Harden's survey result
“Seafood served as it should be: it couldn’t be fresher coming off the boat on the Back Beach”, wins universal acclaim for this “fun, if not particularly smart place”. A change of ownership has brought “a wider choice of fish” but thankfully no compromise on quality – and “it’s still as difficult as ever to get a table without booking 2 weeks ahead...”.
“Unbelievably fresh seafood” (“an incredible treat for crab lovers…”, “tasty lobster roll”, “fillets of various fish”) are “caught daily by local trawlers” and “delivered straight from boat to plate in hours” at this “funky waterfront location”. “A lively shack tucked away on the back beach”, there’s “nothing fancy about it”, but service is “with a smile” and “the only problem is getting a table”.
“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...”)
“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.”)

"Freshest of fresh seafood, simply prepared and served by friendly staff. Lovely location on the estuary beach but a small building so necessary to book ahead as it deservedly popular."
