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

Went to Totnes for a day trip and decided on The Steam Packet Inn for lunch on the off chance - we had not looked this one up before we visited. We were not disappointed - lovely welcoming pub with a separate restaurant area if you prefer not eating in the pub section. Was too cold on the day we... More

Persist in your walk to this pub you will not be disappointed. Lovely helpful staff. Quick home cooked food and good range of beers. Accommodated children and our dog and best of all a bit away from the crowds on the Main Street. Great location on the river so we will be back in the summer

Stayed here for pre-Xmas break for 3 nights. Excellent room, lots of care and attention taken on the décor. The open fire in the bar is lit from morning to night, with newspapers to read. Good choice of beers/drinks and friendly efficient staff. We particularly enjoyed Richards customer service being as he was on shift during our stay. Excellent facilities:... More

Overall it felt very luxurious. The tea, coffee and biscuit selection in the room was good and I particularly liked the little thermos flask with fresh milk - cute!... More

We have visited this pub many times this year and sat outside to enjoy the very pleasant views overlooking the river. They serve a decent real ale too which was lovely. We have remarked to each other on previous visits that the squid which was being served looked lovely, wide, light crispy batter and the portion looked good size too.... More
