We booked dinner last Saturday with a level of expectation after the recent re-opening and with hope that the legacy of the stuffy and scruffy Marine Hotel was now being left well behind. The food was excellent, fresh local produce and a strong slant on fish and seafood. The service was faultless - great to see a young motivated team trying as hard with great enthusiasm. The decor is wonderful, strong New England themes and once the building work is completed the views will be amazing.
Its important that the Hotel sticks to its intentions, it was a shame that a few boring "oldies" can dictate to all who were there and demanded that the music in the restaurant should be turned off. This Hotel needs to move on from the old Marine and its boring traditional clientele - this Hotel needs to be young at heart to offer luxury and a lively atmosphere. The Hotel is modern and Salcombe needs the lift and a new destination for that special but lively meal.
We also witnessed an appalling incident when a old customer (one of the turn off the music complainers) rudely berating one of the young staff in a quite inappropriate fashion - just because the card machine would not get a prompt signal. This innapropriate behaviour from a person who was intolerant and selfish quite spoiled our meal
We strongly recommend the Hotel, the Restaurant and the Bar area. Keep the faith and please understand that many of us are looking forward to the final finished product and a lively atmosphere.
