accommodation was very new and comfortable. Far above what I would expect at a pub. This was the best shower I have experienced in England. I also had a very nice vegetarian meal. There's a very lively scene in the pub, but it didn't disturb me in my room.

Had Sunday lunch at The New Inn and was very impressed with the quality of food, the standard of service and friendly welcome. A very comprehensive menu with some veggie options, we had the roast beef which was delicious. In my view one of the best pubs for Sunday lunch in the district.The pub is welcoming of dogs which is important to us when we eat out.

The Globe Inn - where great food, good ales, local cider and friendly service is our passion. Children, muddy boots, wet dogs and their well behaved owners are always welcome.
My wife and I visited North Devon for the bank holiday weekend and chose to spend all 3 nights here. Jimi and Sam were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble. They recommend things to see and do and made us feel very welcome throughout our stay.The room was spotless and we loved the decor. The bed was large and very comfortable and the big rainfall shower was superb. Breakfast was made to order by Sam and was stunning. I could tell the food was fresh and locally sourced. My wife is a vegetarian and was delighted with the variety and quality of vegetarian options.We ate dinner here twice and both times we were blown away by the quality of the food, particularly considering how well priced the menu is. We tried the burger, steak, veggie chilli nachos and pulled pork, all of which were excellent quality and well cooked. My wife has family in North Devon who joined us at the Globe for dinner on Sunday and loved it. I think they may become Sunday regulars.The pub itself is what I would call a proper pub. The locals are friendly and up for a chat and Jimi's knowledge of beer is very impressive. They had a range of craft beers so I told him the kind of beer I liked and he recommended a few which all went down well (probably too well). The gin and rum selection was also very enjoyable. My pregnant wife was also impressed with the range of non-alcoholic beers and fizz. The music in this place is a other big positive for me. Jimi and Sam are clearly music lovers and have an awesome selection of vinyl. We enjoyed Bowie, Led Zep, The Hold Steady and Mansun.On our last night we took part in the pub quiz. The atmosphere was buzzing and we enjoyed the banter with the locals. The location was perfect for us too as we were able to get to Exmoor, Bude, Westwood Ho! and Dartmoor over the weekend.It's fair to stay we loved everything about our stay here and will certainly be back when we next visit Devon.

The Fox & Hounds Country Hotel in Eggesford (near Chulmleigh), is set in grounds bordering the River Taw, in the heart of the Devon countryside. This family-owned hotel and restaurant is a delightful and unpretentious spot for meals and riverside walks be
Two night short break, evening meal included on first night. Not a bad evening meal, but lacking in atmosphere. Breakfasts (both days) very good. Room excellent - location great for a dog friendly get away.Thank you for your kind review. I'm awfully sorry you felt our restaurant was lacking in atmosphere, it is a quiet peaceful one I'm afraid opposed to a busy pub. Hopefully we can welcome you back in the future for a longe rbreak. Kind Regards,Nick

Service with a smile, prompt & attentive without being pushy. Because of timescale we were only able to visit once, wish we could have returned but there's always a next time.I believe no matter what you order your not going to be disappointed, we certainly weren't. The menu isn't extensive but ample, you know whatever you order is freshly cooked & delicious. I gave 4 star simply because the decor could be improved.

For several years I looked forward to visiting the Lymington Arms - varied menu, good choice, food well cooked and presented, friendly knowledgable staff and excellent service. All has changed. The menu is very limited - pub grub at its worst. The staff are novice like and the service is below par. The food is inadequately cooked - my medium/rare rump steak came as well done ( I rarely order steak when dining out unless there is simply nothing else attractive on the menu !!). The atmosphere is nothing like it used to in the past. The acid test is always whether I would readily return to an establishment. In this case I cannot envisage a return at any time in the near future.

It has been a while unfortunately since I last visited my favourite ever pub,but at last returned on Saturday to find it exactly the same , unchanged & unspoilt. A truly amazing setting, the village fete was on, the green was being used for this as well as the village hall & the pub was the centre of the whole thing. Full of happiness,eating great food, enjoying pefect cask ales in a truly blissful setting. Well done The Duke of York,always worth the trip, never disappoints. I will certainly be back as my wife & my dog love it there to.

Under new ownership, The Kings Arms is a traditional pub with great ales, wines, gins and a fabulous menu
Wow, the Kings Arms is back to being a fabulous country pub again and boy does it deliver. Fantastic food, lovely beer and a real pub vibe, no juke box or machines, just friendly local chatter with incomers made to feel most welcome. The Sunday lunch, beef, is stunning and filling, the menu during the week is varied and again itâs all cooked to perfection, including the chips Definitely 5*
