My family all love the Victoria Inn, the beer lovers think that it does a great pint. The Children like playing in the garden, and we all very much enjoyed our meals there. The only let down is that the chips are of the frozen variety which is very disappointing in an establishment that prides it's self on its food.... More

Great family pub in the middle of Salcombe. Ideal place to take the kids for a break from water/shops. Good play area, lots of things for kids, well thought out. Food is good, wide choice of beer/wine/cocktails and great service. Is also really good value for money.

May Bank Holiday evening - the place was heaving and yet everything seemed to be working smoothly. They have a well thought out menu, enough variety, some tasty specials and all at a good price point. Nice decor, four real ales, friendly, helpful service - even a menu especially for dogs.
