Been coming here now for quite a few years. Here today Friday 14th Dec for lunch. As usual not disappointed. We both had the gammon sizzlers. Cooked to perfection and very hot...even the chops. Excellent service with friendly staff who always look after you.

Had the steak sizzler at the Babbacome Inn Saturday night served quick and didn’t disappoint us, really nice food and helpful friendly staff shame the Elvis impersonator ruined the night, but will definitely go back as we always do when visiting Babbacombe.

Hi, I'm not sure either about the entertainment on a Friday or Saturday night at this time of year.. It may be best if you gave them a ring. Sorry I'm not much help. Hope you find out. Thanks, Deb
