It is very nice and relaxing and friendly pub. The restaurant is at the back, but is nice place, but you can have your meal/s at the bar.

Had a great meal there, fresh lemon sole, with local crab and prawns, I asked if I could have scallops as well and pay the extra, as it was on the starter menu in any case and it was no problem to them, Oh what a delight. loved the place, good selection beers and superb scrumpy, proper job.

Revisited this establishment after two years. Down in Torquay on holiday, looking for some live music with a bit of atmosphere. There was a 60s..70s..singer with more variety as well, who was joined by three other musicians in the second set. Staff were friendly and professional. Atmosphere was excellent for a Sunday night with a wide variety of age groups.... More

Just loved this place, lovely food and good atmosphere. The locals were friendly and although it's off the main drag we would recommend this pub.

This is worth going to for the building alone it may be 14th Century, ( at least part of it). They have good pub food at lunch time and a more formal dining room at night. The place is friendly with an attractive bar and good drinks. It is close to the harbour but sufficiently out of the way not... More

On our weekend away in torquay we fancied a drink. Our hotel manager recommend this pub, we loved it. The food wine and cider were just what we needed, lots of history in this old pub,enjoy it we did.

What a great Pub, some of the Beers on sale I had never heard of. The meals are great and the service very prompt. It's a little difficult to find being tucked away and on a hill but really worth the visit. Friendly people as well. Cheers
