Went for basic pub grub and that's what we got and it was very nice. Criticisms are more along the route of advice. The plates the food was served on were not hot enough and there was a delay getting the puddings. We also had coffee, but investing in a coffee machine would improve this service massively.

We called into the pub on a number of ocassions during our weeks stay at the nearby Manor House apartments. The landlord and landlady were both very friendly and welcoming. We didn't eat on any visit but the food being served looked very appetising. The pub was busy on most visits, seems very popular with locals for both drinks and... More

The food here is nice, and the service is really friendly. When we came it was a shame they forgot some things e.g cutlery, some people's food came out at different times to others, but on the whole it was nice.

I love this pub since the new owners took hold of it and transformed it into a cool and unusual place, to hang out in with a beer or to have a lovely lunch. Really recommend it as one of Torquay's more hidden gems.

The review by the guy with the boisterous family and the follow up reviews made me want to go see for myself. Fantastic food, great environment, can't fault the place. Plenty of space really nicely laid out. At least three staff behind the bar on hand every time I looked. This place should be far higher up the ratings than... More

I used to come here years ago, but hadn't visited in a long time after a decline in standards. I heard there were new proprietors and that things had changed dramatically for the better.... so decided to give it a go. I was not disappointed! On entering, I could see that the place has been given a complete makeover. It... More
