There were 6 of us in our party and we all had the carvery. 3 good choices of meat. Beef,gammon and pork. Really good choice of vegetables. The young lady serving...

Have been here a few times and the food as been average. Thought I'd try it one last time. The waitress was stood chatting to a group of loud boys, also not wearing the usual uniform.

Good food at reasonable prices. Menus selection was fine- pub grub. Good selection of beers and cider. Great sea view and right on the beach. Friendly staff but not prepared to step outside of the menu offerings. Service was a little slow and it was not that busy. Would recommend booking to get a table at busy times.

The location and views from this place are stunning and worth a visit on there own. The staff were helpful and friendly, the place is dog and kid friendly which is ideal being located where it is, but expect it to be busy and outside seating at a premium. Prices for drinks reflected the location but the selection was good....

Expect this venue to be packed in good weather. We stopped by for a quick drink on a gorgeous Sunday and it was hard to get a seat outside, but that was expected. The staff were really pleasant, and although it was very busy it didn't deter from the service received.

Only staying for two nights but booked an extra night at last minute. Tiny room but adequate for a short stay. Friendly, accommodating staff. Lovely views from restaurant and rooms. Has a Torpoint postcode, but is much further away than I expected, my fault for not researching and booking a break after a bottle of wine! Not a lot to...

We visited the Inn on the Shore after a lovely walk from Seaton along the beach to Downderry. From the beach the Inn on the Shore looks rather precarious perched right on the cliff top. A very easy walk up an access road and through the lovely town memorial garden leads right past the Inn. The interior is modern and...
