We treated ourselves to an evening meal here and was not in the least disappointed. Both deciding on fish dishes, though there is ample to choose from. Fantastic food. Cooked perfectly and of great value. The trio of fish option went down a real treat. Service provided was brilliant, nothing too much trouble and the staff very smart, in keeping... More

Lovely quirky old fashioned type pub restaurant, very friendly staff and excellent food. Had Sunday roast there recently and have to say it was one of the best in the bay.

We had an extremely good welcome at this restaurant/pub. The proprietor made himself known to the guests and was very friendly with us. All the staff were very pleasant and looked after us very well without being 'over the top'. Definitely recommended.

We were advised to go here for dinner, which turned out to be your average pub dinner, but the prices were that of an expensive and quality meal. I don't think I'd be too far off from saying that I would get the same food from a frozen meal from Iceland!

The Hole In The Wall is billed as Torquay's oldest pub, and as you walk through the door you certainly feel as if you're stepping back in time. The decor consists of the original (listed) cobbled floor, beamed ceilings, nautical memorabilia and antique/antique-style brasses. This all adds to the atmosphere, but can make it a bit dark. We had a... More

Good location and the age is sort of quaint, but the meal was instantly forgettable - neither tasty nor interesting. Staff were pleasant though a little harassed even early in the evening. Having said that , the restaurant was pretty full so someone must like bland food.

We visited and enjoyed good food, a varied choice of drinks and, unexpectedly, entertainment. We had a good meal and the pub accommodated our dog too!!!!!!

Good value for money but not the greatest Sunday lunch I've ever had. Service was great and there was plenty to eat....just a little bland really.

It was a very disappointing evening at the Hole in the Wall - due to the complete lack of customer service and attention from the restaurant staff. None of the restaurant staff took care of us as customers. I had to ask to be given the menu and this was after a 20 minute wait after sitting down. I then... More
