The Dartmoor Inn sits just a stone’s throw from Tavistock and Princetown, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner reservations, with breath-taking views across Dartmoor as the perfect backdrop.

The menu is 100% organic with everything sourced from a wonderful selection of small, local producers. The traditional Devon bar offers a fine selection of the best local, organic ales from the barrel, alongside organic wines, cocktails, mixers and soft drinks.

    It was shut down and boarded up !! So no breakfast !! We followed map directions which then took us to the Dartmoor inn in Lydford which when we arrived told us no this was the wrong Dartmoor inn and they didn’t serve food either so after a 25 mile round trip and still hungry we went home !!

    Really tasty roast dinners, who catered for both myself (Vegetarian) and meat lovers. My one slight criticism would be lack of space. We were seated between two other tables, once seated we couldn't move as chairs were back to back. However, eaten there before and this was the first time this has occurred, so suspect it's due to that particular table arrangement area. Overall great food and great service.

    Absolutely incredible! Would recommend to anyone, easily the best Sunday roast me and my partner have ever had. Everything was delicious, from the veggies to our perfectly cooked rare sirloin to share. We requested an Irish coffee and the barmaid was super helpful making a yummy Irish coffee but with rum instead of whiskey - on request! Can not wait to go back!

    Best steak dinner I’ve ever had. Return trip already booked Dinner for 2 ——£84. Unbelievable..sharing first course, 2 mains, 1 desert, large vodka and big spring water All this secondary to THE STEAK 10oz sirloin, medium rare. Cooked above charcoal in the restaurant. 28 day hung, organic. I buy a lot of steaks from independent local butcher’s. None have come close With perfect chips and a delicious salad. AWESOME.

    The music was loud to the point that it hampered conversation during the meal. The service was poor: for both starters and mains we had to wait too long for the final meals to come to the table thus the first meals served were going cold. The tables weren’t cleared very well after each course, including cutlery dropped onto guests. Finally, getting attention to order drinks for the table was difficult. For these reasons I did not leave the customary 10% tip.

    As always the food is amazing. But the service this time was shocking. We had to wait 15mins after ordering for a pint of larger and bottle of water. The soup arrived with no soup spoon. When we attempted to get some attention to request one, we were told to wait. We ordered for 5 people but there was only 4. A chateaubriand, 2 sirloins and a chicken dish. Only enough sides for 4 came out. We asked the question as we come here all the time, be to sighed at and 2 more veg dishes to come out. We were only gave 4 yorkshires but 5 should have came out. Again we were met with a sighed and raised eyes when requested. I was told that it was “unheard off” to have my steaks medium and I should have medium rear or rear. And because of that i had to wait for my steak after everything was served, even though one of the other sirloins were medium and already on the table. We then had to request serving spoons for the 6 separate dishes, which again was met with a sigh and raised eyes. The gravy had a thick layer of fat on top of it. I got a bowl and continued to sift the fat off with a spoon. This was met with the chef (proprietor) taken the bowl off me. He then went on to say “IF YOU DONT LIKE IT, DONT COME BACK” I would like to add, that at no point did we complain anyway through this meal. We simply politely asked for the spoons to eat with, the spoons to serve with, the drinks to drink. At the end of all this two of the table ordered deserts. A lemon tart and brownie, this took 25 mins to come out. The restaurant/pub wasn’t busy throughout this whole time. The food as always was amazing, but on this occasion the service wasn’t good at all. And the comments from the chef/proprietor was totally unprofessional and uncalled for. Not once did he offer his apologies. Even when requested at the time why he said those words. He didn’t even have an answer of why speak and treat a customer like that.

    Four of us pre-ordered the lobster / chateaubriand surf and turfs. They were outstanding as was the friendly and informative chef who prepared the food on the open fire / butchers block next to our table. Excellent recommendation for accompanying wine too. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!!!

    We have visited the Dartmoor Inn on several occasions and will continue to do so. The staff are superb. Attentive, humorous personable everything you could want from staff. And if you want your steak cooked exactly as you ask for (in my case a rare steak) then look no further. Exceptional.

    We booked a table informed them of dietary requirements, to which they said they could cater for ,when we arrived the 1st thing we noticed no disabled parking or facilities, then as we went in we could smell something not very nice ,the smell was raw ,uncovered meat being sliced and cut up ,the table the reserved for us was the one closest to the raw meat ,which for having a vegetarian in the party very bad ,I'm a meat eater and the smell and sight put me off ,no gluten free choice ,the vegetarian choice was cauliflower with chargrilled vegetables, and the vegan choice was chargrilled salad ,which I believe is cooked on the same grill as the meat, so we left after they were very rude to us

    Great atmosphere. Organic steaks and joints cooked on the fire were amazing and there was a great variety of very tasty organic sides with the Sunday lunch. The chef was very helpful and gave us various cuts to choose from. Also vegetarian, vegan and fish option. Would definitely recommend.

    Welcome not great, walked in on an argument argument with the chef at the fire with bar staff. Bar disappointing - barely anything on tap, no space to have drink at the bar when early. Food was good, nice sides with the roast, good value and nice flavours. Table service good too. Atmosphere lacking, squashed in a side room with far too many other tables. So much so the waitress banged the back of my chair every time she served the table behind me. Nice food, too many tables. Wouldn’t say it was an ‘Inn’ more of a crammed restaurant.
