We were looking for lunch in a spot with a view in Kingsbridge when we turned this up in the town guide. Just south of the town at the end of the promenade, great views of the creek. Downstairs is dog-friendly and recently redesigned in the gastro-mode. Very well done. Very young staff who were attentive and interested. My risotto... More

Tried in vain to get a table on a Tues in late April without booking Pre-booked and went the next evening and had a really special meal. Relaxed vibe and food is of a high standard. The waitress with long blonde hair was very approachable despite being so busy, and answered questions about the menu choices. On her recommendation we... More

The Crabshell, situated on the quay at Kingsbridge, has been a favorite of mine for many years. It's also changed ownership a few times along the way - but always been really good. I had dinner there on Easter Sunday - and yet again - the Crabshell was a real hit with everyone. It's always nice to enjoy a delicious... More

We went for lunch whilst visiting family in the area. The views from the upstairs restaurant were lovely but we thought the food average and rather expensive.

We booked at least a couple of months ahead but were told rudely by the male manager that it was already boooked months ahead. As we thought nobody took... More

A family outing at one of our favourite venues didn't disappoint, although a little building work still carrying on. Good variety on the lunchtime menu, reasonably priced, the views are simply exceptional, and the staff ready to please...well worth a visit.

Fab looking pub, starters were nice but two were finished by the time the last one arrived- which we had to ask for. Main course meals were really tasty (duck pizza was delicious) but the onion rings were missed off the burger. The service unfortunately let the evening down.. we had five different waitresses throughout the meal who were all... More
