Friendly staff, good food and good beer with a nice relaxing atmosphere. I guess if the pub has been around for 477 years, it must be doing something right!

We went to this very old pub for a meal and a few drinks. Lovely meal served by a friendly waitress. Reasonable and traditional in style as you would expect from the oldest pub in Torquay.It is quirky and quite small but this adds to the feeling of being aboard ship...with lots of wood etc. The live music was fun...

I love this oldy world pub, and allways visit. They have a tremendous restaurant and the place is very popular, never any hooligans here. Also the beer is well maintained and a good selection, spacious dining area, and a good hideaway by the harbour...

Good pub food, resonably priced, comfortable seating and atmosphere. Not a bad selection of non English beers, this could and should be improved. Have been there twice now in as many years and the food is still good.

The restauant / pub was recommended and on our last eveing we decided to visit this hdden, but quaint pub and restaurant. Hidden up a side street just yards from the town centre shopping area. I would recommend the fish crumble special (very tasty and filling). Mine Host and waitress were very friendly and most helpful.

Yet another pub we came to whilst on our jaunt around Torquay. Off one of the streets in the town centre. Staff were very welcoming and we had a couple of decent pints.Very cosy and although not a big establishment there was enough room to get round.

This is a fantastic pub full of character. Friendly staff and locals. Staff so friendly and helpful. Great steak and good helpings. Restaurant were happy to stay open for us even after it normally closed. Great for live music - great band played on the Sunday evening when we visited. Even fresh food was passed around the pub late in... More

Pub with a terrific ambiance and a great selection of ales. Two Butcombe beers to choose from, Jail something and the wonderful Doom Bar. The low ceiling and painted beams transport you back in time. Shared photos with Americans who said it looked right out of a movie. Highly recommended.
