The Lighter Inn is a charming restaurant and bar situated on the quay in picturesque Topsham, with delightful views over the estuary of the River Exe. The outdoor seating area provides the ideal spot to enjoy a leisurely summer lunch, while the cosy interior invites visitors to hide away from the blustering winter weather. The Lighter is a vibrant place, being very popular with both locals and visitors. The excellent and varied menu offers a wide selection of dishes at very reasonable prices, together with an extensive, well-priced wine list.

From our window view over the estuary, my partner and I chose a shared starter of field mushrooms in a beautiful and tasty blue cheese sauce. For the main course, I opted for salmon and prawn pie, accompanied by mashed potatoes and green beans. The pie was generously fi lled and cooked to perfection. My partner could not resist the locally sourced thick-cut ham with eggs and fries. Accompanying the food was a perfectly chilled white wine for my partner and a glass of a tangy, dry local cider for myself.

To finish, we both succumbed to temptations from the wonderful dessert menu. My partner opted for a comfortingly old-fashioned sticky jam pudding with custard, while I sampled a tasty selection of local ice cream. The friendly, attentive and helpful staff helped to make it a memorable visit.
