"Fresh from the sea, with stunning views!"

Often described as a hidden gem, The Cricket Inn has built an enviable reputation as one of the best foodie pubs in Kingsbridge, South Devon. Recently awarded Gold in the South West Tourism Awards 2019 for Pub of the Year this seaside inn is situated in the beautiful village of Beesands in the idyllic South Hams, just metres from the beach yet 7 miles from Kingsbridge and 12 miles from Dartmouth.

AA rosette dining, 7 beautifully appointed bedrooms, local ales, fine wines and stunning sea views are just a few things that make this one of the most enjoyable pubs in Kingsbridge, not to mention the cheery welcome from Landlords Nigel and Rachel and the rest of the team. 

Inside the pub you’ll find contemporary interiors with a nautical twist, with photos adorning the walls echoing Beesand’s rich fishing heritage. The award-winning restaurant has sliding doors which open in the summer and the outside seating means you can dine alfresco-style overlooking the sea, sipping your favourite tipple.  

Situated directly on the stunning South West Coast Path, The Cricket offers the ideal base to explore Devon’s beautiful coastline and the perfect resting place to enjoy good food and a refreshing drink in between hiking. Dogs are very welcome in the bar.
