We stayed in Budleigh Salterton last month and were lucky enough to be there for Ukelele night at the Salterton Arms. It was a Monday - so check it out if you are in town on a Monday. It's a great nights entertainment - singing along is encouraged. They don't have food service on Ukelele nights but pass around free... More

We came in for a cheeky beer which was ace as it was great to try and Otter Ale but the food menu did not keep us from staying to have dinner. It is a lovely pub and a nice bar staff.

We've just visited the Salterton Arms - local Otter ales were great, as was the Dartmouth Brewery Jail Ale too. We had a burger and a rump steak - both well cooked and presented, both very tasty and great value for money. Our two dogs were no problem and the pub was buzzy without being rammed on a Friday night... More

We stayed a few days in Budleigh Salterton and tried the pub because it was listed in the Good Beer Guide. The meals we had were lovely, home made fish pie and lamb pie but the Otter Amber was not in good condition. Nice atmosphere and staff.

Walked in to see Reserved notices everywhere. There was one free table and a handful in but no one wanted to serve me on my own. If you cannot offer hospitality to strangers then say so up front.

Karen L, Representitive at The Salterton Arms, responded to this review

We are very sorry you had an unpleasant visit to our pub, however you do not say which day of the week you were there. If this was a Monday evening as I suspect, this is our extremely busy and very popular ukulele night and the only night of the week our kitchen is closed. All our staff are polite... More
