Four of us had dinner here on a rainy Saturday evening and we all very much enjoyed our (different) dishes. The food was tasty, the portion sizes just right, the service friendly and the décor/atmosphere cheery. We'll be back when next in Salcombe!

Doesn't look a great deal from the outside, but inside you'll find a warm welcome and some very good food. This is a popular place with those that have tried it, so don't pass it by. Good value all round.

We ate here on the last evening of our holiday, and really enjoyed our meal. The food was delicious, well presented and good-sized portions. The location is cozy and maybe not so well suited for very large parties, but couples or groups of 4 or...More
