Description: Famous for Fine Food, Service and Hospitality. The Cherub Inn dates from 1380 and still retains many of its original features, including some old ships' timbers, and its original use is thought to have been as a Merchant's House. It is the oldest building in Dartmouth – possibly the oldest "town house" in the South Hams – and is a Grade 2* Listed Building, a category reserved for the most interesting of smaller buildings. Great Food and Drink The Cherub Inn prides itself on being a Cask Ale House and Restaurant and offers an extensive menu, from lunch time light snacks and bar snacks to a la carte meals in our restaurant.

Afraid I must echo some of the other recent reviews of this pub. Great location and history, but typical pub grub of average quality. Nothing to fault but equally nothing to get excited about.

Small restaurant upstairs reached by narrow spiral stairs not easy to use if big and not so steady on your feet like me. No issues with staff helpful and friendly.

Very busy when we arrived, but got served quickly, however no local beers or strong ciders, usual choice that thousands of pubs have. Boring. I said I'd hoped they may have one or two others to choose from, chatty girl apologised and said she's disappointed us. Then asked for Jacket potatoes as on the blackboard, sold out, so she said thats 2 disappointments. I asked what she recommends, and was told crab sandwiches were lovely, so ordered, but didn't expect a tenner each. But they were nice, I admit.
Stayed for an hour with another mass produced beer, pub started to clear, leaving 3 locals dominating bar with loud drunk speech, talking usual ripe stuff that drunks do. We left. But did admire the history. And beware of getting to the toilets upstairs if you've had one over.... After, we asked nice RNLI man if he knew where in Dartmouth to experience decent ales, thats another story.

Visited with friends on recommendation of local resident. Fascinating place - oldest pub/house in Dartmouth - lots of old beams, oak panelling etc. Service is so-so - waitress struggles in busy times - food is variable - whitebait can be served burnt to a crisp and almost inedible - yet steak is cooked almost to perfection. Very difficult to recommend - suspect it may be at its best on a quiet mid-week lunch - rather than a busty Saturday!!
