The Beaver Inn plays live local up-beat music every Saturday, we host the Marmalade Club (which is essentially an open mic night) every Sunday and on Mondays we host local acoustic artists (and one Monday a month we host North Devon Jazz Club).

We had a lovely meal at the beaver inn. The view was incredible and the staff were really lovely. Great food too and good options for my husband who is a vegan, even vegan chocolate pud. Great to see dogs are welcome in the bar too. Looking forward to returning when we come back to this part of Devon again.

Good menu was limited and first option was not available but nobody told us until we came to order.
Second option for myself (BBQ ribs) was very poor when it arrived - barely any sauce and very dry and over cooked.

Lovely location on the waterfront. Staff were polite and friendly. Good pub grub food. Fish pie was very nice. Very busy with holidaymakers. Also a good place if you just want to have a drink. Very pleasent evening (you get a 2 hour slot for your table).

We had a lovely meal on July 21, just a couple of days after "freedom day" Our experience would have been great in pre covid times, but it was made somewhat more uncomfortable by the lack of mask wearing by the majority of the customers and some of the staff. It seems that the message of "taking personal responsibility" has fallen on deaf ears for visitors and locals alike. Looks like it will be some time yet before we can comfortably resume eating out in indoor settings. Great shame.

Good food and excellent service. We sat upstairs at the far end in our own little nook with a porthole window with a fantastic view across the bay. Will definitely return soon.

Great Sunday lunch with everything home made including the delicious gravy. Puds appear to be homemade too. Delicious relaxing Sunday’s spent here as locals! Evening meals we haven’t had so much success with steak over done twice, vegan options over cooked. However we do tell everyone about their Sunday lunches as they are the best ones around!!! 👍🏻

Lovely meal with great service and a warm welcome. Our dog was made welcome too. Good value for money.
Interior could benefit from a refurb, but a minor issue.

Amazing food definitely try if you find yourself in Appledore. The fresh fish option I had was the best meal I had all holiday, fresh, tasty, freshly cooked and not expensive. Would highly recommend the steaks too, OMG the onion rings and chips are the best x

Cheapest seafood platter for miles around (that we found), good size bowl of mussels, heaps of crab and thick slabs of smoked salmon, 2 large prawns and fantastic sourdough bread - great lunch. Excellent choices for vegan daughter who said sticky ginger tofu was best she had. Massive portions of the small plates (3 for (£15) so don't know why they're called small plates! Lovely staff, very friendly.
This pub has the best views so it doesn't matter that it's a bit shabby inside; foods delicious , staff are smashing and views over the water are unbeatable.

The pub is very nice and service good but unfortunately our fish was not cooked properly as it was a bit see through and the batter very soggy, we were both poorly a few hours later. I did report this but was still charged full price for the fish (£32 for 2 portions) and only a drink each was taken off the bill. The chips were good .....but not worth £16 a portion.
