Pubs may be closing by the dozen across Britain, but what sometimes gets forgotten is that many of them re-open, often as greatly enhanced incarnations of their former selves. The Salutation Inn an example of this: a seventeenth century pub that had hit hard times and been empty for two years. It and was taken over in 2010 and reopened two years later as a restaurant with rooms – some might say fulfilling its original remit as a country inn, offering weary travellers shelter for the night along with a morsel of food and sustenance. We reckon they're right on the money with the shelter for the night bit, with four bright, spacious rooms and two suites, all turned out in crisp white tones, very comfortable beds and en-suite bathrooms with upscale toiletries. Indeed it's no surprise that they won Food & Travel Magazine's Best UK B&B award in 2016. Service is excellent and Topsham is a lovely place to stay, handy both for Exeter and the coast at Exmouth, plus a nice touch is the first-floor Galley, where you can get yourself a tea, coffee or a snack at any time of day or night. That's if you can resist the downstairs Glasshouse café and/or main restaurant – and we bet you won't!
