The Kingsbridge Inn is the oldest pub in Totnes, full of character and, at one time, the best pub in town. It has always had a good reputation for food, although this could fluctuate. However, since it was sold to Enterprise Inns in the first decade of the 21st century it has been on-and-off, shut for long periods, open under... More

Booked this pub as it has a nice upstairs room and space for a live band. It was a adult birthday celebration party for around 50 people. Unfortunately it changed hands through the time of booking. The new temporary managers (who should be permanent) responded well to the booking and provided a decent hot buffet at £7.95 a head. Will... More

We visited this lovely old pub last year whilst on holiday in Totnes so as we were back again in Oct/November this year we decided to go back since it is very close to our holiday cottage. The new owners seem friendly and chatty. We had some chips and a drink on the first evening, and just a drink on... More

A previous review 'Gone Downhill' is right. Since when is it ok to serve wine in a tumbler... or not provide matching wine glasses and ask if you want to drink the cider from the bottle. Just shoddy. The food was expensive for what was on offer which was limited. Its time to decide... be a drinking pub and have... More

We were hungry, happened to be by the sign for this pub so wandered up. It was early evening so the place was pretty empty. We looked at menu as we walked in and instantly the chef, who had been standing outside, popped over and said he had just changed the menu and it was all on a blackboard inside.... More

This used to be a charming old inn. The food is now ordinary and the service very slow. It took over an hour to serve a simple order. We were also left in a very poorly lit area.

gavin v, Owner at The Kingsbridge Inn, responded to this review

Hello Andy, May I ask when it was you came in? If we are busy we do tell people how long the wait will be as all our food is freshly prepared and cooked. This means it can take a bit longer for the food to come out. Especially if we are busy. I'm sorry you're not happy with the... More

Very good pub grub. Looked packed from outside but plenty of room inside. We had 2Vegetarian curries a queniou burger and a leek and spinach queche. All excellent with the curries being outstanding. The desserts were also very good. The service was good but slow.

Only popped in for a nibble. Ordered some side orders to share amongst us and overall we weren't very impressed. The food we had was quite bland and just didn't taste great and although it may not reflect the rest of the food, we will not be visiting again.

gavin v, Owner at The Kingsbridge Inn, responded to this review

Hello Dave, I am sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations. May I ask when you visited us and what it was you ordered? We don't really have much in the way of sides except chips and homemade beer battered onion rings. I would like to know so we can ensure this doesn't happen again as its the first... More

Under new ownership and re-opening 13th May. A very warm welcome awaits... The Kingsbridge Inn is the oldest pub in Totnes, dating back to the 17th Century. Every nook provides a little history and a lot of character. There is a private function room available upstairs which can be hired for wedding receptions, anniversaries or perhaps a business meeting. Whatever your requirements, the dedicated team will work with you to plan your event. You can even hire our Inn exclusively. Our log burner will keep you cosy on cold winter days, or you can soak up the rays during summer on our decked patio... We even welcome your well-behaved furry friends! Dog snacks available! Let The Kingsbridge Inn be your worst kept secret!
