“Piratey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We visited this pub, having previously spending the morning at Greenway. We took the little ferry over which costs £2 and found ourselves in this very tiny pub. It is a delight,full of all kinds of character and the food is first rate.The staff were super friendly and efficient and you get a great view.I would say it is possibly not for the claustrophobic because it is so popular and things are a bit cramped.I titled my review "Piratey" because if I was a pirate this is where I would come for my tea every day. day.

“Rock on the beach First Sunday May to September”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We stumbled upon this event by chance on the 5th May by staying in the delightful picturesque village of Dittisham Devon. Every first Sunday of the month through the summer they plan a music event on the edge of the beautiful river Dart.The pub spills over onto the beach & they put on a fabulous BBQ & a huge paella. The band "The Penguins" played for nearly four hours & rocked the crowd! Boats stopped to enjoy the afternoon of sun & music too. A truly fab event if this is your kind of thing!!!
