Neil and the team have done it yet again! Time after time we keep coming back, the quality of the food, service and atmosphere are always faultless. I reccomend trying the fish and chips, or should i say baby 'Jaws'!!! Also the sunday roasts are to die for, just like the way mama did them! if you are in the... More

Fantastic friendly atmosphere here, nothing ever too much trouble to help us, even down to making sure our spaniel was ok (fresh water etc). A pleasure and joy... More

We ate here on New Years eve and although there were a couple of bits sold out on the menu we had a lovely lunch by a warm fire for our three wet dogs.

Visited this pub on a few occasions whilst staying in Salcombe. Our evening meal was very good and staff were efficient and friendly. Food was also very good and the special menu was fresh and appetising! Overall a good pub for both food or just a drink!

Why "do I have to?" Because I'm bored of making coffees. The most rudest unfriendliest pubs I've had the displeasure of being to. Why bother being in the hospitality trade if you can't be civil to your customers.

We asked locally for a recommendation and were directed to The Kings Arms as we were after a Sunday lunch, roast if possible. We had the roast beef and it was excellent with a fine accompaniment of vegetables. I would definitely recommend this pub!

Stopped here for lunch. Female member of staff very unwelcoming bordering on the rude. I ordered a coffee and a prawn sandwich, coffee was the worst I have ever had, prawn sandwich obviously made with frozen prawns which were still very cold in the centre. Confidence was not enhanced when a member of staff could be heard asking in a... More
