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

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

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

Stayed at the Steam Packet Inn for just the one night. Very well appointed rooms which have been beautifully refurbished. The Breakfast was superb. All this coupled with the very friendly staff made it and excellent experience. Highly recommended
