Not sure how you would rate my experience or the friends that joined me in ordering the steak for my wife's companies Christmas party personally I found the seating area cramped although fair to say the starter (baked Camembert) was OK not quite perfect though, however the steak was appalling so bad i could not even cut it without difficulty this was not the only case 5 of us suffered the same problem in fact I'm sure this piece of meat wasn't slaughtered it gave up and die of natural causes (old age) the staff were informed and we were told the owner would sort out some form of recompense , it has to be said that all of us individually paid £25.00 per head not cheap and certainly not good value,
The recompense was then given to the company director to be knocked of HIS tab on the bar bill and not back to the individuals who ordered and paid for the steak ,even less appealing when you consider that some of us couldn't even have a drink given driving duties so we lost the whole refund and were never told what this may have been ???? .So to sum up over price bar over price food crap quality and an owner that has some really weird ideas of customer service .wont be going again or recommending .

Living in Torquay we are inundated with pubs,clubs and eating establishments.We have tried most of the eateries in the area but regularly patronise The Babbacombe Inn, usually for Sunday lunch.We have never experienced the night time entertainment so cannot comment, but we can say that the food is always excellent,the service exemplary and the surroundings bright and cheerful.The award winning gardens have stunning views over Lyme Bay.
The staff,bar and waiting,are happy,smiley and very polite,very refreshing when we live in an age of being MATE to offhanded bar staff in early adolescence.I would recommend The Babbacombe Inn to locals and visitors alike.

Very comfortable place to eat , staff very friendly . We visit Babbacombe for holidays several times a year and enjoy the food and hospitality at the Babbacombe Inn,
Added bonus for us is that it is pet friendly in the window seats which suits our little Westie (Radley)
Outdoor sitting area is very well furnished offering stunning views over Lyme Bay.

Have eaten here on several occasions this year and each time have had a great experience. Most recently enjoyed a delicious lasagne, perfect for these cold winter evenings. The service is always great with no exception last time. The Friday night entertainment is always brilliant and what with the lovely food makes the best Friday night out in the bay. Have also just started to go on a Monday night as well when there is a fast and fun 'speed quiz' .
