Found this amazing pub set by the river. Amazing food. Very friendly and great service. Ideal scenery as we sat outside right by the river. Get there early for lunch as its very popular. Would definitely return again.

Visited with my boyfriend when we stayed here for a weekend last year. The food was about average. We both had burgers and they were okay but nothing noteworthy about them. I wouldn't hurry back but at the same time if I was hungry then I wouldn't hesitate on dropping by if I was nearby. When we visited there was... More

We stayed here for a night on the May Bank Holiday weekend. Double room was £110 which I thought was a bit steep even for Totnes but the room was clean, well decorated and with a fine view over Vere Island and the River Dart. Great shower as well! Only annoyance was the lack of feather pillows! Not everyone is... More

Call in here periodically for a beer or meal with friends, have stayed too. Most recent visits have shown a deterioration in the standards set by the management - food average, bar staff inattentive and cleanliness in the toilets poor (no toilet paper in the ladies loos and left unclean). Management could do with sharpening up their act.

I live in Totnes and frequently take visitors to 'The Steam Packet' It is a lovely place to sit and drink/eat and, previously, the food has also been very good. However, on this occasion I had crab sandwiches, my partner, a hamburger and one of my friends, a prawn sandwich. The bread in all the sandwiches was so thickly cut... More

Just finished a pretty disastrous lunch here. I had high hopes after booking 4 weeks ago and being promised a table overlooking the river. When we arrived we were shown into a rear table which was chilly and we were told we had to be moved to accommodate a large party!!! So much for customer service you will get none... More

It's been a couple of years since I last stayed here, and have to stay, it is still the best places to stay in Totnes. Rooms recently refurbished are bright, clean and well appointed. The staff as always are very pleasant friendly and professional. Lovely atmosphere in the bar, and the location is wonderful. Highly recommended

On the day of visit(Friday) I telephoned to say I would not be arriving until after 10pm. No problem they said. When I arrived they did not have a room for the Friday night only the Saturday. Not very... More

Smashing spot on the quayside overlooking the River Dart, this is a pub with rooms. Loved the bar area with stone walls, wooden flooring, log fire and leather sofa. Cosy and comfortable with a relaxed ambience. Good place to chill after bracing South Devon walks or sight-seeing. Top marks also for the dining areas - one traditional with dark wooden... More
