A small pub in a beautiful setting serving excellent classic English pub food with a hint of French thrown in. Here you will find true seasonal field to plate eating using the best produce the local area has to offer accompanied by local ales and good quality French wines. Sunday roasts accompanied by live Jazz are especially popular.

The Millbrook Inn clear only wants rich adults to come and visit, its menu does not welcome children and this is a great shame.
Great pub, great atmosphere.
An interesting and different menu- think top end gastro pub. Lovely place to be, very friendly owners and helpful staff.
My husband and I ate at Millbrook tonight, absolutely beautiful meal and great service, thank you!
Lovely friendly and helpful staff. The best meal we had on holiday. Children were made to feel very welcome and a very reasonably priced children's menu.
The Ashburton Arms

Lovely pub and lovely landlords!! Three of us ate here over three nights and each meal was delicious and cooked to perfection. Would definitely recommed.
Friendly and helpful staff. We had a very nice meal here. Two young children with us and we were in an area to one side of the main bar, so it was not crowded and we were not rushed. A good selection on the menu. would definitey go back again.

A fabulous welcoming and friendly pub. We loved the pizzas here and ate here 3 times in 1 week as they were a lot more family friendly than the rest of the pubs in Salcombe. I really would recommend a visit here!
Extensive gin menu with suggested tonics and garnishes. Nice beer garden and excellent stone baked pizzas. Great spot for a sunny day!

Fantastic place to while away a few hours with the children entertained. The decoupage was really good and prices pretty reasonable.
The kids loved it here, really creative and a great rainy day activity

Hiring a traditional Salcombe Yawl or launch is a fabulous way to explore the Salcombe estuary taking in the beaches and wildlife along the way. The Salcombe Yawl is an attractive 16ft dingy unique to Salcombe suitable for racing or cruising with the family, or alternatively, less experienced sailors can hire a sturdier harbour launch with inboard engine to potter from beach to beach. Both are available on a weekly basis along with everything you need to have and enjoyable yet safe time on the water. Sailing tuition in a Salcombe Yawl, or leisurely skippered sails around the harbour are also available in the safe hands of experienced local sailor Scratch Hitchen.

Had a brilliant ride on the RIB. Saw seals out near Start Point and the remains of the lost village of Hallsands. Good information and great fun on the boat. Suitable for kids and adults
We had a brilliant time on the fast rib with Sea and Shore. Great fun and an amazing way to see the coastline.
Accessed either by boat, via a 10-minute walk through the woods from parking at Mill Bay, or a stroll from the Salcombe to East Portlemouth Ferry, Sunny Cove is a sandy beach which, as you might expect, catches the sun throughout the day, weather pending. It’s on the East Portlemouth side of the Salcombe Estuary opposite North Sands beach and Fort Charles, the ruined fortification that was originally constructed during the reign of Henry VIII to defend the Kingsbridge Estuary against French and Spanish Pirates. It’s a relatively gentle spot for swimming and ideal for picnics, lazy summer afternoons, and reaching on kayaks and paddle boards from other nearby beaches as well as being the perfect spot for building sandcastles. That said, the tide can come in quite quickly so make sure you don’t get caught out and be careful of the swell when bringing boats into the beach. Head there for the day in the summer or as a stop off en route to the café at Gara Rock or a longer walk along the coast path towards Prawle Point. Dogs are welcome all year round but keep in mind that there aren’t any facilities in the immediate vicinity (it would be a 10-15-minute walk along wooded footpaths) so take your sandwiches with you!

A beautiful sandy beach that is superb for children as you have to go out quite a way before the water gets deep. Water sports available. Access is via very narrow lanes so be prepared to reverse and parking is very limited.
