Just spent a fantastic NYE with friends at the Old Bakery. Restaurant looked beautiful when we arrived with a truly welcoming ambience. Every course of dinner was delicious, with a set menu of Mediterranean, tapas style dishes and a delicious pork main course. The service was friendly, welcoming and efficient throughout the whole evening. We couldn’t have enjoyed our evening more. Thank you .... and happy new year!

This is one of the very few places in Salcombe that offers vegan options. I had a delicious pasta dish with walnut pesto. The starters were yummy too.
The service was exceptional - all of the staff were super friendly and really looked after us and our dogs - they were showered with fuss. There's even a doggy menu. Our dogs lapped up the doggy beer... literally!
I would definitely recommend this place and will definitely go again when next in Salcombe.
My only wish would be to offer a vegan dessert which wasn't sorbet... everything else - spot on.

Popped in to coasters as it was opposite costas so felt it was helping the independent sector. Had a very good filter from Ethiopia roasted by climpson.
What I liked was the staff giving me that taste list which was novel for me and made a difference.
Enjoyed the experience.

The Crabshell is gaining a fine reputation as an eatery of distinction with an increasingly acclaimed menu. The Inn is “child friendly” and children of all ages are very welcome…

What a lovely location, building. It wasn't a good day for staff as new technology so had to go several places to get different item or pay for them in different places. The pizza menu was to die for, it read delicious. I opted for the Spinach and Egg reminiscing to fab Yeti Pizzas Argentiere, days gone by. Sadly not. it was like a Dr Oetker Margarita with an egg and 4 spinach leaves the size of basil leaves - the basil leaves would have given it more flavour. Tried to liven it up with some chilli oil, very fragrant but no kick. V disappointed. Would like to go again and try maybe the deli but will check out what everyone else is eating first.
