First off, I didn't stay here, so don't know about the rooms. I came with a massive pack of friends to eat. Good Scampi n Chips (I know, I know, boring as hell, but i don't eat land based meat and there wasn't much else.) My friend had the 'Thai style' Salmon steak which was basically salmon and veg covered... More

Friendly staff and reasonably priced menu. I have a food intolerance which they accomodated without fuss. Totnes is an interesting town and this pub is on the river with outside seating with good view

If you're in Totnes there are lots of options for eating out, but give this place a try. It's set on the River Dart and has a fabulous outside eating/drinking area. Inside restaurant and bar are really nice too. It's not the cheapest but the food was really nice so well worth a visit.

My wife and I popped down to Totnes to celebrate my sister in laws graduation. We were originally supposed to stay at Dartington Hall but there was no availability, hence the booking at the Steam Packet. I have to admit, I was very pleasantly surprised. The last time I visited the Steam Packet is was probably trying to buy underage... More
