We had a really delicious meal here - hot, perfectly cooked, really tasty. And the service was fast and friendly. It is a cozy pub with low ceiling and no view at all but quirky and inviting.

Went here with friends. We were looking around Torquay trying to find a decent restaurant. Stumbled across this gem. I went here about 25 years ago and has changed a lot with the added food menu. Really enjoyable, good food. Wanted to stay longer after meal but no spare seating in pub area as it is so popular. Need to... More

very nice pub and restaurant made to feel very welcome when we arrived by a couple of mature local drinkers who had some tales to tell. They recommended the food so later in the week we ate in the restaurant and the food was very good. They have a fine assortment of ales for a good evenings drink.

We have visited Torquay a number of times but hadn't got round to going to the 'Hole in the wall', until last week. We had pre-booked before we left home to make sure we would get a table ok. We could tell as we entered this was our sort of place, it just had a great feel about it. The... More

Whenever we visit Torquay our first port of call of any evening seems to be the Hole In The Wall if possible. The atmosphere is fantastic with a mix of locals/regulars and visitors to the area. The selection of beers and ales is usually very enticing and the service prompt, polite and helpful.
