I have not eaten at the Lighter for a few years, but have supped a few pints at a family re-union arranged recently.

The staff were very helpful , above the call of duty, of just serving.

The only thing that makes the Lighter Inn special, is the fact that Dan Trout built boats there. The family business has shifted a few hundred metres up river now , south of the causeway. In his day, Dan was the stoic Harboumaster and master boat builder, and few local people would ever forget Uncle Reg who was the 'lively fire brand' brother.

Situated on the historic quay at Topsham this is a good place for lunch if you are visiting the area. The lunch we had was great and the staff very helpful and attentive.

Nice location and a reasonable priced lunch. Waiting staff were very friendly and offered a nice table overlooking the quay. Would visit again next time we are in area.

Me and my partner came to this place after walking though topsham. I love the bar man he was well chatty and made a really effort with us. We sat down and within 15 mins our food came out. Now for the really good bit. We both had the prawn and pepper risotto, and I got to be truthful so here goes. OMG it was well nice, I mean like WOW. So going back if it's on the specials board again.

We are moving to the area shortly and went here as recommended by trip advisor. Easy booking system, lovely staff and delicious food. We had the burgers (doubled up, a mistake as they were HUGE) and the sharing pudding which were nice but smaller than expected. We will be making regular visits here and would say to anyone else if in the area pop in and have a drink, soak up the relaxed atmosphere on the quay and enjoy :-)
