Pubs and Eateries
Fine coast and country dining
Alongside its abundance of other qualities, this unique and spectacular region also offers you an exquisite taste of the West Country with some of the finest food dining experiences in the area right on your doorstep.
From intimate country pubs to award-winning restaurants, each offers you hearty cuisine with stunning menus. Take your pick from mouth-watering gastropub food using only the freshest, seasonal, and locally-sourced produce or experience the succulent, locally-caught, South Devon seafood and shellfish.
Close to home in Bovisand Harbour’s immediate surroundings, you’ll find two of Wembury’s best-known country pubs. Just a 10-minute drive or a 35-minute countryside walk away, The Mussel Inn in Down Thomas offers wonderful South Hams views and a fine selection of wines and beers. And down the coast in Heybrook Bay, The Eddystone Inn is the ideal spot to enjoy dramatic sea views, fine food, and a choice of local ciders – the perfect respite after the 2-mile South West Coast Path walk perhaps.
Slightly further afield, and this magnificent area of the South Hams has some real hidden gems to discover. The Crabshell Inn in Kingsbridge is a sun-drenched, waterside eatery famed for its seafood and pizza menu – perfect for early even summer dining. And with its seafood-only menu, The Oyster Shack in Bigbury serves up some of the best quality, sustainably-caught, and freshly prepared seafood in South Devon.
On the southern edge of Dartmoor in the village of Ugborough, The Anchor Inn has all the hallmarks of a traditional, country pub serving a locally-sourced menu, whether it’s surf or turf. The Rose and Crown in Yealmpton offers an elegantly stylish interior and an exceptional menu of taste bud-tingling pub gastronomy. And in the pretty village of Noss Mayo, The Ship Inn overlooks Noss Creek on the edge of the River Yealm and features delicious bar and full à la carte menus alongside an excellent range of regional and local wines and beers.
Whatever your taste or impulses desire, the South Hams has the perfect dish and a glass of whatever takes your fancy waiting for you. And, of course, the Bovisand Harbour Concierge Club Service can make all your reservations for you.
