We stopped off at the Pickwick on our way back home from the beach, as we heard the pizzas are top notch.
We arrived to easy parking, entering the pub you come across a table full of board games (which my daughter promptly sorted through and picked one for us) walked into bar and was quickly greeted by a super lovely member of staff. We were seated and drink orders taken from our table. Soon after we ordered our pizzas and then took no time at all to arrive.
I have lived in Italy and have to say, the Pickwick Pizza is the real deal. Just like you would find in a back street in Rome. Wonderful!
With the colder months now approaching we look forward to visiting when the fire is roaring and having delicious pizza with family and friends to enjoy :)
Thanks for the fantastic service and food. We will be back.

My boyfriend and I are staying locally for the week and sadly we couldn't get over to Burgh Island for some drinks and some food as the sea tractor was broken.
Luckily we came across a hidden gem of the Pickwick Inn! We had some drinks and got chatting to the Landlord who was very welcoming and friendly. The staff were also very good and always kept busy and promptly served customers and checked on tables.
We decided to have some food here as we were hungry. We ordered 2 pizza's and they were incredible! For how busy they were at the pub, we didn't have to wait long at all. The staff checked on us to see if we were enjoying the food and also to clear our plates once we'd finished. The pizza was that good I could have had a second!
We will definitely be back for some more food and drinks during our time in Bigbury!

Great food - best ham, egg and chips 'we've ever had'. Child's pizza great - hand made and wood fired.

Service a little slow but we hadn't booked and were told there would be a wait - and it was well worth it.

Good value too!

We contacted the restaurant midweek to check on getting 8 pizzas for the takeaway service that evening. Friendly and helpful reception. They explained that they were busy that evening and to accommodate their kitchen we agreed to collect the food at 7.45. In the end they were ready at 9.15. Shame, because the place has a good “buzz”. Would be prepared to go again, but only to eat in the pub.
