Recommended Places to Eat Out: There are a number of really lovely pubs and restaurants to recommend. The places mentioned below have been tried and tested by us. The Dolphin Inn. (Dog friendly) Just a stroll away from the cottage, with good pub food. You may need to reserve a table as it very popular with locals. The Modbury Inn. Run by someone from the village. Mention you are staying with Jerry and Liz in Kingston. Good pub grub! The California Cross Inn. Reliably good food. The garage at California Cross sells the COOK range of foods for coking at home and are excellent. You can also order these on line from COOK. The food is excellent if you want to eat in. The Journeys End Inn. (Dog friendly) This pub is situated in Ringmore, the neighbouring village. The pub offers pub food with a twist. The chef here used to work at the Burgh island hotel and has won awards for his cooking. Booking is essential. The Plantation House Hotel. This is a hotel and restaurant, also in Ermington. It is expensive, but lovely for a special occasion. The Rose and Crown. This pub is in the village of Yealmpton and offers a good menu. The Ship Inn. (Dog friendly) This is at Noss Mayo. This is a lovely pub, situated on the estuary. Please note that the car park is tidal!!!! The Oyster Shack. This is a fish-based restaurant in Aveton Gifford. The food is lovely, but the menu can be limited for non-fish eaters and it isn?t the cheapest place to eat. The Crabshell Inn. Kingsbridge. This is on the river at Kingsbridge. If the weather is warm, it is lovely to sit outside and eat. They serve a lovely breakfast. The Steam Packet. Totnes. This is on the river at Totnes, and again lovely to eat outside in the summer. The White Heart Modbury. Excellent food. The Gastro Bus at Bantham Beach. 07592811277Excellent reviews, burgers, ciabattas, hot dogs and drinks. The Ring Feeder, near California Cross is a new eating place. We haven?t been but several of my friends have and enjoyed it. They serve breakfast as well. The Ring Feeder cafe - In Salcombe, you have the Victoria Inn and the Ferryboat Inn. The Ferryboat Inn has a garden overlooking the estuary. Mothercombe School House is a restaurant, cafe, bar & takeaway located on the stunning Flete Estate, on the edge of Mothecombe beach car park, just a few minutes walk from the wonderful Mothecombe beach, opposite to Wonwell. Tel:01752830552 There is also a Chinese and Indian take away in Modbury. We would recommend booking tables in advance due to the high demand in high season.
