Seating: For social distancing reasons we have opened our car park for seating as well as the tables in the garden so we can all enjoy The Winking Prawn as much as possible. On days when the restaurant is open, we are asking you to wait to be seated and at that stage we can give you a brief run-down of how we are applying the government guidelines. We are offering table service and we have a brand new self-ordering system in place to minimise contact. Once seated, you will be able to scan a QR Code on your disposable menu from your phone this will automatically pull up our online ordering system where you can select your meal or drink and we will bring it to your table. Sound like a plan? We will not be far away for anyone who needs our assistance. Please remember your mask.


Reservations: No need to reserve a table, just turn up & wait to be seated. We will not be offering our evening a la carte menu this summer.

Island Street Bar & Grill

Picture 1.jpg


After Much Thought & Consideration, Island Street Bar & Grill is
“Changing With The Times”

We have been working hard during the lockdown and we believe we have created a new and exciting place to dine and wine in Salcombe. The menu is similar, the bar is no longer, table service is here to stay, live music is on hold, the view is as amazing as ever, your youngsters will love our Kids Menu and dogs on leads are still very welcome.

We will keep you posted by social media, newsletter and on our website once the menu has been tried and tasted alongside the new wine list, which we have thoroughly enjoyed choosing and tasting through lockdown!



We are hoping to open our reservations systems by the middle of April for the reopening in mid May. We will keep you posted via social media and our website. Please DO NOT leave messages on the website regarding reservations as we will NOT be able to reply. We look forward to welcoming you to The Island St. Waterfront, Dine & Wine in the not-too-distant future. We will announce our exact opening date and times soon!

The Cracking Crab

Just a little bit of information for you!

No need to reserve for daytime visits or evenings on the decking. On arrival we will allocate you a table.

We highly recommend you reserve for our dinner menu served in the restaurant. We are not able to take reservations via email and the phone is in constant use, so please visit the website AND reserve online by following the link below.

Reservations: You can now make dinner reservations online. We ask you not to email us or send Facebook messages with your reservation requests as we will not be able to reply or confirm. Thank you for your patience.
