Really nice meal for my wife’s birthday. I have been to the Beaver Inn many times and have never had anything other than a great experience…this was my wife’s first time - and she loved it !
Good food , great service and a really nice chilled environment. What’s not to like ?

We went to the beaver as a family of four. Two adults, two under tens. Lovely pub, friendly staff. Lots of locals enjoying a drink or some dinner.
Great for seafood, meals all very well cooked, staff attentive, lovely atmosphere. Puddings are huge, all home made and taste great. Fast becoming a favourite place to go.

Nice relaxed evening. Service both bar & restaurant excellent. Good Appledore fish pie with Sough dough - rather stale - & excellent salad.
Felt for the price the fish pie could have had more fish in it & no peas.
Would recommend.

First bad meal at the beaver, normally excellent. Perhaps it was because it was a Sunday evening?
Chips, peas & risotto all cool, waitress handled it very well.

Always pur favourite pub and place to eat. You may take this traditional local pub as being the same kind of food found in any pub, but it is some of the best food to be found in the area and there are always loads of options for gluten free, vegetarian and vegan diets. The fish options are amazing

Great atmosphere with friendly staff. Game pie and fish pie was excellent. My son had burger which was very disappointing as very dry and lacked seasoning. Desserts were heaven!
Will definitely book here again when in the area. ThankYou🙂

I went for lunch with my friend. We both had baguettes I had the prawn baguette and my friend had the sausage one, we enjoyed both, the portions were generous. Atmosphere good and staff helpful and friendly. Nice and cosy and warm on a cold day. Would definitely go again.

We were disappointed with the starter menu. Most choices contained fish! We intended on a 3 course but ended up only having 2! The fish was overcooked and very dry. Gammon was lovely. Puddings were OK, except everything is served with ice cream!!

The food at the beaver was excellent, the game poe was perfect, the steak was cooked perfectly. The staff where very good even though it was busy. After the meal a band was playing, very good and not so loud it was overpowering. I have never had a bad meal at the beaver.

First return to The Beaver after a long break. Our meal was every bit as good as we'd remembered from previous visits. Good sized portions of tasty food in a cozy environment right beside the sea. Great!

The food was very disappointing. I ordered the steak which looked bland and the taste confirmed it was bland. My chips were anaemic looking and were undercooked. My husband had the burger which was passable but that was the best that could be said. We spent £60. I left most of my steak and chips and went home hungry.

This was our second visit during the week after we enjoyed the first so much but although the staff were attentive and friendly we did not think the choice of food was varied enough after we had eaten a lot of fish during the week.

Arrived & were promptly shown to table & specials board brought over,
We had chowder halloumi fries fish pie & burger all very good with efficient friendly service.
Only criticism is was asked by bar staff if wanted another drink, I ordered lime & soda it never arrived! By the time I realised I didn’t have it I had finished my meal so didn’t bother to remind them. It also didn’t appear on the bill.

Nice to be in a real pub again. Food was good, portions were massive which was wasted on me.
We arrived 30 min before the time our table was booked. We placed our order ten mins before we were taken to our table so only had to wait ten minutes for our food. It was very busy and the staff were great.

The meals overall were ok. We’ve been coming for 8 years and always preferred the Beaver for its nice mix of meals..nice reasonably priced pub type food and some fancier specials if wanted, but felt it had gone a little over priced and the menu wasn’t as mixed, aired more on the fancy side. One main was £20 and had to be sent back.. still a good place to go and eat but prefer how it used to be.

The Beaver does very good food, definitely a step up from normal pub food, we had Sunday lunch and a meal in the week, the Sunday lunch was delicious and in the week I had perfectly cooked Skate wing which was a real treat, service was efficient and very friendly, no complaints at all, we look forward to returning soon.
