This quaint white-painted 16th-century village pub is little more than a good mooring rope’s throw from South Pool creek on the Salcombe estuary. No surprise then that it attracts boat-owners from all along the coast. Its compact courtyard with bench tables is to one side, while at the rear a small terrace overlooks a pretty stream and fields. Open fires warm the two traditionally decorated beamed bars, where South Hams ales such as Wild Blonde await. Menus tempt with top-notch food using the best South Hams meats and fish. A starter of devilled kidneys, crab bisque or freshly-caught mackerel, depending on the season. Delights among the main courses may include turbot with chive butter, loin of venison or wild mushroom risotto. Stay over in the comfortable loft accommodation.
