Supurb Restaurant and Location
"What a treat to find this restaurant. Obviously very popular for fish and seafood lovers and 
we can see why. Excellent food, a real gem. Service excellent with friendly staff."

Simple But Superb
"This pub, situated right by the seawall at Torcross, serves quite simply the best fish that I 
have ever tasted. A choice of a seat off the bar area or in a separate family room is great if children accompany you. The menu, which is not exclusively fish, gives a choice of eight or ten fish dishes, some with fillets served in three sizes. 
Much of the fish is locally caught, covered with an excellent batter and cooked to perfection, with haddock or cod really moist and flaky. 
Fish and chips maybe, but the Start Bay Inn does simple dishes cooked to perfection.
But as there is no booking system, get there early for the 6pm opening. It will be busy, packed 
to the rafters in high season. Enjoy!"

Wonderful Fish
"If you like fish this restaurant is heaven. We have been visiting this place for about ten years, luckily for us it is only about 1 hour drive. If you want to eat in the evening it is best to get there at opening time 6 pm as there is normally a wait for tables if you leave it till about 7. The food is never a disapointment but if you want to try the jumbo cod make sure you are very hungry. My husband sometimes goes for the jumbo portion but then he never gets around to eating the chips. They always have a lovely selection of dishes on the specials board including scallops crab etc. The prices are very reasonable averaging between about £7 & £9 for a main course. We have taken many friends here when we have visitors and they have all been impressed."
