We came here for a family meal and were greatly surprised and impressed. The service was extremely prompt and the food was fresh and delicious. I cannot fault anything, the staff were friendly and the portions were perfect and you definitely got your moneys worth. Superb.

I need a cold shower In August but the cold setting was not working, it was boiling hot and uncomfortable. The food quality of the breakfast is really good but let's me down by the small portion sizes. The windows are really stiff to open and close. I definitely think some money needs to be invested in updating the rooms.... More

Came here for lunch as my local pal told me it was better than the Village Pub in Thurlestone, I disagree. Friendly bar staff but when we went to our table there was pasta and a bit of rubbish on the floor which didn't get things off to a good start. The food was ok pub grub, my wife complained... More

I stay a lot of hotels as I have been travelling on and off on a sabbatical for the last 12 months and it was enormously refreshing to stay here: food was great, the pub was always busy with a good mix of locals, surfers and some 'down from London's' and the prices were very reasonable indeed. The room was... More

We stayed in room 4 of the Sloop. On first impressions, the room appeared to be lovely and bright. However - stained cushions, stained bed linen, broken and tatty blinds with black mould spores.... The towel dryer / radiator in the en-suite had clearly seen better days and was covered in rust, and there were hairs in the plug-hole of... More

Food was ok, huge bits of cod with more bones than would normally be expected. Owner surly, other staff polite and obvs working hard. Not really clean as you would like. Note on the menu in capitals 'IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK FOR INGREDIENTS YOU MAY BE ALLERGIC TO' blah blah, about sums up the approach the owner takes.... More

We (4 adults + 2 children) visited this pub for lunch three times last week on our way to the beach, and each time the food was good and the staff were friendly and welcoming. Also, the 5 minute walk to the beach is one of the most scenic 5 minute walks i have ever taken.

Bantham is my favourite place and The Sloop Inn is situated just as you drive down to the beach. The food is really excellent. I was there this year with 4 friends and we all had the Sunday lunch of rare beef. Not a thing left on any ones plate. Excellent. On our second visit we had the fish pie.... More

On a sunny Sunday we sneaked off the beach early (noon) and found plenty of space in the pub where we could dine quietly, as we where accompanied by our 5 month old grandson. I had a seafood platter, whilst my wife and daughters ate fish and chips, all very good quality with good attentive service.
