“Great place for amgood pub lunch”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

We had a very good lunch here while in Salcombe. It was a wet day so we could not sit outside, but staff were helpful in finding us a table. The beer was good and the menu had lots of home made choices . The fish was very good as was the home made burger, but the fish chowder was truely excellent and definatly something to go back for. For a great pub style lunch we would reccomend . When the sun is shining the outside area is a great place to sit and watch the world go by.

“Pretty decent pub food in the centre of Salcombe”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Was recommended to visit by the B&B owner and wasn't disappointed. Not much to look at but the outside space is nice if the sun shines. First night had fish and chips with locally caught Bream - it was absolutely gorgeous. Second night I went back and had steak and Stilton pie - again, really tasty home made food. All in all, highly recommended for some decent home made pub grub in the centre of Salcombe.

Hello, Apologies if the scampi was not as good as it should be. Kris in the kitchen changes our oil at least once per week and we buy the most expensive scampi available. Thank you for your visit
Best regards
