This really is one of the best places in Salcombe to sit and while away a few hours for lunch whilst overlooking the sea and the boats. But......you’ll probably need a few hours because the service is rather slow. No complaints about the food when...More

We arrived a few minutes before the breakfasts stopped but luckily managed to get our order in in time. We had 3 full Englishes, eggs benedict (customised) and something with avocado (sorry, name escapes me). Very enjoyable and great views.
