We only visited this pub for a drink with some friends before going for a meal elsewhere, but it was a very pleasant meeting place with a warm+welcoming atmosphere. Great selection of ales available and was spoilt for choice!

We ate at the 'Hole in the Wall' three times as part of our weeks holiday in Torquay. Good value and nice food. Recommend you book a table as they do get busy in the summer season.

Staff were very rude and unhelpful. We wanted to book for the next night and got a scornful expression and told to "come at 6 and we might be able to stick you in a corner". Decided not to bother!

We visited The hole in the wall for our evening meal and found the bar and restaurant staff helpful. The restaurant was a lot bigger than I imagined when walking into the oldest pub in Torquay. They had a good selection of food on the menu. I found my meal of pork tenderloin to be excellent and my girlfriends chicken... More

Great little pub tucked away from the crowds. Good atmosphere. Good cider (Devon scrumpy on tap). Nice entertainers and oozing with character. I went here for a pint every night almost.

Those sat at booths at the back were practically penned in. Goodness knows what would have happened if any fracas had occurred - or anything similar. When we ordered a glass of wine we... More

My family and I called here for an evening meal and were not disappointed. I had the Chicken and Rib combo which was excellent as was the rest of the food for the party. We visited this place on Tuesday and were so impressed that we went again on Thursday for more food. Thanks for a great evening.
