Great restaurant in a great setting.

We had a lovely meal on the last night of the holiday. The beer was expertly kept. The scallops and cuttlefish were really good. The cracked crab was an experience! The turbot was well cooked and very tasty and we finished the meal with lovely desserts. Would definitely go back.

Lovely accommodation clean and decorated in a nautical theme really good shower. The staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough to help. The breakfast was amazing and the evening restaurant served the most amazing food. Lots of delicious fresh fish, lobster, scallops and crab.

We were booked in for Sunday lunch but were early. The pub was very accommodating however and we were shown to our table. My partner had the Roast Beef dinner and I had the Roast Loin of Pork. Both were cooked to perfection with big crispy yorkshires, roast potatoes and an excellent side dish of veg (at least four types)... More

The room was well appointed and clean with lovely views over the ocean. The staff were very helpful and friendly and provided a cheerful service.

We have just spent a weekend here for my father-in-law's 80th birthday, and I don't think we could have picked a better venue. The whole place had a really friendly vibe, from the moment we arrived, and the rooms are lovely. Ours had a sea view, and a window seat - a perfect combination. It was decorated with a nautical...

We had a family dinner in the restaurant and several of us had the best fresh cracked crab we have ever had. I would say it was better than many a lobster and would highly recommend a visit

A lovely pub beautifully decorated and furnished in a fantastic spot. We had a very enjoyable lunch with locally caught fish, we had cod which was massive but not covered in heavy batter, the seafood pancakes had such a tasty collection of different fish. Halibut cooked in white wine with garlic mash and spinich was also a great hit. We... More

Visited 8 times in the last 3 weeks, without exception all the meals were excellent, freshly prepared and good value for money.

Great tasty food but not the best value for money. Veg is a separate dish on some of the menu items, not sure what all the letters mean on the menu (a bit confusing) ,bread was a bit sparse. Not a bad experience but I'm not sure I'd rush back!!

We always eat at the Cricket Inn when staying in the South Hams, and usually stop off for a pint of Otter Bitter mid-walk too. Our most recent visit was typical of the quality food we've come to expect. The menu is largely local fish dishes as you'd expect from a pub on the sea front. The staff are friendly... More
