Called in for a quiet drink on a recent visit and ended up staying all night. Thursday evenings have a resident singer/guitarist Clive. He was an absolute legend, great guitar playing, singer with some great humour too. Can't say about the food as we'd already eaten but the smells coming from the restaurant were amazing.

A pint of real ale prior to ordering. Very good choice of menu. We were there a number of times at lunchtime during our week in Torquay, opting for sandwiches or home cooked ham egg and chips. Excellent pub food and inexpensive. Well worth a visit. Staff very friendly and efficient.

Fascinating old pub, first built in 1530!, as a Coaching inn, now a pub with a large dining room (seats 70). Helpful servers, good variety, reasonable prices. Good variety of wines by the glass.
