Very clean. Lovely view. Very pleasant staff. We didn't eat but the menu looked interesting and the food fresh. Lovely selection of cakes and the hot chocolate was just what I needed on a wet winter's day.

Can not complain about the staff and food but. We only stopped for a pot of tea and one tea cake but at over £10.00 for basically two tea bags and a tea cake I feel that the view was better taken in from numerous other places both inside and out.

If you want to stop for coffee in Salcombe, the Wardroom has the best waterside location and beautiful views of the busy estuary. Tucked away at the rear of Crew Clothing, this cosy coffee shop also serves lunches and lots of delicious looking home made cakes. Staff were friendly and the coffee was good. Worth a visit, especially if you... More

We visited today and got a window table for our lunch. Had a very tasty crab linguine and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Great food. Cheerful friendly staff and a lovely view out over the water. .. Thankyou.

Decided to drop by the Wardroom as had a few hours on our hands prior to lunch. Have to go through the clothing shop to get to it. If we hadn't been there before wouldn't have known it existed. Ordered a coffee and hot chocolate. Both excellent, especially the hot chocolate - luxury version. It's a pleasant small cafe that... More

Staff very helpful. We were astonished to be charged £5.95 for one average slice of bread with a thin layer of welsh rarebit! I should have complained then.... why do we brits have such a problem with speaking up!?

We had brunch here recently and the service, food and value for money were excellent. The female member of staff who looked after us was very patient and friendly. Our breakfasts all arrived within minutes and tasted delicious. The portion sizes were generous and nothing was undercooked or overcooked. The bonus at this little gem is the stunning views over...

This is a very special place for us as it was the first ever place we went for a long lazy lunch when we first met! Service and food is always great. Especially now Claud and Christina are working here. My husband's soup wasn't hot enough but this was quickly sorted with no fuss or drama so not an issue.... More
