Salcombe Bars and Pubs
Your Salcombe holiday let might have all mod cons (for example High House with its own Sonos music system, or Fore Decks with a media server containing hundreds of songs and movies). But there is nothing like live music! Head to the Island Street Bar & Grill for some R n’ R and warm up in a pub beforehand!
The Ferry Inn (Salcombe) ££
The Ferry Inn must be the best located pub in the whole of the UK. It is right on the waters edge with fabulous views across the estuary. Sitting on the wall, legs dangling and a drink in hand is a must-do when in Salcombe.

The Victoria (Salcombe) ££
The Victoria jokes that they offer a man-crèche; ladies leave your husband’s in our safe hands whilst you go shopping! This is a valued service, but don’t you ladies miss out on some locally sourced delicious-ness! With a roaring log fire and a cockle-warming crab bisque for a winters day you will be very happy tucked in here. And for the summer, freshly grilled fish and homemade icecream are the order of the day. Gents, some fine ales await you too…

Island Street Bar and Grill (Salcombe) ££
This is a waterfront bar alive and kicking with live music every weekend and a popular cocktail 2-for-1 happy hour on a Friday night. Definitely one to try if you fancy having a boogey. Throughout the day and evening they also serve a menu including burgers, steaks and BBQ spare ribs.

The Millbrook (Southpool) ££
Offering a gastronomic experience with food from award winning French chef, J-P (booking essential). Be prepared for some quirkiness including Squirrel wrapped in Rabbit! In the summer months, enjoy good quality freshly grilled fish, paella’s and local sausages from the outdoor BBQ. The best way to get to the Millbrook is by boat in the summer when there are big Spring tides enabling you to travel up the creek (with a paddle). The beautiful journey leads you through Swallows and Amazons-esque settings.

The Crabshell (Kingsbridge) ££
The Crabshell has seen a revival over the past 3 years. They have creatively taken it from a smelly, rundown waterside hovel into a buzzing, successful waterside destination. From Salcombe, the best way to get to The Crabshell is by boat – cruise up the estuary towards Kingsbridge, tie up against the wall and hop up to the bar! They serve great pub food too with a seafood slant plus pizzas homemade and baked in their wood fired oven.
