We ate in this pub on 2 occasions an would recommend the fish and chips really lovely.The menu is somewhat limited and is certainly high priced.The fish and chips were priced at £12.95 and as the chips were of the frozen variety I would politely suggest that is rather expensive.The staff were polite and attentive and the décor ok.

We have visited this pub every year as part of our holiday in Salcombe. what a disappointment in the quality of the food served. The crab sandwiches were made with bread which had been left exposed so that they were dry and stale and the ' home cooked ham' was a dubious colour . The menu which used to be based on Devon specialities was little different from any other menu in any pub anywhere , and for the first time no pasties !

We visited here recently for dinner after an evening spent surfing at the beach. The pub itself is nice enough, although parking is a struggle, but that is too be expected in small Devon villages! The service was good, the menu a bit boring, and the meals in my opinion overpriced. We paid £12 for scampi and chips and £12 for a bowl of pasta (which was cold) for the boys. The fish pie was nice although it was just fish pie, no veg or salad or anything to go with it. I had the vegetarian chilli, which was actually really delicious, but again over priced at £12.

For food that was decent enough but nothing special, we felt the prices are set high as there are lots of tourists around willing to pay over the odds, but as locals we felt we overpaid, we won't rush back.

The catering service here is really good and food taste is nice. The big portion sizes are great. On the downside it is a little expensive and I wish they could change the menu a bit because it's been the same for a longtime. But overall very good.

Went to Bantham with daughter, to check out beach, prior to commencement of school summer holiday, seems a good beach to take young children.
On the way to the beach, we went into the Sloop Inn for lunch. Nicely greeted by the duty staff, who in turn advised on specials etc., we chose from the light lunch/starter menu, which was reasonably priced. Lunch arrived promptly, and was wholesome and tasty, the serving staff were very helpful again, providing us with our other requests. I would imagine that some proper staff training goes on here, so well done!
The restaurant was clean and tidy, as were the toilets. Pub/restaurant could do with a minimal makeover!
