Start Bay Inn

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

Located on the beach and with a freshwater reserve on its other side, the patio of this 14th-century inn overlooks the sea. The fishermen working from Start Bay deliver their catch direct to the kitchen; so does a local crabber, who leaves his catch at the back door to be cooked by the pub. The former landlord (father of landladies Clair and Gail) continues to dive for scallops. Be in no doubt therefore about the freshness of the seafood on the specials board. Look also for locally sourced steaks, burgers from the local butcher, and Salcombe Dairy ice creams. Ploughman’s, sandwiches and jackets are also available.
