We had a fantastic family meal, great quality food at good prices. They have the whole COVID setup done perfectly too.

Amazing location. Very friendly staff. Good COVID-19 precautions - including putting on rubber gloves when clearing tables. Impressive. One minor blip... we were reminded the table was wanted shortly for the next sitting when we’d been patiently waiting for some time to place a desert order. But this seemed to be accepted with a friendly smile when we pointed this out. Would highly recommend, but expect the Bill to reflect the location.

The Winking Prawn never fails to deliver whether it’s a lovely frothy coffee you want, delicious cooked breakfast or freshly caught fish, it’s a destination venue, the quality is always exceptional and the service super friendly and efficient.... a firm favourite of ours and one not to be missed !

We absolutely loved having dinner with you this week! We felt really safe, well cared for and the food was absolutely incredible. We’ve only had lunches with you previously. Sadly we live in Bristol otherwise we’d be in all the time but look forward to visiting again when we are back in salcombe. Thank you all so much!

Great food and service. really helpful team who really looked after us. Atmosphere only marked down slightly due to other guests with older children dressing up and standing around our table whilst we ate
