A very professionally run place, located right by the beach. Well appointed bar and restaurant serving top quality fresh food in generous portions. Service is by a young team of efficient and charming staff who keep the place spick and span. An altogether excellent experience. Can't wait to go back.

Lovely seafood, although I could have eaten anything on the menu. The mussels were the best we've ever had. Terrific views of Startpoint lighthouse which is 100% worth a walk. What a lovely place!

Four long time friends had an absolutely brilliant evening. The food was brilliant, full of flavour and well presented. We got talking to the chef Scott Simon and it was refreshing to talk to a young man who was both enthusiastic and passionate about what he did. Would highly recommend beating here ....you would be foolish not too.

We were viewing houses in the area and decided to pop in on chance for a meal. What a lovely meal, we both had the fish and chips with melt in your mouth fish. The service was fast and efficient especially as we were just between viewings. The weather was terrible but like the atmosphere the pub was warm and... More

Once again, a faultless evening at this great pub. We were a group of 10 and they accommodated us professionally and efficiently. All staff were most friendly and charming. The signature dish of seafood linguine has to be top of my list but everyone equally enjoyed all of their chosen meals. I really like the way that there are tables... More

Came to Beesands for a family holiday and after a 3 hour car journey we didn't really fancy cooking anything, so a few doors up from our holiday cottage we spotted the Cricket Inn. From start to finish the service was excellent. We had booked a table at 6pm and luckily we did because the building quickly filled up! After... More

Our first (and I doubt not the last) trip to glorious Beesands. We frequented the inn a number of times during our weeks holiday for drinks, always served by happy, informative staff. Even when they were very busy, the barmen never looked stressed or short of a cheery word or two. So, decided to book for dinner on Tuesday 11th... More

Great location and potential but such a shame the food, drink and service is so bad. The beer is like brown sparkling water; the food so unloved and it shows. Indifferent service and the sad thing is that they know it but don't care as it's so busy. A real let down.

Thanks for your review I am sure the owners of St Austell and Ottery Brewery who supply us with award winning beers would love your comments, we employ 6 chefs of which 2 are possibly of the highest calibre of any chefs in the area which is said with no disrespect to any other chefs or establishment locally, you are...
