Wow! We had heard the food was good here when we told friends we were staying at the Inn for a few nights. We were not disappointed! The Chef has an exceptional reputation, which we can certainly vouch for. Plenty of seafood on the menu for those that like to eat fish, and other tastes equally cared for;- and all... More

My wife ordered the almost world famous seafood pancake and was very pleased with it, I had the roast beef and all the trimmings. The roast potatoes and parsnips were perfect. The beef was tender, but not over generous. The side plate of four different vegetables must have been meant for two. Altogether an excellent Sunday lunch, we will go... More

On a cliff walk in Devon in the school holidays we unexpectedly stumbled upon this wonderful country pub with fantastic views of the bay, we were found a table by very helpful bar staff, despite not having a booking (would recommend). We enjoyed a fabulous meal, in a friendly comfortable atmosphere. All meals were delicious and highly recommended by both... More

Thank you so much I remember you all back in the October half term it was not a problem, being on a diet and not drinking made it possible so as you put in your review that people need to book a taxi in advance, many thanks again hopefully we will see you this year. More

Service was speedy, personal and polite. Food was served after only a short wait and was absolutely delicious. Steak was cooked to perfection and the burger was incredible as was the dessert!! Will definitely be eating here again.

Quality normally very good but variable. I have mostly had excellent food there but on other occasions the food and/or service has been disappointing.

Thank you for your review 'Claire 241' personally I did not understand it as it complimented the Cricket in one sentence and criticised in the next. I have notice that your food miles travelled is 24 miles once to us and once the previous day to the other establishment in the village which with every detail you could describe exactly... More

A very nice restaurant pub with good facilities, parking is available directly outside and the beach is a few meters away. The menu is primarily sea food and I can certainly recommend the sea food pancake and the fish & chips. The local crab and lobster are also fantastic.

Thank you so much for your review as I say to people if you cannot get fresh Crab or Lobster at the Cricket there is a problem, straight from the sea across the beach into our kitchen the only way to eat, many thanks again More

The service tends to be slow - we had to wait about 50 minutes for our starters. The wait is worth while because the food is very good. The Seafood Pancake is delicious and the fish and chips very generous with lovely crisp batter, good chips and real mushy peas.

This gastro pub has developed a very good reputation over the last few years. The food is always of high quality and well presented. The fish dishes are the speciality as you would expect in this location with the fish pie, scallops and fish pancake excelling. Great for lunch or dinner.. Beer not bad either with local Otter beers.

Thanks for your review the boys down at the Otter brewery will appreciate that people appreciate the beer as much as the food thanks again More

This pub was hard to find, but worth the effort. The service was excellent and the food was good. The menu was limited, but everyone in our party enjoyed their meal.

Many thanks for your review as the season draws to a close for the Cricket I am afraid that the menu gets smaller to ensure that what we serve is fresh, but thanks for your review again. More

First a potted history: I first went to Beesands when I was seven in 1965,and continued to holiday there for another 8 years. The Cricket Inn back then was a joy to visit whilst enjoying a packet of crisps and a bottle of pop in the porch with my best friend Ann Lewis. Beesands has always been and still is... More
