“Excellent food, Atmosphere and price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Visited here in late April while visiting Dartmouth with my Wife and little boy (3) We came across the pub while walking on the front. The pub had a very good atmosphere and welcoming staff. The menu had a good selection of food however there is no childs menu. They will do half portion of standard meals but no dedicated childs menu., Food was well cooked, presented and tasted great would def recommend people to eat there if you are visiting the area.

“Unplanned meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We were enjoying a Sunday afternoon drink or two in the Dartmouth Arms having just arrived in Dartmouth. Hadn't planned for a have a meal there but as feeling extremely comfortable seemed a pity to go elsewhere. Decided to have fajitas and was not disappointed. Would certainly go back when next in Dartmouth.

“Cosy and Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

We stumbled across this pub in the backstreets of Dartmouth, we were made to feel welcome and were offered a bowl of water for our dog. The food was reasonably priced, home made and most importantly delicious!!

We would be more than happy to visit again were we in the area and would recommend for anyone with a dog in tow who wants a good meal.

“Updated menu very enticing !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

To regular readers of our reviews it must be obvious that this is our favourite pub in Dartmouth, for a lunch we always enjoy, but now we are faced with many more choices, in which to indulge, and it is obvious that on our next visit we will be sampling other dishes. Even though we do have our favourite.

What is good is that the pizzas offer two bases, for those with a gluten intolerance, there is a different base and you can choose a different cheese, and now with all the new toppings, one is spoilt for choice, whatever your taste and diet requirements.

This pub offers tasty food at good value and we are both bewildered by the previous review, as our portions and those of other eaters have always been generous. I can only hope that he had the courtesy to mention the fact to someone before making such a review.

It has always been our policy when reviewing anywhere, we mention our concerns to an owner or staff before making a negative comment, there are no pirates in the Dartmouth Arms, only the ghosts of customers past !

You will not be disappointed, whatever your choice, the new owners offer good bar food at reasonable prices in congenial surroundings, and we look forward to our future visits,

“Watch out for pirates”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014 via mobile

Although you don't risk being captured in Dartmouth perhaps some pubs and restaurants see you as a captive audience. Sadly this was my experience last weekend. Perhaps the early spring sunshine made me feel light headed but when I entered the DA in early afternoon I failed to realise the small number of diners (2) when other pubs I had walked past were busy. I expect pubs to make a living and make a profit on food, fine.
Sorry but a small slice of cheese, bread roll, lettuce and a quarter of a small tomato plus pickle served in an eye bath is not a ploughman's lunch. Not an £8 one anyway. Poor.
