Always make a point of coming here for fish and chips whenever we visit, mainly because we know the fish is freshly caught. Cod or haddock in small, medium, large or jumbo portions are the staple order. The jumbo size is too big for me but for a tenner you can't go wrong. It's just a pub by the sea that does good fish. Or you can choose from the selection of fish on the specials board, depending on what's been caught. .
There is a choice of chips or jacket; the meal comes with just a small salad garnish, but salad, mushy peas and other sides are available. There is a good selection of deserts, with the 'usuals' on the menu and a varied selection of cakes, pies and tarts in a cabinet - all served with a choice of double or clotted cream, ice-cream or custard. Portions were big enough to share between two! We had portions of white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake, lemon meringue and chocolate biscuit cake - all very scrummy, priced at £4.95 each.
There is also a soft whippy ice-cream machine for children in cone or tub, or various flavours of the local Salcombe ice-cream.
It isn't a posh wine bar, no fancy decor, but is always very popular with locals and visitors. You can't book a table but have to take pot luck. If full, the staff take your name and call you when a table is free. It doesn't normally take too long. Children under 14yrs are not allowed to eat in the bar restaurant, but there is another 'family' area which is quite acceptable.
No real view of the sea from inside, but in summer we have just sat outside overlooking the sea watching the sun go down - with glass of wine in hand. Magical.
