We went whilst on holiday. There were 4 Adults & 3 Kids. The Staff were very friendly, food was excellent. The atmosphere was great. (There was one chap with a fantastic laugh.) We would highly recommend it. The pool table was fun to.

The Old Inn is conveniently placed on the main road from Salcombe to Kingsbridge, and if you don't have a car the bus stop is literally on your doorstep. This is very a useful way of getting into the pretty seaside village of Salcombe, where parking is impossible and overpriced.

There is a small supermarket nearby if you need to get anything. The owner and her staff are all very friendly, nice people, the breakfast is hearty and the rooms are clean and tidy. They also serve a nice pint of real ale.

I would not give it 5/5 though for two reasons:

Noise. As a working pub, it was quite noisy after 10.30pm. I guess I should have expected this, but having the jukebox playing rock music with only 2-3 people in there seemed a little unusual. It may well keep some travellers awake.

Timings. The breakfast also starts at 9.30am, which is very late if you want to get up and go walking early in the lovely countryside nearby. Even 8.30am-10.30am would at least allow hikers to be 'out the door' by 9am. Check-in time is also 4.30pm, which again, seems a little late on paper. The landlady reminded me of this time on our arrival when we turned up at 1.30pm. I had no idea it was 4.30pm and we had been on the road since 5am involving family lifts, trains and a flight from Belfast. The landlady let us put our bags in the room early, but as first impressions go, I could not help feeling that it was not exactly a warm welcome.

When we stayed at the Old Inn, for us it was very much just a bed for the night, as we had plans with family in the evening. We had a very friendly welcome when we checked in, and Rob showed us how to get in, should we get back after the pub had closed.
We both had a very comfortable night's sleep - I slept under the softest duvet I've probably ever encountered, it was wonderful! A good hot shower in the morning and a cup of coffee from the in-room facilities meant I was ready for the day. We went downstairs to the bar to check out, and the landlady Jo offered us a cup of tea or coffee, which we gladly accepted. We had already decided not to have the full English breakfast, but she then offered us a bacon sandwich each, which we couldn't resist. 5 minutes later, 2 sandwiches appeared, piled high with fantastic tasty bacon.
After our breakfast, we settled up and checked out. I was very impressed with the Old Inn, and will gladly go back there again for the next family get-together!

Room Tip: There are three rooms, only one is en-suite - this is the one we stayed in. The other two have priv...
