After a pleasant walk across the sand to Burgh Island for a light lunch at The Pilchard Inn we found the pub closed for internal upgrade and a new roof. It was entirely our fault that we didn't check first to see if they were open. Apparently they open again on January 20th. The rating above relates to a previous... 更多
We were staying in Dartmouth in early December and decided to visit the Island which is such a fascinating place. The tide was with us so we walked across the sands with our new puppy and found out that you are not welcome in the Hotel unless you have booked lunch and dressed up for the occasion or you need... 更多
We owned this lovely little pub for 15 years till 2001 when we sold it (and the rest of the Island). During that time we had some of the happiest times of our lives and made literally hundreds of new friends over lots of pints of delicious Palmers IPA. It breaks our hearts to read about the experiences of so... 更多
I don't understand why they bother opening to the unwashed masses that they clearly aren't bothered with. I totally understand that they have a private bar for residents of the hotel that get priority service, but why ignore the queue the other side of the bar? Why have only one barman working and someone else that can only hand out... 更多
We walked across the sand at low tide for a quick pint before lunch. We didn't stay to eat because having walked over the sand in 'wellies' we found you weren't allowed into the main part of the pub unless you changed back into shoes - which we didn't have with us! Beware the steep slope out of the pub... 更多
This tiny pub is part of the Burgh Island estate - we enjoyed a tipple or two here during our stay at the hotel. The local cider is lovely...
We had lunch here after taking the sea tractor over from Bigbury. The choice was very limited - just sanwiches and baguettes and the baguettes we had were of very basic and of indifferent quality,
Lovely venue for a drink next to an open fire with views over the bay as the tide comes in leaving stranded drinkers asking how to get back to the mainland - the answer is roll your trousers up and paddle!! Lucky for us we were staying at the hotel on the island
Lovely Scottish barman served us very politely. The public bar was shut, so we had to use the locals bar, which had about 6 blokes in it. Even sat by the fire! It seems this pub can infuriate or pleasure people jn equal numbers. Maybe it's best visiting in November like us...
We waited for the tide to ebb enough to walk over to this pub. We were met with the bar only for residents and "locals"! So I ignored that and went in as there were other fellow walkers already in there. The inside is quaint but the barman was very abrupt and lacked any social skills! We ordered a drink... 更多
