Good breakfast-little else to compliment this place!!

This pub is a drab and dreary place which needs updating but so does South Brent.The room was adequate and the bed comfortable but the rip in the curtain,the tatty sash windows to one side,the dangerous quality of the shower which ran scalding then cold,the wash basin which was loose on the wall and the disgraceful damp in the side wall behind the sink made us decide that one night was enough.

There is no eating area apart from the bar itself with three or four tables to one side of the fireplace. However the freshly cooked breakfast was very good.

The Pack Horse

This was our 2nd stay at The Pack Horse and we had the same room as last year which as a lovely view of the Dartmoor hills, Room was spacious and clean, a good variety of cereals and fresh fruit was available for breakfast, and the full English was excellent.

Thanks to the proprietor's for another very enjoyable stay.

Lovely friendly place to stay.

Great service on arrival, bags taken to my room.

Lovely room, bright and clean. Dinner was good and was served promptly. Locals friendly and enjoyed a bit of banter with them. Had a great sleep experience, top quality linen on beds. Good breakfast too, would stay again if working in the area.

Nice Room, odd food

We had a very nice stay at the Pack Horse, lovely room, friendly staff but unfortunately the food was a little poor.

Edible and an effort was made but standard pub grub at best. The culinary technique is obviously there but maybe reduce the quantity of the menu options and concentrate on produce and a few great options. Room was lovely though, well cleaned and loads of tea coffee etc. I'd stay again of food was improved.

Overnight stay after a Tango new year party

The room in this 18th century Inn was very warm and welcoming with a lovely comfortable bed.

The bathroom was as warm as toast which, on a December night, is a major plus. As it was new years eve when we stayed, we weren't given a strict time for breakfast and ambled downstairs when we were ready to a lovely full English. I am happy to say that I think we have found somewhere that we will use in the future when we travel up from Cornwall to dance events in the area.

Lovely stay, would definitely recommend

We booked last minute and we were only there for one night, but we would stay again if we are in the area.

We had travelled for 4 hours to get there and were tired and hungry. We were looked after brilliantly and the food was lovely. It was especially good to sit with our drinks next to the roaring fire. The room was perhaps a little dated but we weren't at all bothered. It was clean and very comfortable. I could have stayed in bed all day it was so comfy. The breakfast was very good and we definitely felt the whole stay was brilliant value for money.

Thank you chef!

I was travelling alone and sat by the fire in the bar working which was really comfortable.

Room was very good value for money, clean with extra finishing touches for added luxury. The chef really stood out, he was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble at breakfast. Highly recommend staying here
