Wow what an amazing place to eat .
The food is wonderful and the service fantastic.
You will need to book to get a table for dinner but well worth it .

We came in summer and sat outside. It got a bit chilly but the patio heaters & blankets saved the day. The service was superb - food came out very quickly and was delicious. We were celebrating our wedding so the team there gave us a little chocolate pot desert on the house . Lovely touch and much appreciated

Too busy. Very average food. In fact 3 out of 4 main courses had to be returned - awful. Very expensive . There are much better places to eat in Salcombe.

We booked Dick and Wills at least two weeks in advance and were told we could only have 6.45 pm on the Friday evening. Thats ok we can eat early and not rush we thought.
The restaurant is in a great location and the staff are lovely and very attentive. Too attentive to be honest. We were rushed along from start to finish. We arrived at 6.45 and were out just after 8pm. That included trying to have a quiet drink before the starters arrived, they actually almost came together! The food was ok, my sons Rib eye tasted like it had been marinated in salt!.. but he loved it so no problem. I think on any given night it would be fine and a lot less 'rushed'. The problem was that the owner was there. He sort of hovered not doing very much at all. That's fine if you are keeping an eye on your guests rather than the staff. They were all going out of their way to do their jobs extra well but ended up just rushing us. They tried to clear the plates even while we were still eating. Not their fault just that they were trying to impress the boss. If you are the owner of a restaurant like this you should try and relax the staff and ensure that your guests are happy. We mentioned the over seasoned steak to the waitress and although Dick was there he didn't pop over just to check... as I say, it was nice, the food was ok, the view was great, the staff were lovely (if not a bit rushed even though they weren't very busy) but they could do with keeping the owner off the shop floor during service unless he is going to actually contribute in some way. I bumped into him on the stairs as we were leaving.... thought he might like to check how a customer liked his restaurant ... apparently not, too busy trying to look busy....shame.
