We had a lovely evening here at The Victoria Inn. The food was really good, arrived in record time. I have to say I have never received a meal so quickly after ordering it. The service was brilliant. Our waitress was very chatty and friendly. I would recommend this establishment to others visiting the area.

Visited for lunch. Staff are friendly and welcoming. My wife had the ravioli while I had the seafood board. Both dishes were fantastic. Will come again on our next visit to Salcombe

My partner and I decided to have Sunday lunch at the Victoria today - what a good decision! Firstly location, in the middle of very pretty Salcombe with water views the only down side is parking, there is a public car park across the road but it's small and, even out of season, busy. Immediately we arrived in the bar... More

I have moaned about £21 for the Vic's sirloins before but my was pretty tasteless and the chips were certainly frozen rather than fresh - they were equally tasteless. Perhaps I will learn and have something different as we still like going to the Vic. The overall bill including some fairly indifferent wine was £71 quid. I was amazed to... More

Dear Freddog108 I really can't understand why when you visited us in March this year and gave us an equally poor review that you have come back and ordered exactly the same meal only to say how awful it was all over again? I don't understand why anyone in their right mind would do such a thing??? But I say... More

The whole team were fab when a group of 27 plus toddler had lunch with you last Saturday. One of your staff was particularly helpful to my niece who was on her own with her toddler before the rest of us arrived. They sat her down, brought her a drink and a selection of toys for Esmai. Brilliant customer service... More

My wife, daughter and I booked for a Sunday lunch back on the 20th November. Booking a must as its so popular. The food once again was terrific and melted in your mouth. It's not cheap, but it's worth every mouth full. I would highly recommend it, but you must book in advance. I would rate this Pub and food... More

We come here at the weekend. What a lovely welcoming pub. We all had the steak which was cooked to perfection. Well worth the money. We all had sticky toffee pudding for dessert with clotted cream. AMAZING! If you are in Salcombe this pub is a must!

It has this year (2014) been awarded the Taste of the West Gold Award - awarded for locality of produce used, ambiance and high standards of service. We are the only pub in the South Hams to hold this prestigious award. National finalists In Licensee of the Year, finalists in Devon Life Family Friendly Dining Establishment as well as previous Fish & Chip award finalists.

We welcome children with their own menu selection of home cooked food and dogs with their own Al a Bark menu!

Bookings to eat with us are advised as we get extremely busy and hate to disappoint customers.
