The Start Bay Inn is a thatched-roof, 14th-century inn with seafront patio offering catch-of-the-day seafood and real ales.
The Start Bay Inn
Based in Torcross, South Devon, the Start Bay Inn provides famous fish & chips and seafood specialities.
As a family run business, we use fresh local produce, real & local ales, live & local ciders and friendly customer service to provide the perfect dining experience beside the sea.
The Inn dates back to the 14th century when it was known as The Fisherman's Arms and was used by the local fishermen who worked their fishing boats from the village beach in front of the pub. The Start Bay Inn has been run as a family business since 1977.
We strive to source local fresh seafood wherever possible and try to use as much as we can from Start Bay.
We use our boat, DH92, as often as we can for scallops, crab, lobster and fish, and launch directly from the beach in front of the pub. This year could have its challenges as a few stormy winters have left us with a lack of shingle
If we cannot use our boat we will buy from local fishermen from Beesands and Dartmouth. We will endeavour to moor the boat off shore if possible so we can carry on as usual, weather permitting. We will continue to prep the seafood our selves and buy live and fresh produce from our trusted suppliers.
Our local suppliers include...
- Plymouth and Brixham fish markets
- Local fishermen
- Mike’s Smokehouse
- Durrants Butchers
- Devon Chunks Pies.
Please note we do not take bookings. Dogs are more than welcome on our seafront patio, but not inside the pub during food service.
