Summary

“The husband catches it and the wife cooks it” at this seaside shack, “in a fantastic location on Teignmouth’s back beach” (“get a seat on the terrace for a great sunset”). “The catch from the owner’s fishing boats is exceptional” and “doesn’t get any fresher”“the crab is so good!!!!!” – and “you’re by the water, and it smells amazing”. (“The only problem is getting a table” and “they do observe the time allocation rather religiously...”)

Summary

“Go hungry” when you visit this family-run beachside shack, which serves “the best seafood for miles around”, and has “a fantastic setting on Teignmouth’s back beach”. “Don’t just think about rocking up – it’s so difficult to get a table, but worth it if you do!” (“Hopefully the new terrace will end the nightmare of having to book so far in advance.”)

Summary

Fish comes “straight off the boat into the kitchen” at this “busy” but “relaxed” family-run beachside shack; it’s “really popular with locals and tourists”, though... “half the battle is getting a table”.

Summary

“Seafood doesn’t get any fresher” than at this beachside shack, where “Mrs runs the shack, Mr catches the crabs”; book early though – “over a four week period, I found it impossible to get a table on any night at all!”

"Funky waterfront location serves carefully sourced local seafood accompanied by well-chosen wines. Lobster roll is tasty as are fillets of various fish. Self-help on the seasoning side. Local beer also."
