We love this place almost as much as we love the beach and the coastal walks around Bantham. It never fails to deliver good food, reasonably priced with a friendly welcome. The beer is excellent and the portions generous with a healthy range of fish dishes including their house fish pie.

Went for dinner. We had high hopes after having this highly recommended to us. The menu choice was not as good as I'd expected, but portion sizes were HUGE. Service left a little to be desired (I asked for gluten free bread to come with my starter, which they offered, but it didn't arrive until after I'd finished the starter!),... More

Went for dinner here and when we turned up had no idea what we had to do with regards to getting a table or food. No one wanted to help and the waitresses told us to ask the bar staff. Finally got our food but now 2 out of 5 of us have spent the evening being sick. Service was... More

Visited this evening to celebrate family members birthday, nine if us for evening dinner (6 adults and 3 children). There is a children's menu, plus colouring pages to keep the children busy. Delicious food, we all enjoyed our meals, but there was way too much on everyone's plates! We all had different meals, the taster sea food sharing platter is... More

Super pub, landlord and staff made us feel very welcome, great beer, excellent food, will definitely go back. Would recommend booking a table for food, it's very popular. Just a Short walk from the beach with great views.

We visited the Sloop Inn at Bantham for an evening meal with the family, reserving a table because, from previous experience, it is sometimes fully booked. There is limited parking at the rear of the pub, but easy disabled access from there to the restaurant. We were welcomed by the landlord and chose food from both the standard menu and... More

There's pub food and there's the Sloop Inn pub food. Annie had fish and chips and I the fish pie. Both dishes were served quickly and were hot and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. There was simply no room for desert so we went for a long walk along the picturesque beach before heading back to Shute Farm... More

A St Austell Brewery and my childhood local. We stayed here for a week to visit our family who live in the area. My son, sister and Mum. The rooms were lovely, decorated nicely and everything you needed. My suite had a bathroom with a L bath and a great over bath shower, a double and a room which would... More

The Sloop is a wonderfully historic Inn, location is superb - mins from beach. Great surfing beach. Comfortable, clean rooms. Compact & bijou!! Great breakfast- and evening bar meals. Competitively priced. Will definitely stay again! Thanks Sloop.

We did not stay after having seen the dirty bathroom (hairs everywhere, dirty toilet) and the dusty and hairy room. It looked as if it has not been cleaned after the last guests. The sheets covering the bed were dirty and full of dog hairs. Totally overpriced!!!!!
