The oldest pub in Torquay is full of character, keeps beers well & is worth a visit. We know people who have had good meals here too.

We were looking for a local pub which was open and allowed dogs inside, just so we could have some lunch. This place was a pleasant surprise. We weren't expecting anything fantastic from the look of the place from the outside, but the food was delicious and the staff were friendly and welcoming.

We had lunch here a few weeks ago on Saturday and it was so good, so we went back again today for lunch, it was lovely food. We had toasted ham & cheese sandwiches, jacket pot with brie, bacon and cranberry (although there was no cranberry today, but didn't think of it until we had left!) great service.
