Whether you fancy perfecting your SUP skills or braving a surfing lesson, it\u0026rsquo;s as easy as stepping on the board and giving it a go.

When the Abbot of Buckfast was given permission to start selling local produce in 1219, a market town was born.

One of those seafood restaurants that has the Blue Chip team crowding to it after work on a sunny day, The Crabshell Inn sits in one of the most stunning settings you\u0026rsquo;ll ever find a restaurant in. Right beside the estuary, it even has mooring for boats, and it\u0026rsquo;s not unusual to see someone arrive via SUP board and step off the water and onto the jetty. Once you\u0026rsquo;re in (however you\u0026rsquo;ve arrived), The Crabshell Inn serves up fresh, local seafood as well as the classic pub favourites.
