Extremely welcoming! We went for drinks and the Head Chef (Gareth) really made us feel welcomed and gave us recommendations on the local area and specific ales my dad might enjoy. Would definitely recommend!... See MoreSee Less

Delicious food and great service. What more can one say? Excellent!
By the way, they are very dog friendly and there was no issue with my husband’s guide dog. In fact we noticed they have been raising money for a guide dog puppy. Sx

What a great time, it was our first time to the Tradesman Arm’s as we are newly local and we will be going back again soon. It was a great mixture of locals and tourists in the bar and restaurant.
The food tasted exceptional and served well. It was a hot day and I was still tempted by the Steak and Ale pie... glad I did, it is the best pie ever, so much tender steak pieces and a great pastry on top.
My partner had the special being mussels as did many others, so a messy time was had by all.
Dogs are very welcome, wished we had of taken ours now but we thought it too hot, they would have made many friends....
Service was excellent at the bar and in the restaurant too, a lovely country pub doing excellent local food with a good atmosphere.

Bluey the Budgie was made very welcome and his ickle bottle was filled with water. He sat happily chatting away as we tucked into a fabulous roast beef lunch with all the trimmings, followed by their scrummylicious ice cream 🍨. Warm friendly happy atmosphere serving local produce with a smile and sense of humour. Highly recommend this lovely pub, it’s immaculate ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️... See MoreSee Less

Mysig B&B i traditionell stil. Nära mycket vackra ställen i Devon men ändå avskilt. Puben är trevlig med mycket god mat. Gästvänlig personal. Hade rummet över pubens bar och isoleringen var inte så bra därför kunde det vara störande under sen kvällen med sorlet nedifrån.... See MoreSee Less

If you want to experience the quintessential English B&B pub, in a gorgeous picture postcard village location, put The Tradesmans Arms at the very top of your list. It has everything. Cathy and her team are wonderful. The food is excellent too! If you are going to stay overnight, request the room under the thatched roof. It's smallish but lovely... See MoreSee Less

We have returned to Stokenham for a second year for a week's holiday. Before we left home we booked to have a meal here. We weren't dissappointed- the food, hospitality & welcome was brilliant. We had Salcombe crab followed by a huge steak & ale pie & battered fish & chips with homemade tartare sauce. Was scrummy. Pudding was 3 scoops of totally delicious ice cream. Totally yummy & definitely looking forward to our next meal on Thursday. Thank you all for a great evening.... See MoreSee Less

Ten of us went here for our Christmas lunch & they went above & beyond to cater for me as the only vegan, researching vegan foods, making a menu of three starters, three mains & three deserts for me to choose from beforehand, Gareth the chief really did himself proud..the food was absolutely delicious!!!!! (As was everyone elses food) 😀 So so good I will def recommend to vegan friends to going here as many pubs & restaurants do not bother to even try to accommodate a vegan customer, hope this inspires you to have vegan options on your menu all the time, non vegans & vegetarians would love it also. 🙂 Thanks so much for making me feel welcome.x...

The Tradesmans Arms

A little cracker of a pub, 14th­ century, part­ thatched and two miles from the sea. Prop up the bar, bring the dogs, tuck into the fabulous food; head chef Kris Jury and his team are making a splash in remotest Devon, using fresh local produce. Formerly a brewhouse with three cottages, the pub stands in a sleepy village near Slapton Sands. Inside, find charmingly rustic dark ­beams and slate­ floors and outside, a beer garden with lush countryside views. Superior malt whiskies, Otter and Tribute ales, an extensive wine list to suit all pockets, and a homemade pie with a beautiful glaze on its puff pastry lid. They also have a children’s menu.

Close to Slapton Sands, a little inn for walkers, weary beach combers and lovers of seasonal food. Sail upstairs for a great night’s sleep

A little cracker of a pub, 14th-century, part-thatched and two miles from the sea. Prop up the bar, bring the dogs, tuck into the fabulous food; head chef Kris Jury and his team are making a splash in remotest Devon, using fresh local produce, making seasonal changes to the menu. Formerly a brewhouse with three cottages, the pub stands in a sleepy village near Slapton Sands and takes its name from the tradesmen who trekked the coastal bridle path. Dark-beamed, slate-floored and charmingly rustic, the oldest part has a log-burner, antique tables and inviting bar stools, while the more hushed, more modern and slightly elevated dining room is red pattern-carpeted and dotted with gilt framed pictures. Outside: a beer garden with lush countryside views. Reasons to be here: superior malt whiskies, Otter and Tribute ales, top-notch breakfasts, an extensive wine list to suit all pockets, and a homemade pie with a beautiful glaze on its puff pastry lid. They also have a children’s menu, and do a great vegetarian option. Cathy and her husband have now introduced four bedrooms with super bathrooms upstairs, the two at the front the biggest and the best.
