There are two rooms above this pub which have amazing views over Babbacombe Downs to the sea beyond. We stayed in The Schooner room which was very large & extremely clean. The decor of the room was very good & it even had a small fridge, microwave, crockery etc. The pub doesn't do breakfast but there are lots of little... More

Booked the Buccanear for a short break for our 1st wedding anniversary and I'm so glad we did. We stayed in the sloop room which was spacious, clean and had a fantastic enclosed balcony with a table an chairs looking out to a gorgeous view of the sea, even though downstairs for dining was very busy they ensured we had...

My husband and I stayed here last month and had a fabulous visit to beautiful babbacombe. The staff greeted us with smiles and felt welcome from that first contact. Even a busy bar and many dinning, we were well looked after in a friendly atmosphere. The food was really tasty and the dinning area felt quite cosy in the evening.... More

We stayed in The Sloop for two nights. Very nice and comfortable with spacious bathroom, room and a bonus indoor balcony to observe the superb sea view. They don't serve breakfast or have wi-fi, however this is reflected in the price which we found more than reasonable, for a very nice cooked breakfast, we went to Angels located next door... More

We cannot recommend this wonderful place enough. The owners, Steve and Marion, and their staff were very friendly, and couldn't do enough to help. The room is light, airy, spacious and with a really spectacular view over the bay, which we enjoyed every morning while eating breakfast. The food, when we ate in the pub, was very good, and the...

so we found the Buccaneer after searching for the bank holiday weekend as a last minute decision to visit Torquay and the B&B we were looking to stay at was fully booked, and we thought that the price for the rooms looked too good to be true, The experience did not disappoint. Upon arriving in Babbacombe we found the carpark... More

We where do I start, we only found out about this fantastic little place by accident, as I was looking at all the B&B`s on Babbacomb Downs, which is where we had chosen to stay, however, they were all booked up so I carried on looking on google map and just noticed the pub which I found very quaint and...

We stayed two nights in The Sloop room. Big comfortable bed spotlessly clean with beautiful views across the bay. The food in the pub was 1st class and hosts Steve and Marion were very welcoming.There's a lovely atmosphere in The Buccaneer and will be visiting again.

My husband and I stayed at The Buccaneer Inn for six nights as a last minute booking and we loved everything about it! We booked the spacious, beautifully decorated Sloop room which boasts stunning panoramic views over Lyme Bay from the seating area. The double bed was comfortable, there is a good sized en-suite shower room, also in the room... More
