VERY GOOD MEAL

My family and I ate here on two occasions during our week's holiday in Babbacombe. On both occasions the food was very good, and staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great place to eat and drink especially in the Summer where you can enjoy the sun for many hours with the tables and chairs provided outside. We offen order the sizzles as they are very good value for money and enough to keep you satisfied for awhile! Huge bonus the amazing scenery overlooking babbacombe downs, well worth a visit!

Ate here while on holiday, nice staff willing to help, clean and pleasant surroundings and a tree house for the kids to play in while you enjoy the views. Only downside was we felt the children's meals were quite pricey for what the received.

Visited several times and not been disappointed with lunch time or evenings. Dined in the restaurant rather than the bar area - relaxing. Good beer. Good access, parking can be a little tight, but available.

Great atmosphere and the staff very helpful and attentive. Thanks to Jordon - nothing too much trouble made the evening special. Childrens menu varied and appetising. Main menu has a great choice - adequate portions. :-)

Excellent ..try the Sizzling Steak ..it really sizzles!! Lovely Jackets....done in the oven not microwave.....meal in itself served with nice salad and coleslaw. Lovely staff. Nice seating outside too where you get some wonderful views. Never had a problem here, and we visit quite a few times a year.

We called in on a walk to Babbacombe from Torquay; and were lucky enough to get a table, we both had the roast pork, it was delicious, possibly one of the best Sunday lunches we have had. Highly recommended. would recommend booking though!

We had a lovely lunch here today, I chose roast pork, and hubby had roast beef, lots of nicely cooked-meat and fresh vegetables, followed by a banoffe pie and baileys cheesecake, again a nice sized portion beautifully presented.....This was our first visit, but most definitely won't be the last time we visit....small tip, book early as it was incredibly busy...
