We have eaten at The Vic' on many occasions, birthdays, anniversaries and times when we have just grasped the opportunity. The food and service is second to none! The evening specials, I have eaten both the fish and steak, are a treat and cooked to perfection, and, served by a truly professional team! Now, that's not all!!! Just venture into... More

We had a lovely lunch here with the family. The staff were friendly and the food was good. Service nice and quick even though it was quite busy. There were so many lovely touches, separate menu for dogs as well as dog blankets, a toy box for the children and a lovely warm log fire.

Loved this pub - came for lunch out of season, loved all the little touches like dog blankets/biscuits and dog menu! gorgeous interior, cosy fire, very reasonable prices, amazing seafood platter and great kids menu - oh and really fab service. Think it was Sam that served us, the staff all were lovely which really made a difference

Upstairs at the Victoria is the access to a lovely outside adventure play area which even has budgies and chickens. It is very clean, very friendly staff and excellent facilities, the only issue being that it does not sell local brewery beers and ales. It is a chain restricted to chosen beers.

Dear veritym142 Thank you for a really super 5 star review and we are delighted you enjoyed your visit to us. You're right, we don't sell Devon Beers as we are fully tied as tenants to the brilliant St Austell Brewery. Now St Austell is not just any old 'Chain' - this is a great family owned brewery with fantastic... More

We are regulars to Salcombe and always visit the Victoria. Buts what's happened? The bar staff were pretty miserable , ordered food and after 30 mins had not turned up , had to ask for money back ! Perhaps it was just an off day ? As it happens it made us find other places during our stay. Will give... More

Lovely pub that serves really great food- exceeding the old style "pub grub" by far. The service was excellent and very accommodating.

Description
The Victoria Inn has been run by Tim & Liz Hore since 2008. We pride ourselves on being a 'Traditional Pub, with Traditional Values'.

It has this year (2014) been awarded the Taste of the West Gold Award - awarded for locality of produce used, ambiance and high standards of service. We are the only pub in the South Hams to hold this prestigious award. National finalists In Licensee of the Year, finalists in Devon Life Family Friendly Dining Establishment as well as previous Fish & Chip award finalists.

We welcome children with their own menu selection of home cooked food and dogs with their own Al a Bark menu!

Bookings to eat with us are advised as we get extremely busy and hate to disappoint customers.
