The prices at TBI are restaurant prices but food most definitely is not restaurant quality. I had a steak and my wife had the pork and it was very poor for the price.

We had dinner on one night whilst staying at Babbacombe Guest House and had a really nice meal. The atmosphere was inviting, drinks were cold and what was served was really good pub food.

A comfortable place, inside and out. All the staff are very friendly and hard working. We became friendly with Lee who is a total asset to this establishment. Air conditioning this year was an absolute godsend. Love the place.

We came to Babbacombe for the day whilst on holiday in Devon.

The setting was lovely overlooking the seafront and the pub/restaurant has a nice outside area to eat.... More

A busy night in the restaurant but our meals for party of eight were served as quickly as possible. I can recommend the Spaghetti Bolognese which was very tasty and good value.

We have recently been away on holiday. Whilst in Devon we visited this pub for dinner. On arrival we were told that the kitchen was closing very soon and we were told if you want food order now. The bar staff didn't mention any specials that were on offer, and seemed uninterested. We put it down to the fact it... More

Excellent position, great sizzlers on the menu. Great quiz on Mondays and they were very welcoming to outsiders.
