Visited the Steam Packet Totnes for Sunday lunch as a party of 18. Good location beside the river with an out side seating area. Went to the bar for a drink before lunch to find the first three pumps had run out of beer, ended up with a pint of Doonbar, have had better. Pretty average welcome, bar and restaurant...

Warm and welcoming, this is the nicest place I have eaten in Totnes. The menu catered for all tastes, and offered large, tasty portions. It's a really traditional pub - open fire, amazing position on the sea front, cosy seating areas and a separate restaurant. I ordered a small size mezze which somehow came out large, when I pointed this...

We live locally and have visited the Steam Packet on a number of occasions for dinner. The food is normally very good but the service is very variable - it can be terrible. But, on our last visit, we did have good service thanks to Paige!

Visited with friends on their recommendation. We must have come on a bad day. The girl taking the drinks order didn't know what beer they had apart from the fizzy, gassy, nauseous stuff. When we asked for proper beer she ummed and aahed - she didn't know what real ale was, I think. Then she took our food orders. Four...

We did not stay here - just had a couple of very good meals. Ate here a couple of times - once in the bar and once in the restaurant area. On both occasions the service was excellent. The kitchen was efficient and though on one occasion they were very busy we hardly had to wait. Pity - 'cos the...

Table booked in the restaurant for eight pm last evening. Attitude problem. Booking not found and, instead of apologising said we could wait until someone had finished. When it was pointed out that the reservation had been made, the landlord stomped off to bring back their diary to show that the girl had failed to enter our booking. Totally unable...

Visited this place yesterday, although not for the first time! The environment was clean and welcoming but the outstanding part was the food. OMG the scampi and the chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce I cannot find words for. I have not eaten such great scampi for many years. My grandson also had the scampi and despite being only one year,...

We didn't book but they found us a table despite the sun being out and everyone sitting outside having a drink. The food, particularly the Thai curry was really good, hubby had the Sunday roast but I'm really glad I went for something different. The staff were attentive despite it being busy an the food didn't take too long to...

I have to say this is one of the best hotels / B&B we have ever stayed in. The hotel is right on the river in Totnes, off the main road, so was quite peaceful. The view over the river was wonderful. We even saw a seal that evening. We thought the staff were amazing! Really friendly, attentive (but not...

Friday night we decided to travel down to Devon as the forecast was good, Never having staying in Totnes before be took pot luck and choose The Steam Packet. Quirky bijou seaside themed room newly renovated, down side a very small bed, but a lovely walk in shower. From the time we arrived until checking out we were met by...
