This is a nice old pub right on harbour well just off it up a very steep hill, Lovely atmosphere with a mix of holiday makers and locals who mostly work on the boats trips so they were a mind of information, a really nice sea side pub

this is off the beaten track next to the hole in the wall seems more of a pub for the locals but the barman was very friendly and we had a lovely chat to him.

The Devon Arms is what I would class as a traditional pub serving good quality reasonably priced food. The menu is not extensive but is perfectly adequate with a extra blackboard offering daily specials. The barman who served us was pleasant,polite and helpful and the food was of generous portions and well-presented. I started with whitebait - the wife opted... More

Had an early meal on Saturday. The staff knew we were going to the theatre so they did all they could to ensure we got our meal as quickly as possible without compromising on service or quality of food. Excellent value for money; definitely worth a visit.

My dad reccomended this place for traditional homely food, washed down with a guiness. Reasonably priced, big portions and all with a homemade touch. Staff really friendly and accomodating, we had bought a record player that afternoon and they let us plug it in/play a few tracks to check it worked. This pub also allows dogs.

We visited today, even though all the tables had reserved signs on them we were fitted in, food was fantastic and service was second to none, even catering for our extremely fussy ten year old. Would highly recommend and will come again.
