The staff were all very pleasant and happy. They were keen to impress and serve. Well done. The service was quick and everyone looked after us. There was good supervision and a great buzz around the restaurant.

Went for lunch today at the Winking Prawn, before a visit to Overbeck’s nearby. It’s regatta week in Salcombe, so we expected it to be busy as it is a popular spot, however we found a table indoors straight away. The food was ok but...More
