About Us

Welcome to the award winning Buccaneer Inn in beautiful Babbacombe, Torquay.  Situated in a stunningly beautiful location on the cliff top promenade with far reaching open views across Lyme Bay from both our dining lounge and patio, the Buccaneer is a family run pub where you will always get a warm welcome. Families are catered for and dogs are very welcome too.

We serve three St. Austell brewery cask conditioned ales and a variety of keg beers and ciders, plus a wide range of fine wines, spirits and soft drinks.
Our extensive casual dining menu changes frequently and includes traditional meals made using local produce whenever possible, and we always have specials available including local seafood. We serve generously portioned, great value and quality pub food, and are regularly in the top three rated food pubs in Torquay on Trip advisor.
Come and join us for a meal or just a drink and enjoy our warm hospitality. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Explore Babbacombe

Welcome to Babbacombe Bay on Devon’s English Riviera!  In 1846, Queen Victoria wrote: 'It's a beautiful spot... red cliffs and rocks with wooded hills like Italy and reminding one of a ballet or play where nymphs appear — such rocks and grottoes, with the deepest sea on which there was no ripple.'  Over 150 years later, it still feels the same as you stand and look across the beautiful bay.

The delightful gardens at Babbacombe Downs have attained the prestigious Green Flag award, an international accolade recognising the high environmental standards, excellent visitor facilities and maintenance of the site.
