We tend to eat here every time we visit salcombe and the food and service is always consistent and of a very high standard. Well worth visiting but book in advance as normally no tables free for walk in customers.

We had a really good meal here. The specials were varied and interesting. The smoked haddock was excellent. Also the staff took time to chat to all the customers and made the meal even more enjoyable.
