We have just come back from our first holiday with our dogs and decided to visit here based on previous reviews. Upon arrival it was slightly busy but a gentleman from behind the bar immediately came to help us find... More

If you want just a drink or a meal or both in a relaxed friendly atmosphere then the Buccaneer is the place to go. You will get a genuine welcome from the friendly and efficient staff. Home cooked food and a fantastic view of Babbacombe bay. Theres a Pool table and sport on TV. Something for everyone

A friend came down for a weekend break so we took him for Sunday lunch at The Buccaneer Inn. We waited for the food a very short while and it was worth waiting for as it was brought to us steaming hot and tasted great! We ordered two vegetarian roasts and a lamb shank roast. The only thing I would... More

Went on a national holiday to Torquay.We stayed at a hotel in Babbacombe where the food was not good.We decided to look for somewhere else to eat on a night and found the Buccaneer.Excellent friendly staff and the food is top class and value for money.If it was on television it would get a "ten from Len"😁👍🏻🥂

A great pub with great food. Very dog friendly and the staff were very friendly. No music blasting out so you can hear yourself talk! I enjoyed the Hot & Fiery Buc Burger and at £8.95 - great value. Definitely worth a visit.
