Waterfront pubs near Teignmouth

Hi, I keep my 5.3m Bombard on the Exe, can anyone recommend any other good local pubs which are accessible by boat?

The Turf on the Exe is brilliant as it's accessible at all tides and has its own pontoon.

Does the river Teign have anything similar?

Had lunch at The Ness, Shaldon recently. Decidedly average.

Thanks for your reply- is The Ness easily accessible by boat?

What kinds of tides is it accessible and is there somewhere to leave boat or is an anchor/dinghy job?

Thank you

The only one with a pontoon is Coombe Cellars but it's tidal. Other than that you've got the Newquay and the Ship pubs at Teignmouth but you would have to beach or anchor your rib.
Cheers, Rob.

Thanks Rob, how many hours either side of high tide would you venture up to Coombe Cellars?

My chart doesn't go up as far as the Coombe Cellars in detail- is there a marked channel/ is it quite easy to navigate?

Many thanks

The channel is well marked and you should be ok 2.5hrs either side of high tide. It's best attempted on a rising tide. I have arrived at the pub just as the boat touched the bottom at the end of the pontoon but on a rising tide.
Cheers, Rob.

As Rob says there's nowhere to walk ashore at Shaldon or Teignmouth - not very rib friendly. Coombe Cellars is the place to walk ashore. Possible to beach at Shaldon but I wouldn't. Ness is now very expensive and average, as Mollers said. Ferryboat on the strand served a good pint last time I frequented it and the Clipped cafes is very good.
Why not head into Torbay - not that much further and more options

Years ago I used to go to the Carry arms by rib at Babbacombe, not far to go!

Coombe Cellars and the New Quay pub, decent pint at both.
Hope you have a good weekend.

Beware of rocks in the Teign once you go past Coombe Cellars! Not visible, but hiding in wait for your prop.

If you go further there is the beach cafe at Maidencombe (you can anchor off the beach on a quiet day) or the pub at Babbacombe which has a stone jetty.

There is some great coast just down from you... and your rib can do loads.

teignmouth and river Teign I'd give a miss, although as you come into the Teign on the Shaldon side there are a few pubs in walking distance, one about 100ft from river, but id probably give them a miss. The ones up the top of the estuary are very hard to time it.

maidencombe - café on the beach in the summer

Babbacombe - pub, but pier is private, so really need to drop anchor which is not great

Torquay harbour id recommend, moor up on the visitors pub for a few quid and loads around the harbour

Paignton - not so easy to stop in the harbour, id not bother

Brixham - easy to stop on pontoons, and explore town

Dartmouth - easy to stop on pontoons and explore town

Salcombe - easy to stop on pontoon and explore town

Just outside Salcombee there are a few beaches that have café's I think.

I used to use my 5m rib from Teignmouth and do all of these quite easily. It might cost a few quid to use a pontoon/taxi, but well worth it.

I suggest start at Torquay, as that easy, and the scenery from Teignmouth to Torquay is stunning. Then go for Dartmouth.
