Returning to Appledore after 10 years we decided, for old times sake, to visit The Beaver for lunch and what a delight it turned out to be. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was first class. The scallops in particular were of the highest quality and I am positive I could taste the seawater in... More

The Beaver in is situated in Irsha Street at the end of Appledore and overlooks the estuary and Instow. Its a friendly pub with equally friendly bar staff and is a good to sit outside during the summer/warmer months. We didn't eat there but there is a good pub menu and specials to choose from but certainly worth a visit.... More

My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to get a seat here, as it was the only place open on New Year. We had a veggie burger and the spicy burger .... And it was spicy haha. They have Doombar and burgers .... Happy 2017 :)

What a brilliant family run pub and restaurant. We have visited The Beaver for years and always had a warm welcome and excellent food, beautifully prepared and presented. The best locally run pub by far in Appledore. Cant recommend highly enough

This is a lovely pub with great food, entertainment and place for locals to congregate. Found the food, service and price to be excellent. If in Appledore, North Devon don't miss!

A very busy night in the restaurant area, but we were met and seated very quickly, we were placed in the "snug" a small room next to the dining area with a large round window. Perfect for conversation and peace. Two of the party had chicken, exactly how they wanted it, I had rabbit, the first time for a long... More

I spent a week in Appledore. Spent most evenings in the Beaver. Atmosphere and staff excellent. Beer was very good and I had four meals there,all were excellent. Locally caught fish. Could not fault the staff, always very helpful and pleasant. Would recommend it to my friends. Will definitely be going back.

Dined at Beaver on two occasions. First for jazz night, very good evening, fish pie excellent. Second time we had curry and unexpectedly joined in the quiz, good fun. Curry was tasty, plenty of it, had cheese board to finish, interesting variety of cheeses. We came last in quiz, but hey ho, good night!!
