Quirky pub

We searched out the Cherub in as a good traditional pub, it is small, but quirky and very friendly, but like so many places in Dartmouth, we decided not to eat here, it didn't give you confidence that the food would be anything other than average, but great for a quick drink. There appears to be a... read more

My husband and I wanted to have lunch at the Cherub due to its history and charm. The food board from the outside seemed to suggest a fresh and generous menu, but what was on offer on the inside was a bit of a let down - a menu pretty much entirely of stodge. What is more, they seemed to... More

Visited on a Friday evening and had a brilliant time, the bar is cosy and quaint with a friendly bar maid and a great range of beers and wines for all of us. We dined in the bar as the restaurant was full, and the food didn't dissapoint, very fresh fish and perfectly cooked steaks, will definitely return

The building is gorgeous, historic and interesting. The exterior signs and flowers are appealing and drew us in. The ales seem like a strong point (there are several guest ales) and my husband enjoyed his pint. Restaurant however was disappointing. We headed for an early dinner with our young child at around 6pm. The restaurant needs some TLC, with dark... More

We visited Dartmouth on Sunday and were recomended The Cherub by a friend. We were not disappointed.A lovely cosy and well appointed pub just off main street with downstairs seating as well as a dining room upstairs. We had some nice ale and both had the Cod and Choritzo fishcakes with chips and salad. Extremely nice I have to say!... More

One of our party is not overly keen on seafood so we did struggle to find something to eat. It was difficult to see what the specials were without looking like you were staring at customers on the other side of the room. Maybe a sheet of specials on each table would help this, also at our age, we found... More

We visited the cherub inn with our two year old. Staff were very friendly although no high chairs ( it des tell you that on the sign outside). We brought our booster seat which worked well although you can't tuck the chair under the table. Beer was good, food was very poor except for the chips. Overall very disappointing.

Thank you for your review, I recall your visit due the the booster seat, Sorry to hear your visit wasn't up to our expectations however I only wish you had said something at the time and it could have been rectified, instead of keeping quiet and then just posting a poor review here, so that nothing could be done about...
