Paid two visits in a day as the beer was so good and the outside area was a wonderful sun-trap. Seemed to do a good trade in food and very busy.

We have visited many times during our holidays to Salcombe, sadly the menu has been the same for many years and feels tired and lazy. The service was appalling, I would recommend you go the the Victoria inn instead.
