“A Fantastic Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

i cannot praise this venue enough - great food great beer and a fantastic location.

Staff were exceptional and as football fans wearing our colours we were treated no differently than locals or folk on holiday.

My favorite away day pub

“Just for a change”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Four of us decided that we wanted a change from all the festive food and back to reality so we chose the Buccaneer at Babbacombe and were not disappointed. we took our choice from the extensive menu and we all enjoyed the lovely and well presented meals.

“Buccin Awesome!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Occasionally meander up to Babbacombe downs for a drink and the Buccaneer is a must. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and there is always a pleasant atmosphere. We visited last Saturday and tried the food menu for the fist time. I have to say how pleasantly surprised we all were with the quality of the food and how reasonable the prices were. The blonde waitress who brought us our food was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. We told her how much we enjoyed our food and she recommended the roast beef on Sundays, so we will be back soon !!!

Would reccommend to everyone, whether it's just for a drink or a good quality meal as well!!

“Friendly place, good menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Whilst staying in the sefton hotel we nipped to this pub to get some lunch (fancied a decent pub burger) and to watch the Southampton vs Chelsea game and we were impressed with the selection available (not by the football or the result!). Went for the peanut satay chicken burger which was pretty nice and generous in portion size. My relatives enjoyed theirs too.

Would be even better if the sound was on the tv's when games are on but we enjoyed our time there all the same.

“xmas cheer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

I visited the Buccaneer in Babbacombe Devon across the xmas period and found it to be a really lovely place to go and relax and eat , the food on offer was tremendous , very high quality and priced well , but it was the atmosphere and the staff that made it special , the landlord Steve and his wife and family work hard to make you feel like your a local always taking time to talk to you which was great .
The area is stunning and the position of the pub is second to none in terms of views from the front deck.
Ive already spoken to them about coming down and staying there in one of their wonderfully fitted out rooms (I couldn't believe how reasonable they were considering the location) and it certainly made my xmas break .
My recommendation is if your looking to come to the stunning South Devon coast then drop in and use the Buccaneer ..`you definitely wont be disappointed in any shape or form'...PB.
