The Beaver Inn is a small traditional pub with an amazing atmosphere and mouth watering menu. We are renowned for our fantastic fish specials and for the friendly service that we offer. Enjoy watching local talent? 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). There is always something fun and exciting happening at The Beaver Inn!

Beautiful location but no close parking. Very good selection of local sea food. Good to see that local young people are being employed but they could use a little extra training

Nice pub with friendly staff and good menu. Sadly some of the specials were off so perhaps we were a bit late. We just happened to be by a noisier table but we enjoyed our supper very much.

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.

The staff were very friendly and attentive, we wanted to sit inside because of the weather, however, no masks were being warn by customers or staff, and no social distancing was apparent.
Food was nice enough and weather wasn't cold enough to put us off sitting outside.

Overall we were very happy, service was great and the food was really good. We were however somewhat disappointed that the only vegan desert option was not available so we all had to decline desert.
