Had room with a river view, although small nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. A little noise from outside terrace if going to bed early as sash windows not double glazed. Food excellent but mostly fish and breakfast very good but service a bit slow . All staff friendly and efficient. Good location only 5 minutes walk from town centre. Would... More

My family and I had a wonderful visit to The Steam Packet. I was impressed by their menu and even more so by the food. the service was friendly and the view of the river was charming. A lovely environment to eat simply fantastic food. I'll definitely visit again.

We found the Steam Packet by chance whilst travelling around Devon. Having stayed in quite a few hotels/inns, it certainly stood out from the crowd. The room was beautifully appointed and the bathroom was glorious! yes, there was some building going on outside, but it did not impact on us at all. the whole place was spotlessly clean and stylish...

We booked a 3 night stay as a quiet Devon break following our busy cruise. On arrival were quickly shown to our room, room no.4 of 4. Although not the biggest room it looked very comfortable and had a very nice bathroom. That was until we looked out of the windows. During our stay we had breakfast everyday and had... More

Booked a table for the conservatory, was told the table was still being occupied by a large party and we had to sit else where!! Very disappointed as we brought friends to sit to look over the river. We could have been anywhere!! Ordered our meals and they had ran out of many of them!! When two of the meals... More

We ate here. One veggy, one not. As usual for many restaurants there was a veggy option but why is there ALWAYS goats cheese on the menu? Not everyone likes it, and anyway it gets really boring eating out even if you do! So 4 out of 5 - ditch the goats cheese for something more interesting.

Just a little out of the way and set by the River Dart in Totnes this immaculate rustic establishment serves outstanding cuisine and fine beers. Riverside seating and low ceiling bar, it's definately worth seeking out if you're feeling flush.

My wife and I have just returned home after our fourth holiday at this venue where the high standards we previously enjoyed are being well maintained by the present manager Richard and his assistants Callum and David very ably supported by the entire staff. At the risk of being accused of being "picky" I would suggest that each of the... More

The food is a little on the pretty food side, with 'accountant chips', if you get my drift, but the standard of cooking is good. It is not cheap, but location and quality are good, so that does not matter. The staff were pleasant and friendly, possibly slightly overly so, so the pub has a relaxed and comfortable feel. I...

Friendly helpful staff in a very pleasant environment. We didn't have a main meal as had eaten earlier that day but the chocolate brownie proved irresistible and was to absolutely die for! Portion size is very generous but definitely not for sharing!
