Booked table online, book in advance as very popular place. Friendly welcome. Nice two storey building with a few different styles of seating areas. Great restaurant to visit, especially if good weather as you can sit outside with views of the estuary. Our weather not...More

Best view, by far, from a pub/restaurant in Kingsbridge. Excellent food inside and wood fired pizzas if you're outside.... the most sophisticated venue in town... very pricey but worth it in terms of location....

Just had lunch today which was a seafood sharing board for two. Absolutely Delicious. Can I suggest that they limit the smoking area outside. There's nothing worse than someone lighting up when you're about to eat especially if you're seated under the canopy.

The food is fine, but it is not worth either the price or the fact that we had to book a few days in advance. The mussels were poor and overpriced, the pizzas were fine, and the fish and chips were no more than adequate....More

Good food but can get very busy, hectic and crowded. So turn up early. Has limited car parking but nice setting over the water IF the tide is in!

Excellent position overlooking the river, but a shadow of the pub it was in days of yore. £10 for an average tasteless crab sandwich was a rip off. Seemed to be a glorified pizza restaurant if that's your scene I dare say there are cheaper...More
