My wife and I were in the Slapton Ley area on a Sunday, needed lunch and just happened on this pub tucked away next to the tower. It has a really traditional, welcoming look and feel and a good range of beers. It wasn't a problem that we hadn't booked a table.

We ordered 2 chicken roast dinners (the beef had already sold out) and were rewarded by really tasty, massive, chicken and well cooked veg. Very, very, enjoyable. Not cheap at £15 each but, given the location and the quality was totally happy.

Would recommend and would make a point of returning if in the area.

The menu totally undersells the quality of meals served. It matches or surpasses food I've had in quality restaurants in London and Surrey, with a better price tag.

Came to tower inn on Sunday (1/10/17) with family and friends and I have to say probably one of best roasts ever , we had chicken and all trimmings but it was half a chicken !!! Superb. Came back on 03/10/17 as a couple and whilst a fairly quiet evening the food was excellent. We had short rib beef and French bouillabaisse. Staff friendly and prices sensible and lovely atmosphere a dgoodwas delicious

The meal was quite reasonable but it comes at a price. Sadly service was almost non existent and whilst the 2 young people on front of house were delightful they were untrained and left to their own devices. Management must get a grip because I will not be returning until they do so.

A lovely old pub in a poetic setting, run by very young folk. Nice atmosphere. Good beers and wine. The menu is enticing and the specials board is particularly interesting, but turns out to be on the expensive side because no vegetables or potatoes at all are included in the mains price (approx. £18). No bread offered apart from the garlic bread served with the bouillabaisse -- a curious addition to what was otherwise a good version of this dish. I woke this morning craving salad and vegetables! A new experience for me! The bar food seems much better value. Service was haphazard. Could be a really amazing place with a little more attention to detail and someone welcoming at the helm. ...and maybe not so many naff artworks on the wall.
