A busy pub, we had to wait to get a table, but it was worth it. There are games to play if you choose and a friendly atmosphere. The food is very good quality pub food.

We dropped in here for a pint late afternoon on a Thursday with a view to possibly dining later. Unfortunately for us, the earliest they could seat us was 8:30pm so we had to make do with just a drink on this occasion. No worries as they say as this was Mena Dhu stout, a favourite with us both.

Dear GrumpsDC I'm so sorry you found yourself a victim of our own success - we find it hard as well when we just can't find people a table to eat with us, which is why I urge anyone reading these reviews and wanting to dine with us to book in advance. I promise you won't regret it! Very best... More

Great pub serving quality beer. Hugely attentive and talkative staff(Caitlin very good) who couldn't have done more for us. Sunday food menu was great and food itself was served promptly and was very tasty. The pub to go to in Salcombe.

Arrived without reservation and were warmly welcomed. Told we might have to wait a while, but waiter (Sam) managed to get us in quite quickly. Food (fish dishes by choice) were excellent. Not overly expensive. Great way to spend my birthday evening.

Warm welcome and very efficient service. Fully booked even on a Monday evening in May. I had sea bass and my wife a steak. Both were excellent as was the beer.

Settled for the beef which came within 5 minutes, two lovely thick slices with gravy and three roast spuds and a proper Yorkshire pud. Carrots,cabbage, swede and a good helping of cauliflower cheese for... More

You will find the Victoria Inn in the middle of Salcombe, on Fore Street, opposite a small parking area (you're lucky if you find a space). Very cosy pub, with separate bar and restaurant areas, and a garden in the back. Good quality food, much better than the standard pub fare. A selection of great beers and the usual wines... More

Description
The Victoria Inn has been run by Tim & Liz Hore since 2008. We pride ourselves on being a 'Traditional Pub, with Traditional Values'.

It has this year (2014) been awarded the Taste of the West Gold Award - awarded for locality of produce used, ambiance and high standards of service. We are the only pub in the South Hams to hold this prestigious award. National finalists In Licensee of the Year, finalists in Devon Life Family Friendly Dining Establishment as well as previous Fish & Chip award finalists.

We welcome children with their own menu selection of home cooked food and dogs with their own Al a Bark menu!

Bookings to eat with us are advised as we get extremely busy and hate to disappoint customers.
