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!

Visited the Steam Packet on a Wednesday for lunch. Nice warm welcome, prompt service and friendly staff. We ordered at the at the bar and had a table outside by the river. Lovely setting. Food was delivered quickly, better fresh and was of good quality, reasonably priced too. Would certainly return and recommend, thank you.

I haven't been to the steam packet for a while and I was pleasantly surprised they redid the conservatory up. It's looks wonderful. We didn't want to overeat as we had some things planned for the evening so we ended up ordering some sandwiches and an extra portion of onion rings. The sandwiches were humongous and the bread was lovely... More

Lovely little family birthday lunch, nice location, food very good and a reasonable choice on the menu for a Sunday lunchtime. Service was prompt and friendly, all in all pretty good all round. Would definitely visit again when next in the area.

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
