Staff could not do enough for us. Good beer and even better steak. Not cheap but in budleigh salterton you expect to pay more No question in recommending this pub and food.

This pub has a good selection of traditional pub fayre at reasonable prices. The service is friendly, and seems very popular with the locals.

I have visited this little gem on a few occasions.This time we were a little too late for food however Dan the bar man offered to make us a sandwich,which came with a garnish and was indeed very nice.Dan was full of conversation and we felt that we were welcome.Customer service seems to be a rarity these days...not here!! 10/10...

Very disappointed with the food here. Ordered burgers and was disappointed to find they arrived as a burger in a plain bun. Asked for relish (as there was no filling at all) only to be told there was none. For £30 for 3 burgers was very poor. It' s a nice pub, but don't eat there.

3 of us had sunday lunch here this weekend we each had a different meat - one lamb, one pork and the other beef - the highlight was definately the vegetables served with the meal.

We have been visiting the Salterton Arms for many years with elderly, local parents. The landlord has changed in recent months but sadly the service and food has not improved one iota. I have always found service basic, no welcome or recognition shown despite frequent visits, food bland, at best. Why have crab on your menu when it never appears... More

We arrived cold after a walk on the front with wind howling around on a very stormy evening at 5.15pm. Welcome at the bar was great as was the warmth and olde-worlde feel. Then the owner/manager?? came to tell us the seat in the window was reserved but that we could still sit there but had to be away as... More
