We ate at No55 last year and decided to go again this year. We received the same friendly welcome and excellent food, thoroughly recommend this lovely restaurant.

No 55 is a bit of an institution in Salcombe. Despite changes of ownership over the years, it continues to be popular and we hadn't been for a while. Our daughter/step-daughter and her boyfriend had a lovely dinner here a few weeks ago so we...More

Hi Alison O It's difficult to decide how to respond to your review, without coming across as rude, which we certainly aren't. I've searched through the recent reviews and can't seem to see that your family made one?! Perhaps not, but perhaps they did? As...More

We ate here a few years ago and it was very nice then, we heard there were new owners since then, not sure if that’s true though. The three of us ordered starters and mains, squid, whitebait, mushroom linguini and plaice, all were lovely. There...More
