About the Start Bay Inn

We have been welcoming customers since 1977 and take great pride in the fabulous reputation we have sustained and the high quality of our superb seafood, local specialties and well kept bar.

The Inn dates back to the 14th Century when it was known as the Fisherman’s Arms and was used by the local fishermen who worked off the village beach.

We strive to source local fresh seafood wherever possible and try to use as much as we can from Start Bay.

We use our boat, DH92, as often as we can for scallops, crab, lobster and fish, and launch directly from the beach in front of the pub.  This year could have its challenges as a few stormy winters have left us with a lack of shingle

If we cannot use our boat we will buy from local fishermen from Beesands and Dartmouth. We will endeavour to moor the boat off shore if possible so we can carry on as usual, weather permitting. We will continue to prep the seafood our selves and buy live and fresh produce from our trusted suppliers.

Our local suppliers include...

  • Plymouth and Brixham fish markets
  • Local fishermen
  • Mike’s Smokehouse
  • Durrants Butchers
  • Devon Chunks Pies
  • Tom's Pies
  • Mr Sams
  • Otter Brewery
  • Heron Valley
  • Sharpham
  • Devonia Spring water
  • TiAmo Coffee
  • Last Course Pattiserie
  • Salcombe Dairy

 

We hope you enjoy the experience.

Gail, Clair and Stuart, and all at the Start Bay Inn.
