Visited for lunch and found it had just been reopened after a refit. The ground floor has 3 huge TVs Probably great for a sports bar but out of keeping for a normal bar all screens were on. We ordered sandwiches and were not impressed.The fillings were not great. The pub seemed cold and lacked any atmosphere. Hopefully things will... More

Six of us after an evening meeting wanted a reasonably priced meal in a local pub. The Salterton Arms has recently received a £250k refurbishment by Punch Taverns and is now one of their top tier pub restaurants. Fairly standard pub type menu with 'favourites' like Lasgane (highly rated by one diner); Chilli Con Carne (also rated highly); burger with... More

We visited the pub yesterday for Sunday lunch. We received a very warm welcome and were informed this was the very first time they had provided a carvery. We had roast beef with all the trimmings. It was all very tasty and the Yorkshire puds were fabulous! Excellent value.

What on earth has happened to this once super pub? Going back in December after a break of several years, our group found the pub practically empty, with zero atmosphere, and the food mediocre (Tesco budget-type pizza?) to say the least. Such a shame.

A good honest pub with friendly staff, really tasty, good quality, home cooked food and a good choice of real ales. Jail Ale, Rioja, ham egg and chips and vegetable chilli all for a very reasonable price and full satisfaction. Thank you

This is not a posh nosh pay over the top pub/bistro. What it is is a friendly pub with a good selection of beer serving very tasty, very edible, pub food and very sensible prices Chilli and rice and a lovely fish pie for £7.50 each is oh so reasonable in this expensive area of Devon. So if your a... More

We glimpsed the pub while walking up from the seafront, and came back to it having walked the length of the town. Had a table upstairs. Lots of old photos to look at while waiting for our food, which was pretty quick coming given it was a Sunday. Good portions and well cooked. Served by friendly staff. What more do... More
