I think the sloop has a great atmosphere for drinks,but having eaten there several times in the hope of having a good meal I have now decided to give it will never happen. Please someone take control .

What a wonderful place to stay! We would thoroughly recommend it. Great views, great food, great service & all in a fabulous location!! The room was light and airy, the bed was very comfortable. Altogether simply couldn't be better. Would thoroughly recommend this venue.

It's got the charm that comes with an inn and the inn's bar is great for both food and drink. The rooms have electric showers but still there seemed to be a time when they ran out of hot water (and our friends found the same). All was fine again for no apparent reason on our final morning. The beds... More

Sloop is in a nice setting by bantham bay. Also dogs are welcome which is great for us. The burgers were really nice although I wish places would learn that most people like their bacon to not look like it's just come out of the packet! My wife's steak was disappointing and mostly fat which for £18 is not great.... More

Arrived here after a 10 mile walk. Staff very friendly and a good selection of drinks, albeit a bit on the expensive side. Its a lovely Inn with nice comfy sofas to sit an relax. We did not eat here as I really thought the food was extremely expensive for pub food. However I enjoyed our drinks and atmosphere and... More

"I'm a local" a lady with a South African accent informed us at the bar just before we had dinner, same charm school as the other "local" who took us to task for being too inquisitive for her liking, whilst looking around "her" village, delivered more with an in-blown twang likely born of Bromsgrove or perhaps Fulham rather than Devon....

. We've just spent a very pleasant few days at the Sloop Inn. It is a lovely old place and the food in the evening was excellent - a few people have said its expensive but coming from Surrey, we didn't find it so and the portions were generous and freshly cooked. The breakfast lacked imagination and having the 9-9.30... More

We arrived before the place was open so were sent away, but we booked a table. On arrival the welcome was OK, but I felt I'd entered a clique - locals took prority clearly. With young children in tow we chose a mixture of dishes, from fthe ubiquitous fish and chips ("very good") to fish pie ("pretty basic and not... More

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
