E TA left this review about Admiral MacBride

A single room seafront pub, dating from the 18th Century. The floor is timber, the windows at the front once overlooked the harbour but development has now got in the way. There is a brick hearth set into the original stone chimney and a large tv on the chimney breast. The staff weren’t particularly welcoming, and there wasn’t much of a local feel to it, just a few elderly and quite annoying tourists making a fuss over nothing. There is a gaming machine and a juke box. Food is ready-made burgers, pizzas and other junk. Two ales on, Dartmoor Jail Ale and Salcombe Seahorse, both in very poor condition. Not sure I’d rush back.

Thatchers on tap did me. Friendly, good cross-section of punters, fun selection of pre-Beatles music and a roaring fire on a November dusk. Pretty good ....

A pleasant single room pub right on the harbour, with a friendly but touristy feel to it. Promised real ales but disappointed to find three handpumps without even a reversed clip on any of them. Settled on half a Scrumpy Jack. I remember coming here with friends about 8 years ago, and having a late drink with the then landlord and landlady, who delighted in showing us round the immaculately tiled toilets which they'd just had done. The gents is still immaculately tiled, and if they had some proper beer I would be happy to use them.
