Went in about a month ago. Girl with dyed hair serving drinks at table was rude. I am a local and will not go in again.

This is a lovely small old style pub. Up a side street right near harbour. Pool table and basket meals available throughout day. Meals not served after 6 at time we were there. The owner so lovely he recommended a few other places for us...to book for an evening meal. We went back next day for lunch. Big portions and good quality food. Basket meals 2 for £12. Not a huge menu things like faggots and mash. Huge burger and baguettes and chips and selection of pies etc. All freshly cooked and very tasty. Made us feel so welcome. Clean toilets and just a great place. Bt sports as well. Sort of pub I'd like to just sit all afternoon and get pickled hahaha.More

Booked at last minute, they stopped serving food about 6pm so we went in just before. It was a lovely traditional pub which was dog friendly. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The menu was basic but very reasonably priced. The food itself was not...exactly high quality but it reflected the price and it was all eaten. I would recommend for a visit if in the area.More

What a find. A pub that is a pub. The two ladies behind the bar Courtney and Leah excel in customer service. All regulations in these strange times are adhered to in the most polite way not military like in other places. A truly welcoming...place. Totally clean. Fabulous venue for live music as well. Pity it was our last night in Torquay. Best pink gin around.More

Visited today for drinks and the bar tender was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Even though he was serving on his own, he acknowledged everyone that came in and showed them to a table while serving other customers which was pretty impressive....Would highly recommend and when in torquay again will visit again.More

It doesn't look much from the outside, and when the live music is on I wouldn't stay long, but we went for the beer and it did not disappoint. Had two good early evening sessions in there.
