We had a fabulous evening at the Beaver for my sister’s 40th birthday! The staff were absolutely lovely, putting up banners and even arranging a rousing round of happy birthday!
The food was fantastic, the live music was brilliant, an all round wonderful and memorable night, thank you all!

Quiet sunday evening, bar staff too busy organising social life to give much attention to other guests. Fish pie good but signature burger indifferent.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch, we asked for extra gravy that was no problem, service was very good and menu well explained, they didn’t have 2 of the non alcohol lagers I asked for, but maybe it was because of sober October!? But the other options were given. We enjoyed our Roast beef lovely Yorkshire Pudding.

Great food. Great service. Staff very pleasant and helpful.
Sophie was so lovely, very patient with 5 giggling women who was talking to much to decide what to have.
Didn't wait long for our food or drinks.
Deserts were amazing.
Highly recommend

Excellent friendly staff and service. We both had roast dinner that really did taste like a home cooked roast. Food was lovely and plenty of it. Clean and sanitized: had a lovely table looking out over the water. Advisable to book a table as popular. We are here on first day had a lovely fish pie.

The staff that greeted us were polite and efficient. Waiting staff arrived quickly to take our drinks and food orders. Very knowledgeable regarding drinks and food. Freshly cooked starters arrived quickly, main course a decent time after. We did not feel rushed but staff were attentive.

Lovely evening at the Beaver Inn, great location in Appledore. We were given a wonderful table with a great view of the Estuary. The service was very prompt and for example even just a small bottle of Prosecco had an ice bucket. - never been given one before by a pub. The fish special was delicious. All in all a good evening.

Most welcoming staff. Given table with beautiful river view, and served promptly by the waitress who was excellent. Delicious well cooked meal, lovely chilled wine, clean attractive restaurant, great ambience. Good that the emptied plates were cleared quickly. We have been to the bar a number of times but never tested the restaurant. It was great and we look forward to our next visit. We highly recommend try out The Beaver Inn

Ideal location on the edge of the estuary. We both had the roast dinner, 1 pork and 1 beef. Both were delicious, meat very tasty, only downside was I found the roast potatoes to be hard to cut in to. We were seated in a small area at the end of the bar, with only a partial view out, as another table of four were seated directly in front of us.

Overall our dining experience was very good.
