Tried this for the first time this year. At lunchtime, the outside was packed. Came back for dinner later and plenty of outside space. Good burgers and beer. Good view over the river. Dog friendly

We went in here for coffee to escape the crowds in the other coffee places in Salcombe; very good coffee, lovely view of the water and plenty of space.
