This is a friendly traditional English pub. We ate here three times last week, and each time we enjoyed the meals. Pizza, Steak Pie & Scallops where my three choices. Imagine it would be cozy in the winter months with the log fire on.

We ate lunch at the Fortescue Inn on 9/21/18. Located in the coastal town of Salcombe, this pub offers great brew and pub grub. Doesn’t overlook the harbor but provides a warm venue for enjoying a good time with friends.
