The Crab Shed is the closest restaurant to The Treehouse Salcombe, just a beautiful short 15-minute walk alongside Batson Creek. The restaurant is perched on the water’s edge close to their very own Crab Factory, where all the crab meat, fish and shellfish is hand-picked; straight from the fishing boats that operate from The Fish Quay.

Our personal favourite, with a shabby sheek feel in the Beach Hut style Restaurant, its got a relaxed atmosphere with its beach-style décor; driftwood panels, fishing nets in the rafters and hanging bulbs. Excellent no matter what time of day; Breakfast, Lunch or Supper. I’ve recommended this brilliant restaurant with the most delicious fresh fish seafood dishes to lots of guests and no ones been disappointed. The view is outstanding and it’s a perfect place to have a long walk on the beach, either before or after supper. MUST BOOK, gets very booked up in peak periods.

They are a tiny pub with a huge heart, a reputation for wholesome food where they take localness to the limits. They’re nothing fancy and reassuringly pubby, but without a doubt their English pub food collides with French auberge cuisine. During July and August on the terrace they do great BBQ Paella or burgers on the terrace. It’s a great trip on the water if you also fancy hiring a boat.

Certainly worth the trip to the spectacular Noss Mayo. Its an award winning waterside pub, which has been beautifully renovated using reclaimed materials, English oak, local stone. The style is strong yet simple, spacious yet cosy; it feels like a proper English pub.

There is always an electric atmosphere in the evening, especially as most Saturday nights throughout the year there is a live band and lots of dancing. The large sumptuous sofas inside are ideal for watching any sport of interest to you on state of the art wide screen T.V’s. We personally love having their Sea Food Sharing Platter with a group of friends and if your feeling naughty the waffles pretty irresistible.
