Great food and lovely to mingle with the locals! Good portion sizes and lovely home cooked food. Especially the desserts. Very dog friendly and cosy. We found the staff to be friendly and service was with a smile!

What more could you want. A Great location. Friendly people. And very good food. Basic room and the better for it. Un-pretencious and fun. Dogs also loved it. Although we did not book to eat on a very busy Saturday night we were found a table very quickly.

We visited the Sloop Inn for lunch, but it was a little disappointing overall. The original pub area is nice and old, but the extension is a bit like a village hall! Fortunately we were able to sit in the original pub area. The food we ordered was OK. The fish (with the fish and chips) was good, but the... More

Chose to visit because of their website. Bar area looked lovely, but shown to an area that can only be described as a panelled village hall. Ordered whole plaice which turned up with about 12 anchovies draped across it, accompanied by an array of onions, peppers,courgettes and tomatoes which had been so microwaved they were inedible, the supposed local new...

The bar area is quite quaint, but the restaurant area is over-themed as a comedy sailing ship - badly. Lighting is too bright, nothing smaller than a table for 4, food OK, but nothing special (despite prices being a tad on the high side), service perfunctory and adequate. Caters for families on holiday and I guess the sailing ship theme... More

We enjoyed a nice lunch here a morning on the beach. The staff were lovely, particularly the chap behind the bar (Tom?). Friendly and courteous. It's obviously a locals bar as there was a great atmosphere in the bar area. Made the pub really. In terms of the food, I opted for the burger which was huge but delicious whilst... More

went for a supper and was very disappointed. The back seating area was very grubby - the bin was overflowing and their was litter around it and down the side of the pub. Lots of dirty plates and glasses on tables. My partner had the steak which was disappointing and I had the plaice which was ok but swamped by... More

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
