Children Not Welcome!!!

Saturday Afternoon and it's pouring with rain so we go in to the Babbacombe Inn for a drink. We are then told Children are not aloud inside the bar so we had to leave. The weather was awful and the place was empty, there were more obnoxious staff then customers, won't be returning in a hurry.

Visited the Babb Inn for Valentines Night, had a fantastic night, with great entertainment and good company. The entertainment, Hi Life, was amazing and they had everyone dancing, shame the place has to close, or we would have all been dancing till Sunday morning!! Met some fabulous new friends.

Beautifully cooked fresh sea bream served by very friendly staff. The choice of vegetables was OK but a bit disappointing - cauliflower not ideal with fish though the rest was fine

Took a larger group in yesterday unexpectedly, but it was no problem. I can't speak highly enough of this place and its outstanding staff.
