Once the narrow country lanes to Beesands have been manouvred The Cricket Inn which is overlooking a shale beach and family run by Rachel and Nigel is well worth a visit. The rooms are clean and well furnished and the food which is cooked by Scott, the owners' son, who trained under Michael Caines is excellent, locally caught fish and... More

The food is beautiful, but be warned the portions are huge and more than enough to satisfy the hungriest of people, hats off to anyone who can finish 3 courses! The waiting on staff are courteous and efficient and the ambience is very cosy and pleasant.

Excellent pub/restaurant / hotel in the South Hams fishing village of Beesands 5 miles from Kinsbridge. Lovely food, great service and a thoroughly pleasant evening - Well worth the drive through the winding lanes to get there

Had the most superb lunch here. The food took a while to come, but it was well worth waiting for. Just delicious. The view is also worth the death drive down the narrowest and steepest little lanes!

We stayed in Hallsands for the week of the August bank holiday weekend, which is a lovely coastal walk (roughly 1.5miles) away. I noticed the sign on the door of The Cricket Inn saying kids eat free between 3pm and 5pm, so thought we should give it a go. Well what a great decision - the pub and the meal... More

My only criticism would be too much food as we really wanted a pud but could... More

Went out of our way for this treat of a restaurant. We have dogs and when we arrived there were no tables in the dog area (between the bar and the main restaurant) but the head barman laid out a table just for us! You get the feeling that this level of service with a smile is the norm. The... More

We didn't book and we had our dog with us, and we arrived at Sunday lunchtime - but the staff at the Cricket Inn fitted us in with no fuss at a dog-friendly table and proceeded to serve up one of the best roast dinners I have had in a very long time. My starter of scallops was also delicious.... More

We visited The Cricket Inn on recommendation on Trip Advisor. What had our dog with us and got there just as it opened for dinner. A friendly man showed us to a table in the bar area of the restaurant (with the dog) and took our drinks order. The meal was absolutely delicious. I had monkfish scampi while my husband... More

We visited today for Sunday Lunch and can't praise it enough. They were very busy and the staff told us there my be a slight wait but with such a brilliant settling who cares? The Sunday roast is fantastic with the best stuffing I've ever tasted. One of our company had the seafood pancake which was incredible. The internal decoration... More
