Our second visit. The food is a good standard, but the kids meals for £5.50 each, when the sausage and chips only had one sausage (and it wasn't big) and then they charge extra for beans or peas - and this isn't a kids deal including ice cream or anything - this was extortionate. I don't mind paying £5.50, IF... More

We had two rooms for 3 days and were OK for what I paid, but the carpets in room 2 are not nice and cleaning with a little more effort would go a long way. See pictures and make up your own mind if I have been honest in my description. They don't make up the room if you don't... More

Visited the Sloop Inn for a lunchtime snack. Two of us had the goujons as a lite bite and I had the cheese and pickle sandwich. Firstly the portion sizes were huge. But most importantly the quality was excellent. Tasted the local Sloop beer which was light to the taste but excellent for a lunchtime. Staff were very welcoming and... More

We didn't stay, just ate lunch on a very wet Sunday. Staff in the pub were friendly and the food was traditional and excellent. Great if you like meat and two veg and large custard desserts like sticky toffee. Family friendly menu and seating. Good for worn out walkers also dog friendly and take card.

I really want to like the Sloop Inn as all the staff were friendly and helpful but I really felt that it could have done with a good slap of paint (including removal of old paint, a rub down and then quite a bit of filler) and more of a reduction for very off peak times such as January. I... More

We had lunch here today. Both our starters had to go back - the chicken liver pate was crumbly which I presume meant it wasn't that fresh and the gravlax was so salty and dry it was inedible. On top of that that the plates and cutlery were dirty for both the starters and main dishes. Having said all this... More

We booked a table for the family for a Sunday lunch in late November. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Our food was very good - best prime roast beef served wonderfully pink, and delicious steak and ale pie. 'Proper' filling food all reasonably priced! The decor in the lower part of the restaurant area (the ship's cabin?) was... More

First impressions on a dismal weather day were excellent - nice warm bar area, friendly staff, good smells. We spotted a nice cosy, unoccupied table and started to make our way over. Then came the announcement - "I'm afraid your kids can't eat in this area". My children are 16 and 11. We were pointed at a much less welcoming,... More

I stayed here for five nights in October 2014 and it was a very good stay. The room was (reasonably) clean and had a good view over the River Avon and down towards the beach. Breakfast was adequate if a little sparse and the staff were efficient and friendly. The bar meals each evening were outstanding and it was a... More

We had lunch here only in September. Busy pub serving excellent food. Loved the location, food, service etc however just one little down side is the outside "beer garden" is quite small and no view of the wonderful countryside surrounding the pub. However don't let that put you off! A few 100 yards from the pub is a stunning beach... More
