Reviews - The Abbey Inn

3Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
30 Buckfast Road, , , Buckfastleigh, TQ11 0EA
Are you looking for fabulous accommodation in the Dartmoor National Park or an unforgetable dinning experience or even great pub food in Buckfastleigh? Then The Abbey Inn can exceed all your expectations, and provide the location and a service that is sure to leave all her guests completely satisfied. Tucked inside the Dartmoor National Park, and nestled beautifully into the banks of the River Dart, The Abbey Inn, an old quarry house, remains completely hidden from view of the road. Yet from its large car park, looking down the landscaped drive towards the Buckfast Bridge, a three story eighteenth century building, proudly overlooking the River Dart. Despite its short distance from the A38 and cities of Plymouth, Torquay, Totnes and Exeter, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were a million miles away. Yet we are ideally located, with the world famous Buckfast Abbey just a 2 minute walk away and in the Dartmoor National Park, the Abbey Inn is idealy situated for all the local attractions, including: •- Miniature Pony Centre •- Pennywell Farm •- Otter Sanctuary •- South Devon Steam Railway •- Dartmoor National Park •- Buckfast Abbey •- Fishing and Kayaking on the River Dart The Abbey Inn on the edge of the Dartmoor National park is therefore ideally situated for holiday makers and tourists, as well as for businessmen working in the surrounding areas. At the heart of the Abbey Inn is her restaurant and traditional bar, no pub TV's or gaming machines, just an open fire, great food, award winning beer, Cask Marque Real Ales, excellent wines and the constant flow of water past the extensive river side terrace. Through the bar into the restaurant a traditional English dining experience awaits, with our chefs offering homemade food, freshly cooked and locally sourced. And for those wanting a relaxing get away the Abbey Inn has eight well appointed en-suite rooms overlooking the River Dart, perfect for a quick break, business trip or extended vac

A nice place to stay
The decor of the room was a bit tired but it was well presented and clean, the service and food were excellent the outside area was very pleasant in the evening we even saw a Kingfisher fly along the river.

It's a small cosy traditional pub in a fantastic location by the river. It has a good restaurant, comfortable rooms and friendly hosts. There is free wi-fi throughout and although it's difficult to get a mobile phone signal, that's not their fault. There is also ample parking.

Great food and service. Small defects but nothing drastic.
Some defects to bathroom, only minor and renovation is planned. Am sure these will be put right by the new proprietors who are extremely conscientious. Home made food at a great price and good customer service. Freshly made full English breakfast included in price. Nice local pub atmosphere. Good room price and will definitely stay again as we travel this route regularly. Good value all round.

Good Food, Drink & Service
Good food. Good selection of real ales. Good, friendly service. Local pub atmosphere or restaurant environment - it has both. Great location. Bedrooms getting a bit tired but not charging Hilton rates either. I will stay again without hesitation.
