Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We couldn’t find anywhere in Salcombe that was open or that we fancied for some lunch during a visit there. So when we spotted this deli, we thought we’d give it a try and have a take away instead. What a brilliant find. !!!!!! The...food was exceptionally good and great value, we thoroughly enjoyed our sandwiches, looking out over the harbour on a nearby bench. The gent who served us was very polite and friendly. Highly recommend.More

Super find. Fresh, tasty Sandwiches and salad. We had two crab sandwiches and prawn salad and Brie salami one too. Lots of filling, fresh ingredients and so much better than a pre packaged deal you find elsewhere. It’s a take away not eat in, so...we walked down and sat overlooking the harbour. Lots of varied deli type wonders can be found here. Highly recommend.More

Had an air bnb very close to the deli. Popped in before going to the beach. Two amazing sandwiches. Freshly made, gorgeous produce, delicious! So good that we ended up visiting two more times, including taking sandwiches for the journey home. Huge sandwiches, more than...enough to share, well worth the money. Some delightful items in the shop too! We encountered several members of staff, all super helpful and friendly. Highly recommend, we’ve left the menu on the pinboard in the accommodation for others to enjoy!More

What a great place this is! We had the freshly made sandwiches (and I do mean freshly made!) which were fantastic. If you have a better sandwich than this I'd like to know where from! I had Mozzarella and my partner had Goats Cheese, freshly...made whilst you wait (they kindly give you a pager so you can wander round) We came back and had the same a few days later which was just as good. The pasties & sausage rolls etc all looked very tempting but I couldn't manage one as well. Great little place well worth a visit, but you may need to wait a bit whilst the make it :-)More

The four of us bought our lunch from here at least three times over our weeks stay in Salcombe. A great find. Between us we had various sandwiches, baguettes & pasties. The sandwiches are FULL of delicious fillings, prepared to order. Would definitely recommend.

We called for a sandwich, but they had stopped making them, but they were extremely helpful by selling us the ingredients for us to make our own ! You could not fault the food and we will definitely return

We made a stop here for a quick lunch. We ordered several traditional pasties and one gluten free pasty all of which tasted amazing! (Best gluten free pasty we’ve tried) The gentleman serving was very knowledgeable about gluten free practices ensuring that the risk of...cross contamination was minimised. Will definitely be going back!More

We visited this Deli when we had a day trip in Salcombe because we saw how highly rated it was from looking at previous Tripadvisor reviews. There is a huge selection of different sandwiches available, as well as pastries and other savoury items. I decided...to have a crab sandwich and it was delicious. The bread and fish were so fresh. I would definitely re-visit this place in the future. I have heard that the Deli gets very busy and foods sell out quickly, so I would advise getting there as soon as you can or pre-ordering your food online before you visit to avoid disappointment.More

Crusty bread, loads of white crab meat. Could have been heavy or stodgy or chewy but was none of those things. Despite it being peak Saturday lunch, wait time was the ten minutes that they said when we ordered. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended.

You could tell from the queue it was popular and it was worth the short wait. Both our baguettes were overflowing with very generous fillings. Coronation Chicken in one and Ham and Mozarella in the other. Both delicious and a reasonable price.

Sooo good. We visited here yesterday and the food was tremendous. We all had something different and unusually these days everything we ordered was correct! I had the Salcombe Deli baguette which was Milano Salami, Emmental, Gherkins, Lettuce, Tomato, Mayonnaise and wow how good was...it. Highly recommend this place and 1-2 mins further up the road were a couple of covered seating areas with a lovely view over the bay.More
