Located opposite the harbour with fantastic views this lovely old Devon Inn has great atmosphere, good beer and very good pub grub. Small inside if weather inclement but plenty of space to the front to sit outside and people watch whilst enjoying a few beers.

We were only able to stay one night but wished we'd stayed longer. The rooms are lovely, full of character and overlooking both the harbour and sea. The evening meal was excellent in terms of taste and presentation. The full English breakfast was also good. The staff were attentive and the bar busy. The selection of real ales was superb....

This hotel is very well run and gives you great food and service. All the staff are hard working and very professional at what they do.
