“Just for locals”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Have been going to Shalden for years,love it,what a shame they don't like us (Emmets and grockles) they need us more than we need them.
Went to the garden of the Ferry boat inn,we had crab sandwiches which I have to say we're very nice but the whole lunch was spoiled by locals unleashed dogs sniffing around us and cocking there leg over our table every few minutes,what surprised us most was the 'so what' attitude of the manageress who said that she preferred dogs to holiday makers children,really? Would you prefer us to spend our money elsewhere?we did'nt have children with us but we're treated with contempt
anyway, careful what you wish for Ferry boat

“Another upstairs river view for dinner in Shaldon”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Good pub food, fair choice with specials too, waiter service, real ale on tap downstairs. Window views over the Teign, and outdoor seating if the weather's right.

“Noisy”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The restaurant seemed to think it was OK to allow a boisterous, loud group to be sat next to smaller parties. Spoilt the evening. Food was OK - wine selection really poor - a £3 bottle marked up to £15. Seemed new to the game

“Very good food!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

The pub's garden is set across the road from the pub next to the beach. It was a lovely sunny day and the garden was packed with locals and holidaymakers!

We had fish and chips and they were very tasty and very good value for money.

This place is well worth a visit and not far from the Ferry over to Teignmouth!!!!!

“Average food and awful service”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

A group of us visited for lunch today and will certainly not be returning. We ordered our food and started receiving some of the order 50 mins later. After complaining and still waiting for food 1h15 later we were acused of not ordering all of our meals and trying a fast one. A quick show of our receipts stopped this discussion and we were told our remaining meal would about another 15-20 mins. We asked for a refund instead.
Appalling service with no apologies and no customer service..... Avoid!
