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.

The Victoria is in prime position on the seafront in this picturesque Devon village. The young staff are bright, friendly and welcoming for lunchtime visitors with children and dogs; we had both.

This is traditional no frills pub food. Two of the humans enjoyed a Cornish pasty which would have passed scrutiny in the neighbouring county and two of us chose the soup of the day which was served with chunks of rustic granary bread. The dog was very happy with the pg's ear off the 'A la Bark' menu and with the free treats offered by the staff in exchange for a well presented paw or two.

Being a good country pub, there was a full range of beer and cider on offer, including exotically named local brews which would have been good to explore if we hadn't been driving through the perilous South Hams lanes.

The only negative is that parking can be a nightmare. We found the last space in the car park opposite the pub but our daughter was in orbit around the village for several minutes before finding a space and arrived at The Victoria unusually stressed. Hard to imagine how it is in the height of summer.

Dear cageswood
Thank you so much for visiting the Vic & we are delighted you had such a great time with us. Your hugely positive comments are appreciated by the entire team. There’s no doubt parking is challenging in Salcombe and the busier it is, then yes, it’s not easy - but that can be said about so many beautiful tourist areas in the West Country. However, we’re glad to see that you found the effort so worthwhile.
We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon,
Warmest wishes,
Liz, Tim and all the award winning #TeamVic

Arrived here mid-afternoon on a Sunday and was gutted to find that the roast lunch/dinner had finished at 3 o’clock (no complaints about that) so my wife had a cream tea while I had a superb sea fish platter. Log fires, real ale, happy days! Highly recommended.

We were only going in for a coffee but it was so charming inside with the fire burning and the charactor that we decided to stay for lunch.
The cornish pasty and chips was brilliant and really good value for money
