In a picturesque part of the South Hams, surrounded by walks and wildlife, this time-honoured 14th-century watering hole awaits. In an area teeming with historical stories, folklore of bootlegged rum and smuggled tobacco, the mysterious Mussel Inn takes centre stage. A well-situated stop-off for walkers, the pub also benefits from being a stone's throw from a spectacular stretch of Wembury Beach, and overlooks the rolling hills of Down Thomas.

Stuck for somewhere to impress a large family, a few friends or a special individual? Head to The Mussel and sample a true taste of Devon's natural food sources. For a real amalgamation of coastal taste sensations sample the seafood pasta. This dish comprises an intricate array of shellfish, including fresh scallops from Salcombe, all swimming within lightly salted chowder. Fancy a more traditional take on seafood? Opt for the cod and chips. Delicately fried in a feather-light batter benefiting from the addition of hoppy beer, the fillet arrives moist without added grease. The chef's fish-to-fork attitude towards sourcing produce makes a real difference, transforming classic dishes from bland and beige to bursting with flavour.

Indulge in a luscious amaretto torte for afters, best accompanied by a sweet sherry tipple to remedy a full stomach. Select a wine to accompany eachcourse from an international wine list that includes sparkling wines for special occasions. This well-stocked collection is regularly updated depending on the season and, most importantly, what suits the menu.

The team at The Mussel value the community of returning customers, with whom they have built a close relationship. This loyalty is evidently mutual, with bar staff and locals alike being greeted as old friends. Despite being a top destination for holidaymakers, The Mussel Inn remains well-loved within the neighbourhood.

Additional benefits to boast about include popular barbecues in the summertime, lots of outdoor seating and a function room for private events. You'll leave wishing it was your own local, if it isn't already
