Dining

The Hoops Inn has a well deserved reputation for fine food and drink and we are constantly working to develop and even improve on the fare we offer to our customers.

We endeavour to use high quality, local produce & suppliers including locally reared meat, locally caught fish and locally produced cheese and beer wherever possible to give our guests a true taste of the Westcountry.

Our restaurant can accommodate up to 50 diners, while the bar area seats 72 and the courtyard has space for 100 people in the Summer. We have ample free car parking (over 100 spaces) for our customers off the main road behind The Hoops Inn.

Private dining rooms are available if required.


Needing a getaway to recover from a really pressurized winter, we opted to stay at the Hoops for three nights in March. The weather was wonderful, but it was tempting to stay in - our room was under the thatch in the oldest part of the hotel and featured fireplace, panelling, stained glass and a very comfy half-tester bed with tapestry hangings. Window seats and a top-notch en-suite completed the picture. It's very quiet, despite fronting the road.? The inn itself had very friendly staff for whom nothing was too much trouble, a cosy bar and a restaurant, both with lots of nooks for a secluded meal. The bar menu was comprehensive and the restaurant fare stylish - but we found we could mix and match from both menus no matter where we decided to eat. There is a characterful 'snug' and a library space too. Breakfast was gargantuan - a huge choice of dishes including local kippers and smoked haddock with poached eggs, and as a touch of luxury at no extra cost smoked salmon with scrambled eggs.

?We loved it all and would go back again any time!? A stream runs through the garden, and wild birds keep you entertained. It's a great place to tour from, coast and moor and historic towns all within easy reach.?It's not cheap as a one-off at a published rate around 200 a room per night with breakfast, but there are often good deals to be had for three night stays: we paid a total of 195 B&B for three nights in a 'best' room.
