An extensive pub at the end of the high street, this has a traditional feel to it and is somewhat less food focussed than some of the other pubs around.

There are two bars, each with their own separate entrance. The right hand bar which is known as the Ship�s Bar has parquet wood flooring and is designed to attract a younger clientele with rather loud music and a pool table. The Lounge Bar to the left is all together much cosier with carpeting on the floor, beams on the ceiling, white plasterwork on the walls and some wood panelling lower down. There was a brick fireplace off to the left and plenty of horse brasses around as well as old black and white pictures of the pub and the town in days gone by and some more modern artwork that was for sale. A restaurant area was further off to the left although we didn�t investigate this.

There is a small patio area next to the pub on the right, although it doesn�t have quite the same outlook to the estuary as some of the other venues nearby. Usefully there is a serving hatch from here directly in to the bar, although on the afternoon of our visit this was unfortunately not in use.

Beers on tap were Young�s Special, Otter Ale, Otter Bitter and Courage Best. Ciders were Symonds Founders Reserve and Weston�s Old Rosie.

Good selection of beer and cider - I went for the Westons Old Rosie (cider) good stuff but strong 7%! Food was normal pub grub and eneviable oven ready chips. The staff were friendly enough but the locals a bit hostile - whinging that it was more like restaurant than a pub. Well keep it as just a pub and you'd have one less drinking hole in Salcombe

The Fortesque Inn is a nice white fronted pub tucked away in a quieter back street of Salcombe but still only a short distance from the sea. Fairly old place dating back allegedly to the early 18th century and one of the two aforementioned bars used to be stables apparently. I chose the olde style original bar with all its memorabilia and photographs and found it a very pleasant place for a pint , which was a very decent pint of Otter Ale.

Food been going downhill for years. Used to eat there several times during fortnights holiday, this year ate there once. Quantity and quality down year on year, prices rise. Real ale kept well. Don't use lounge, too cramped, food orientated, full of rich yachting types devoid of manners.

Went one Friday night a few weeks ago and it was heaving (live band playing). Always worth a visit for a few beers when in Salcombe.
