“A quick pint.”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

I called in while doing part of the Dawlish 'Ale Trail'. A large pub that was quite busy and showing both cricket and football on TV when I visited on a saturday early afternoon. Well presented, I would call in again if in this part of Dawlish

Popped into this pub on a few occasions, good atmosphere and lovely outdoor area. Did not eat there, but looked like they did a good trade in food. Good for sports fans as even a TV outside.

“First visit to the Lansdowne”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 via mobile

We had spoken to a regular who we met at the Marine tavern as we were looking to have a meal and unfortunately they were not serving food on Tuesday so we made are way and we were not disappointed it is a proper pub which is nice to witness we ordered two rib eye steaks both cooked as we ordered and I must say as good as I have in much posher restaurants and a lot more expensive overall experience was it is what it says on the tin a very friendly local pub brilliant.

“Poor Night Out intimidating door staff”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

While visiting the Landsdown in Dawlish last weekend i can only describe the venue as poorly run. I found the staff behind the bar to be friendly but the door staff were not welcoming.Oddly enough they had just taken these staff on well i can tell you these are not guys you would want at any venue.I have heard that the place had a nick name as a fight club which in most cases would have turned me the other way through being the only late night place open there was little to choose from. When i entered the premises the Door staff were very over bearing and intimidating they were joking about a customer which made me feel slightly un-easy as the night progressed i witnessed these doorstaff repeatedly threatening people and what i can only describe as un-savory behavior towards customers who were new to the premises drinking in street seemed common place whole heatedly Avoid!
