We have recently been away on holiday. Whilst in Devon we visited this pub for dinner. On arrival we were told that the kitchen was closing very soon and we were told if you want food order now. The bar staff didn't mention any specials that were on offer, and seemed uninterested. We put it down to the fact it... More

We were treated to a meal at the Babbacombe Inn while visiting Torquay for a few days. Great place to go. They were very happy to accommodate the family and my Guide Dog without any hassle at all. My Aunt Anne and Uncle Jim are regulars here and it was easy to see why. A great unpretentious menu with a... More

Great position with outdoor seating overlooking the downs. Very ordinary pub food. Vegetarian in our party had the vegetable curry and it was the best meal - very spicy and tasty. Cajun chicken was dry and not spicy. Fish and chips was passable but how can they compete with Hanbury's - so unfair. Wine was disgusting. A lot of people... More
