Pubs with rooms

Glorious foodie inn nestled in South Hams, award-winning menus, arrive by boat when the tide's right

Arrive before the boats do – they drop anchor a step away and their first port of call is this inn. The atmosphere is charming, the food is quite something, and perfect ingredients are worshipped in best seasonal style. Tuck into Start Bay crab, confit of duck leg with chorizo cassoulet, and rhubarb and apple crumble; and look out for popular 'guest chef' nights. In winter, a log fire warms the immediate bar area while padded settles and wheelback chairs cluster comfortably around tables in snugs. The stream-side terrace is tiny but assures entertainment in summer once the ducks are at play, so sit back and watch with a pint of Red Rock IPA. The owners have ambition and integrity and succeed in delivering some of the best bounty in the area; visit the Veg Shed and stock up on produce from local allotments.

Local points of interest from Charlie Baker:

Local points of interest from
Charlie Baker:

  • Sail or motor to The Millbrook by boat from Salcombe or Kingysbridge. Stunning "Swallows & Amazons" approach up South Pool Creek and moor up at the village pontoon
  • Some stunning circular walks to and from the pub with views over the Salcombe estuary.
  • Take the kids to feed the ducks at the stepping stones or paddle in the brook at the back of the pub.
  • Historic 16th Century Inn in a chocolate box village of thatched cottages and creekside lanes.
  • Avoid the pub poltergeist!
  • Flooded in June 2016 with over 100ml of rain in an hour. We were waist deep in the pub when the brook at the back diverted through the bar. Our amazing locals saved us from ruin with their army of mops, buckets, cleaning, carpentry and support.
