The Cricket Inn at Beesands is conveniently located between Kingsbridge and Dartmouth and is set along the South West Coast Path making it a haven for enthusiastic walkers seeking a bite to eat and a thirst quencher. There is also a dog-friendly Blue Flag awarded beach right on their doorstep.
Their award-winning seafood-inspired menu has given them the title of one of the best foodie places in the area, with people coming back year after year to taste the delicious dishes produced by Head Chef Jamie and his team.
If that wasn’t enough, there are 7 newly refurbished, beautifully appointed bedrooms which have been awarded 4 AA Gold stars, 5 with stunning sea views overlooking Start Bay and beyond.
Restaurant and bar
We don’t take it for granted that we are one of the best located restaurants near Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. Our values are all about honest cooking, using the freshest local ingredients to create delicious dishes you’ll remember.
With a state-of-the-art Josper grill stood proudly in the kitchen, we have dishes on offer such as whole roasted fish and juicy steaks, which are cooked to perfection with a delicious smoky flavour and great texture too.
As a pub restaurant just yards from the sea, we’re strong supporters of all things local, from top quality ingredients cooked in the kitchen to our drink suppliers from Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and beyond. Some people refer to food miles but we can actually say ‘food metres’, with crab, mackerel, seabass, hand-dived scallops and lobsters caught right on the doorstep and delivered to our front door every morning.
Our fully stocked bar serves everything from local Salcombe or Dartmouth gin to local fruit juices and Devonia Water which is sourced just a stone’s throw away from us in the neighbouring village. We welcome dogs in our bar area, and in parts of our restaurant too, with dog biscuits and water bowls always on offer to make sure they have as good a time with us as you do.
Thanks to our wonderful setting with panoramic sea views of Start Bay and the lighthouse in the distance, The Cricket Inn is everything you need for a B&B in Kingsbridge.
Recently refurbished, the 7 beautifully appointed bedrooms, 5 with stunning sea views, have been designed in a New England style and are awarded 4 Gold stars by the AA.
Each room offers en-suite facilities with walk-in showers, brand new Smart TV’s, complimentary toiletries and Nespresso machines with complimentary pods. The King-size beds have pocket sprung mattresses, 100% cotton linen and sumptuous feather and down quilts which will be sure to provide the perfect night’s sleep. Our award-winning breakfasts will set you up for the day ahead, whether you have exploring or relaxing on your agenda.
Free WiFi is available, however due to our rural location and position to the sea (and the odd storm or two), our WiFi can sometimes be intermittent, so please don’t rely on it! We regret we do not allow dogs in the bedrooms.
