The Millbrook Inn

Kingsbridge, Devon
Pub with rooms

Glorious foodie inn nestled in South Hams, award-winning menus, arrive by boat when the tide's right


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


The tides dominate the Inn’s ebb and flow with many visitors arriving by boat. Voted South West Dining pub of the year 2016/2017, the food makes imaginative use of the very best of local Devon produce, with on-the-doorstep fish and game.

The pub clientele are local, and a lively cross-section of characters include farmers and the wealthy Salcombe set. The new chef team – Dave Gobbett and Iain Dawson – have created menus that showcase exceptional British pub food with particular attention to local produce. Try bubble and squeak, crispy pig’s head croquette, curried cod, or the newly-crowned Devon’s Best Burger – or settle in for their adventurous taster menu. Leave room for an upside down, Singapore Gin sling cake with limoncello.

Your studio suite has a marvellous private terrace overlooking the beer garden and brook. On crowded days from your elevated terrace you’ll see customers jumping the brook to reach the meadow.

The neighbourhood

South Pool sits on the bank of the Kingsbridge Estuary. The clifftop cottages at Prawle or the lighthouse at Start Point are within a five-minute drive. Walk miles along the rugged clifftops, get the ferry to Salcombe or make your own gin at Salcombe Gin Distillery. Water lovers can rent a sailing boat, take a fishing trip, or explore the estuary in a canoe or paddleboard.

Charlie Baker

Tess and Charlie came to Devon to bring up their two girls in a paradise of sea, swimming, surf and (often) sunshine. Charlie is the ocean boy and it’s hard keeping him away from the surfing, stand-up-paddle surfing (SUP), kitesurfing, canoeing and swimming. Tess plays hockey and netball for the Kingsbridge sides, when she’s not busy being a mum.
