Good restaurant serving very good food

Visited over Easter and though it was very busy, the service and attention could not be faulted. The food was very nice, different presentations of standard foods and very tasty.

Visited over Easter and though it was very busy, the service and attention could not be faulted. The food was very nice, different presentations of standard foods and very tasty. My dietary allergies were catered for without any queries and my meal choices were cooked for me personally. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent food - fresh fish caught daily - burgers are delicious- the pub is right on the beach and has stunning views. Gets very busy when the weather is great, so be prepared to wait - it's so worth it.

We stumbled on The Cricket Inn while walking the South West Coast Path and what a find! Everything here is perfection - the staff, the decor, the food, the rooms. Absolute perfection. The presentation of the food was an art - but the taste lived up to it. I cannot recommend The Cricket Inn too highly.

Another week in Beesands working our way through the menu, pretty well every dish we had was excellent. The prices aren't cheap but you pay for quality food, served in a lovely restaurant, excellent service and cheery staff. I like how the pub has the nice restaurant, a child/dog friendly area and a drinks only section. Highlight of the week... More

We were staying near by at Cotmore Farm for a short break and guest book entries all recommended the Cricket Inn, so would be rude not to pay a visit. The recommendations were spot on, lovely pub, great decor, fab views. The food was very good with a nice choice for the whole family, kids especially happy as meals came... More

Once again another amazing meal at the Cricket Inn. Great atmosphere. Food outstanding my son had the seafood pancake which he described as a one off excellent dish.

We have not visited this charming coastal pub for a number of years and were really surprised to see how much it has grown. It now has a fantastic restaurant and everywhere is very well decorated, clean and comfortable. We were made to feel at ease and the service was impeccable.

A lovely meal in a smart, clean pub by the sea. Stunning view out of the restaurant window of the waves rolling in. Friendly and attentive staff. Good value for money.
