Having walked around Burgh Island we decided to try The Pilchard Inn for lunch. It is very small though has a good choice of ale. We asked about food and were shown the menu written on a black board with a choice of 3 baguettes. We ordered 3 which were served very quickly as they came from the fridge, presumably... 更多
Stayed at Challaborough and walked the coastal footpath to Burgh Island, somewhere I have always admired and wanted to visit. Only to find the Hotel strictly residents only (fair enough), so walked across the small island, enjoyed the views and wandered back to the Pilchard Inn assuming we would be able to get a pint and nice lunch, sit outside... 更多
Love this little pub so full of Character and always has nice friendly polite bar staff on It's great when the tide comes in cuts you off from the main line but don't fear you can take the sea tractor back over or walk through the water my height came to the top of my legs Great view while enjoying... 更多
Glorious August day, packed beach and a gorgeous spot to have a drink and a light lunch. BUT! Only one barman (very polite throughout and trying hard to keep everyone happy), no food left and a queue out of the door. APPALLING business sense - this should be a hive of activity with happy smiley people serving and happy to... 更多

The reality is a capitalist that bought the island, the Art Deco hotel, tried to remove all rights of way on the public footpaths, and owns the... 更多
Walked over to the island for a drink with the family on a sunny afternoon to be faced with a sign at the pub door saying that only hotel guests and regular locals were allowed in. Looking inside it appeared to be completely empty apart from the staff. Walked back, had a paddle and then went elsewhere.
Superb olde-worlde pub just as you arrive on Burgh Island, having walked across at low tide from Bigbury on Sea. Plenty of thick stone, dark wood and low ceililngs. As the only pub around, it was always going to be busy, but we were served very quickly by a good-humoured bar-man, even when we asked if they did cream teas... 更多
This great little pub will set you back £4 for a pint of Stella and only has one man at the bar, it's very busy with people queuing out the door and after a 20 minute que I finally got to quench my thirst. This place could have students working and serving hot food which would make them a lot... 更多
