Great Pub Great Food

Popped in on spec on a Monday evening around 6pm. A little breezy to sit out on the large patio which has views over the downs and sea, so we settled inside. Two choices; restaurant with waiter service or bar with self ordering. We chose the bar, which is light and airy and clean. The menu is pub... read more

Went to pre theatre dinner few weeks ago which was awful....Had a friend over from USA so thought would take her for a sizzling steak,mine was ok but hers was grizzle and unedable ...Had a plateful of dry unappetising chips which were left....Come on Babbacombe Inn,have had some great meals over the years,what's happening?

So lucky to have been taken here twice this week with the usual high standards of food and service. Prompt and friendly service with a great bunch of front of house staff and good value for money

Stopped in for a drink on 19/07 around lunchtime, The bar staff were really polite and served you really quick. I was served by a tall man on the bar working with two girls I can’t remember his name but really good customer service will defiantly be back. thumbs up

Fantastic opportunity to create an amazing restaurant with first class food, sadly lacking in the menu choices and execution of it. Have to say that the young waiters and waitresses were a credit to this place as was the Manager.( note to owners! There are too many places serving below average food for pretentious prices, please upgrade and make this... More

The sizzling dishes are cheap and really well worth it. The staff were great and at hand all the time, the inside was very... More

We went in on a Saturday night and although busy we were able to find a table, we ordered 2 sizzler steaks which we thought good value for £7.95 each. We were told the food would take about 45 mins which was fine, but it was ready before that. The food if I am honest was a bit bland and... More

Always been pretty happy with food served here - it's standard pub grub but it's ok - however having booked a pre-theatre time did expect to get served in good time for the show - waited well over an hour to be served which would have been fine had it been Cordon Bleu but this was pretty standard food and...
