A wonderful pub inn exceptional food and the hosts Jo & Mat are lovely helpful and welcoming. We was there for my uncle John funeral, and so special for us because he always went there for Sunday lunch . Thank you so much for making our stay such a pleasant experience even though a little sad . We would not hesitate in recommending your lovely pub restaurant to all .

This was our second visit to Butterleigh Inn with friends and our Labrador as a stopover enroute to the far South West. Butterleigh Inn is a wonderful proper Devon pub hidden away off the beaten track. Welcoming with great food, rooms and hospitality. We will be back again soon.

Nice rural village pub. Quite narrow lanes to get there, but well worth the journey. Friendly locals, excellent ales, room was spot on. Comfy bed, good shower. Breakfast was really good. Pet friendly. Landlady was very welcoming & chatty. Will definitely go back.

We had lunch here. It was delicious and the portions were very generous. Had lots of character and a lovely atmosphere. Felt relaxed with our 6 month old. The land lady was very welcoming and made us feel at home.

We were desperate for an evening meal as we were visiting relatives in Tiverton. We’d booked to stay the other side of Tiverton and they couldn’t serve us dinner. I think the chef had gone home! Anyway after many phone calls that evening, the Butterleigh welcomed us and we had the best time. Lovely landlords, great staff, great fun, great food. We will be back.

Stayed here for one night whilst visiting family, the pub itself is located in a lovely area. However that's all I can say positive about this place oh and the breakfast was lovely! On arrival no one was there to meet us, I had to yell through the pub area. The room itself; outdated, dark and unclean. The pictures do not reflect the room. The bed is uncomfortable, the pillows are non existence so bring your own. The duvet is hard and bobbly as it's obviously old and been washed ALOT. After spending the day out in the rain and wind, we were both cold so tried to turn the heating on, we were unsuccessful. The heating is on a timer so in the morning it came on and the room was to hot. Maybe it should be up to the individual room as to when they would like to warm up the room. The shower had mould inside and had not been cleaned for a while. On leaving a review on booking. Com I received a private message from the owner. A very passive aggressive message that made me feel uncomfortable. Just take a look at his replies to people who have left lower rating in the Inn. Maybe take feedback and learn from it. The two stars are for the breakfast and the dog.

Response from Matthew Gorton, Owner at The Butterleigh Inn
Responded Nov 15, 2022
Hi Jackle. In previous correspondence elsewhere, you ended our exchange, which I respected as we had both had our say regarding your recent one night stay. Subsequently, with a quest that could appear obsessive, you posted another review here, which is difficult to overlook. Sometimes, a review pops up where the writing style and language used by the author seems to tell a bigger story than its actual content. We still cannot comprehend what has prompted this level of annoyance. We acknowledge that there are some ‘wear and tear’ decorative issues we have to address, and we have inspected the bed, pillows and bedding and we replace items regularly. The room had definitely been cleaned, although we regret this fell short of your standard – our cleanliness score on B.com is currently running at 9.3 out of a possible 10. We are trying to arrive at the optimum solution for the provision of heating at a time when energy costs have soared, and when many guests find the rooms too warm. We accept your observation regarding lighting and have increased the brightness of main lamps. We had already scheduled an upgrade for all bathroom lighting to safer, brighter fittings. Notably, I understand that Jo enquired, as she always does at breakfast, whether you experienced a comfortable night, and you said nothing to indicate to the contrary that may have enabled us to offer something by way of an apology. We are never complacent, but subsequent to your visit, guests staying in the same room have given ratings of more than double that you gave, and the average rating for the pub since then is running at just below 9/10, with a comfort score of 9.1 and a bed rating of 8.6, all substantiated on Booking.com. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your visit, but are happy that our dog and the breakfast escaped your ire, which at least demonstrates some empathy for the character of the pub and it’s hardworking staff.

Stayed overnight in a twin room whilst visiting relatives in the area. Super dog friendly place ( no issues with our Staffy !!), very hospitable, helpful and welcoming staff. The Inn is set in a lovely quiet rural spot with plenty of space to just chill and relax. Rooms are clean and comfortable with plenty of tea and coffee provided. Food is exceptional and the breakfast provided is cooked to absolute perfection. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Thank you for a great stay. WIth Jo working hard as front of house, the meet and greet was friendly and relaxing. This was a relaxing break for me, a stopover before onward to Cornwall to meet friends. The warmth and hospitality of the staff was just lovely. Thank you for Emily and Louise for making me feel so welcome, service was quick. What also made this a great place was the friendly 'locals' who use the public house. I was made to feel like one of them for a few hours. Thank you to Steve and Matt for a great meal. The duck was cooked well and cooked to order. The selection of beers to chose from was good. Having checked out the following morning and loaded my bike, I wasn't in a rush and I stayed for the Sunday Lunch, wow, just lovely. This is a carvery affair - 3 meats, and lots and lots of veg. If you had water a vegetarian option, this was also avaailbel but they ask that some notice is given before hand. Thank you to you all - I will be back.

I had a reservation for June 2022. It was confirmed through booking.com and the Buttleigh Inn cancelled because they had over booked!! No assistance provided to compensate for the extra cost of alternative accommodation. Beware when booking this place!!!

We were totally truthful to you about our error in overbooking, and offered an on site alternative at a 50% discount which was unacceptable to you, which we accepted. At that point, with only a one night stay, surely most people would just cancel and find somewhere else - we're all grown up after all, and your proposed stay was over three weeks away...You are economical in the truth - we undertook to accept any extra charges in re-booking your stay elsewhere by Booking.com, and we took immediate action to re-locate you. We have never had to do this previously (which we told you), so I wonder about your questionable attitude in seeking to hurt a rural business in the aftermath.....I would welcome your call to discuss this in person - 01884855433,

Came here for a meal with family as some were staying overnight. We all had pies which were great quality and good portion sizes for the price. Really friendly atmosphere and attentive staff. I live locally and will definitely be back in the future.
