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. 

If we cannot use our boat we will buy from local fishermen from Beesands and Dartmouth and from Plymouth and Brixam fish markets. We 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
  • Durrants Butchers
  • Mr Sams
  • Otter Brewery
  • Heron Valley
  • Sharpham
  • South Hams Brewery
  • Devonia Spring water
  • Last Course Pattiserie
  • Salcombe Dairy
  • Devonia Spring Water
  • Salcombe Gin
  • Two Farmers Crisps


We hope you enjoy the experience.

Clair, Gail and all at the Start Bay Inn.
