The service is fine, the atmosphere is fine, the food is fine other than the fact that the menu is the same as it has always been, the only difference is that they removed the curry which oddly enough is the only meal I defaulted to, everything else seemed unappealing to me other than the sizzling steak which they used...

We loved this place. It has been updated in recent years and it was great. We had a variety of dishes in our group and all were pleased with their selections. Very nice service, bright windows, overlooks the downs, clean, service was swift, price was reasonable. Loved it and would highly recommend it.

We quite often eat here on a Saturday evening. Can be very busy as it's a very popular venue. The food is really good and the staff friendly. The view across Lyme Bay is always fantastic.

Visited the Babbacombe Inn with my wife on Saturday and sat outside enjoying the fabulous views accompanied by a welcome pint of Bays 'Devon Dumpling' on draught.
