We have visited the Sloop Inn many times when in South Devon, Bantham beach being one of our favourite and our dogs! A Cold Monday in early November we were looking forward to Fish and Chips at the Sloop. We were very very disappointed. To our surprise it was cold, a blazing fire had met us on our previous visits. All four of us ordered fish and chips which took some time to arrive although we were not too bothered by this, thinking it gave us more time for our appetite to swell. All four meals were very disappointing. The fish was overcooked, the batter was infact burnt in places, two in our party ate the chips, two did not as they were not enticing to the palate to say the least. We asked for tartare sauce which didn't arrive, we asked the barman and he eventually brought it. We will try it once more, not on a Monday as we wonder if this was the problem, staff off etc. but we are sorry we have this bad experience in what was our favourite pub in South hams.
