We often choose our restaurants after looking for judgements in Tripadvisor, but not this time. Letting our intuition make the decision it turned out to be a pleasant experience. We tried a fish course that really tasted good together with a bottle of fresh white wine. And in the end a decent price made it even better.

As Americans seeking the best of England, we were told by a cab driver not to miss the Hole In The Wall. It was an excellent pub with very friendly people. The Landlord actually introduced himself to us and made us feel at home. (The way it should be). When traveling in another country, it is fantastic to find a... More

The staff were very professional and the food was lovely and freshly cooked. The menu was varied with something for everyone and... More

We found the Hole in the Wall by accident in our first night in Torquay and enjoyed the meal so much that we went back 2 nights later on my wife's birthday. This is a great little old pub serving a good selection of local real ales. There is music on 2 or 3 times a week - the singer/... More

We had a meal here during our recent visit to Torquay. There is a good choice of food and our choices were very good, well cooked and plenty of it! I chose th 3 fish option from the specials board, which was lovely. We'd eaten here some years ago and it was very busy on that occasion, probably more high... More

Went for a meal in the restaurant I had the duck and my wife the sole both well cooked and I recommend the potatoes in garlic,with a decent bottle of wine the meal came to just over £45 which is about right for the quality. We then retired to the bar area where they had 7 real ales and 3... More

Recommended by our B&B hosts we decided to try. Although we hadn't booked and it was really busy they managed to accommodate us. Great service, recommend the steak. Friendly staff and prompt service.

visited this place last year & was blown away with the friendliness , food, drink, service so I didn't need much convincing to take a visit there again last year. If you only go to one place in torquay make it here.
