On the way to the Old Church House Inn you really wonder if you're on the right track given the narrow winding roads all I can say is what a find! .... My hubby and I had a two night stay over bank holiday weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were in Room 12 (Rabbit) which is beautifully decorated and...

The Old Church House Inn ticks all the boxes when it comes to what a quintessentially English pub should be. Olde worlde and dripping with interesting features, from a door linked to the Crusades to wood panelling allegedly from a ship of the Spanish Armada. Add a resident ghost and you've got the lot. There's even the slightly bizarre claim...

Such a lovely place to stay...high quality, spotless and good value. Food...the freshest vegetables and absolutely gorgeous food. Open fires and cosy with nooks to sit in. Mixing with the locals and hearing the history was priceless. Would I recommend this quaint old pub to any travellers looking for some history and a massive warm welcome. Absolutely!

This is a country pub that is everything you can imagine a country pub should be. Very old with a fascinating history , ghost(s) ? that make your dog sit up take notice. Wood burning stoves and a great atmosphere. Staff are very welcoming and attentive and locals friendly...generally but always entertaining. Food is lovely

Sometimes you just get lucky. I came upon this gem on one of the booking sites a few hours before I landed. The room I had was recently refurbished and was exceptional. As the pub is in the middle of nowhere the water pressure isn't great so plan ahead and start running your bath early. The owner couldn't do enough...

Lovely hotel and country pub. Great food in the evening. Very helpful about leaving breakfast for us as we had any early start. Very comfortable beds and lively rooms. Would return for a more relaxing weekend.

From the moment we walked through the door to when we left the next day, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast it's safe to say is THE BEST ever. Just brilliant. Log fires very welcoming Taxis ordered, drinks in the bar after the party at the relatives house was over. Just fab. Very personal service. Couldn't fault the Old...

Recently came back from a second horse racing jaunt here after having had such a great time last year. (Handy for Newton Abbot & Exeter Races). The choice of food and drink was very good so did not even have to think about going somewhere else for an evening meal. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful and when...

After arrival we went to have a shower only to find that room 8 only has a hand shower on bath tap also water trickled out. Spoke to reception and they were unable to offer any help. Talking to other guests they did not have this problem. Next morning I spoke with Manager who advised that the bathroom has just...
