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!

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
