Very pleasant.

As mentioned by numerous others, this restaurant is located on the side of the Estuary and given warm weather, a great place to eat outside on the decking and admire the view. Front of house was much improved and staff/service generally very good. Everyone enjoyed their meal, decent... read more

We stumbled upon this place one lunchtime and although it doesn't look much from the road we were so glad that we ventured downstairs. We hoped to eat outside that evening but the weather was a little unpredictable, the lady we saw could not have been more helpful, suggesting drinks on the terrace and offering us a choice of tables....

I tried to book this restaurant for a romantic meal for 2. On their website it said "Contact us by phone or email", as I was at work and it was early I emailed. 5hrs later I had had no confirmation, so I returned to the website to get the telephone number to discover the wording had changed to "Bookings...

We chose Dick and Wills for dinner on our last night as we'd previously been for drinks and loved the relaxed atmosphere and views. The service was very attentive, Georgie was our waitress and was excellent. We had a table out on the decking right at the front overlooking the bay which was perfect, romantic and we were very lucky... More

This place was recommended to us by locals and after checking out the menus around Salcombe we are very glad that we chose to come here for our one child-free night of the holiday. Shame we couldn't sit outside due to rain but we still got a decent view and the atmosphere inside was buzzing yet we were made to... More

Great location, great food and good service. Go for a table on the terrace...if possible. Not cheap but worth it!

We booked in advance for one of our favourite eateries in Salcombe. Unfortunately do to the rain, we had to sit indoors. We were given a table near the bar area, which was OK when we arrived. The food was excellent, in fact possibly better than I remember from previous years. I had the Weeping Tiger, followed by a really... More

We dropped in here for a coffee at just after 11am and also took a look at the menu for lunch. Seeing two tables already reserved we decided to book for lunch at 1230 outside. Best table is on the right at the front. Great views over Salcombe Harbour. Once we placed our order for the food we waited for... More

Went here whilst staying in the area for a birthday celebration. Starters gorgeous, but skimpy for the price. Mains were the opposite, generous but poorly seasoned. Paella over faced by huge bass fillet, strange contrast to the starter, and very small puds. Wine expensive. Wonderful setting and good service, but gave the impression of business rather than pleasure.

Round tables for 4 are a bit small, but the food was delicious, good wine selection (house wines are fine choices as well). Bathrooms are clean. Location is amazing. Heaters on the outdoor patio are also a good touch.
