A lovely restaurant with a menu wide enough to suit all our party which is not easy. Good quality throughout and a pleasant setting.

We booked in for lunch. The view from the terrace is stunning. We had their own take on Heritage tomatoes to start. These are prepared overnight and this simple light dish has real flavour. For mains we had fish and chips. The fish was light in a crispy batter. The restaurant has limited mains for lunch so choice was limited... More

Don't be put off by the entrance which isn't a patch on the views and ambience of the resteraunt. Great service, spacious and comfortable seating and best views in Salcombe (heaters were put on without hesitation so we could sit outside). Perhaps most importantly the food was great; fantastic quality fresh sea bass with great flavours and generous accompaniments, puddings... More

Had read mixed reviews on here so wasn't expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised. . The restaurant was busy and they only had a table in the lobby. It was great watching and listening to the staff greeting guests and on the phone, they were all exceptionally polite and helpful. What a great group of people! We had a... More

Not a good dinner or overall experience at Dick and Wills. In terms of ambience the music consisted of slightly too high volume, very dated US west coast rock. They did change it when we asked but an odd and out of keeping music choice. The table staff were rushed almost in the extreme to take our order, serve it... More

We are sorry you didn't like our music. Not sure what "US west coast rock"is. Our records show that you were seated at your table for in excess of 2.4 hours, so cannot understand your comment "table staff almost rushed in the extreme". We do clean all our tables with sanitiser ( which I would hope that you would expect... More

This was our first visit to Salcombe and we couldn't have found a nicer place to stop for lunch. We had a lovely view across the bay from the outdoor terrace and really enjoyed a light lunch. The Ginger & Lime Plymouth Gin Fizz was really good!

Difficult this one, decided after looking outside at menu to go in for lunch on Bank holiday Monday. On arrival sat down outside lovely setting and views. Unfortunately when it came to lunch menu only had burger or fish and chips, I asked for the additional lunch menu (as stated on menu at table and outside) to be told they... More
