Good food and service

good selection and very attentive staff. It is obviously popular with locals and visitors alike and does good trade at lunchtime with walkers who are passing.

Wonderful food, The cracked crab, fish pie and fish and chips are superb. Beautiful surroundings and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The reliable wi-fi is an added bonus! The best seafood restaurant we've ever visited.

After travelling up what can only be described as one one the narrowest roads in the uk, we got to this pub. The food was very good, the staff were helpful and the restaurant looked very spacious, bright and clean. Well worth the dodgy road for the end result.

This gastro pub serves excellent fish dishes. The fish pie or the pancake are very tasty and the scallops are a real treat. The crab sandwiches are great at lunchtime. For such an isolated place this is very popular and we are regular visitors. Well worth the trip. Can be a bit noisy at the bar end!

My husband and I visited The Cricket Inn for Sunday lunch whilst staying in the area. The food came highly recommended by my parents and it didn't disappoint. Our meal was delicious, especially the scallop starter! I was particularly impressed by the helpful allergy advice information on the menu as I suffer from a gluten intolerance.

We had a starter...which was delicious....but the main meal was enormous. Super friendly staff. Upmarket interiors, inexpensive and varied wine list, flavoursome food. We really love this place, it's perfect.

Very friendly , and brilliant food, really good information about the food contents and a lovely menu. I have never seen Yorkshire puddings like theirs! Not too expensive, large portions, beautifully served and everything really fresh. I fully recommend you try this place. Dog friendly too.

If you are adventurous enough to do some of the walks in and around Slapton Sands, Hallsands and Beesands, you have no doubt come across The Cricket Inn, a lovely bar and restaurant opposite the sea and sea wall.
