We had booked here for dinner, as reviews have said it is dog friendly and it was near enough to us to walk from where we were staying. We had booked a table online, and when we arrived, they had a table ready for us. The owner/manager was super dog friendly, and came to say hi to our doggies with treaties, which we are greatly appreciative of. We ordered starters of mozarella sticks and chicken strips. They did not have mozarella left, but they were versatile in suggesting swapping it for halloumi sticks, which we were happy with. The chicken strips were succulently tender and battered enough, and not too salty very rare, and my huge compliments to the chef for achieving that! For mains, my husband had a mixed grill, while I had the rump steak. Mine was cooked medium rare, which was what I requested and they had done that to the latter. My husband's mixed grill they did not have one of the components, but they were fantastic in swapping it to something else acceptable to my husband, so all good! The drinks were lovely as well, and the whole meal was not too expensive! The only down side is we could not leave a tip, as they did not accept it on card, and we did not bring any cash with us! A real shame, but we will definitely be coming back again if we are in the area!

We stayed at the Balfour Arm for a couple of days. The owner and staff we amazing. They made us and our two Springer dog’s extremely welcome. The bedroom were nice with a good en-suite loads of hot water. The location to Sidmouth was perfect an easy walk either through the street or as one of the staff told up along the river Byes Rooms: 3 Service: 3

We booked for a Sunday lunch for 3 of us although when we got there is was very quiet in the restaurant area. The staff were friendly and the food was very good. We all had the roast (2 beef, 1 veggie) and were impressed with the portion sizes and quality of the food.
