I keep coming back. So very friendly, warm and welcoming, especially on a cold and frosty night. A real feel of Christmas. The food is consistently good and great value for money; the staff are superb and Tim and Liz deserve several of those huge stars hanging over the harbour tonight.

Best pub in Salcombe for food by far. Very welcoming with excellent service. Food is home cooked and offered at a very reasonable price. If you are coming to Salcombe in the winter and want to go out we don't think it can be beaten. We live here and have tried them all!

Went with friends, our 18 month old daughter and a dog for Sunday lunch. Nothing was too much trouble from high chairs, toys, finding somewhere to put the pram. Staff served us really quickly, and asked if we needed a separate plate of food for our daughter. Very thoughtful. Nice food and decor. Don't think there was baby changing but... More

We went in after a long, very wet walk. The fire was roaring and the pub was welcoming .We left a lot later than we thought we would.
