We took refuge on a cold, rainy day at The Beaver Inn. What a delightful discovery. The food was delicious. We tried the soup of the day which was a roasted capsicum (full of flavor and served with a really good baguette). Then had fish pie (scrumptious) and finished with sticky toffee pudding (yum). Friendly pub. They showcase local produce.

We drove here yesterday to this lovely coastal village and met a lovely couple who told us about this pub and said its a must! Live open mic night on a Sunday night. It's unbelievable! So welcoming the locals are beyond friendly the atmosphere is unreal! It was packed out but everyone moved up to Accommodate us with no fuss. Everyone was joining in with the singing people of all ages enjoying the vibe together. Steve is the manager extremely polite as we're his amazing staff all worked so hard to keeping the drinks flowing. Perfect pub right by the sea. Pool table clean modern toilets – superb! Best 1st night of our holiday x

Late Nov' 2023: Great pub out of season. Enjoyed a nice pint of Proper Job + Scampi & Chips, while enjoying the views from the restaurant over looking the Estuary.

This was the nicest pub we went to on our North Devon break. The staff were lovely, great vibe in the pub with a spectacular view too. The portions are maybe a little small but the food is affordable and the quality amazing. The vegetarian sausages are the best I've had.

The atmosphere was second to none with a real buzz about the place and live music (shanty band) playing. The starters were unreal with the Manchego fries and the pork belly scratchings being a highlight. The main was a slight let down with the burger being a little dry for me and my wife but overall really good and would go again. In summer it has a lovely terrace overlooking the water.
