Very helpful staff and a friendly pub, ideally situated with fantastic views across the bay. Usual kind of pub food, fairly priced and tasty. Dogs welcome inside and out. We enjoyed our lunch there today and would recommend to others.

This is a good value pub with great views. Menu is unexciting but hearty. Clean and friendly. What else is there to say?

Amazing in every way. Make sure you go here for food and drinks. Best place to visit in the bay. I recommend the burger with blue cheese washed down with an ale or two. Just brilliant.

We have never had a bad meal and the portion size are great. A favourite of ours are the speciality burgers named after areas of... More

I have lived in Torbay my entire life and the only bad thing that I can say about this place is that it isn't within walking distance of my home!! We wish this pub was at the end of our road.....but then if it were it wouldn't enjoy the amazingly breath taking views I guess. Everything about this pub is... More

Had a lovely meal here. The proprietor was very accommodating and moved the furniture around to allow our group to fit in for Sunday lunch. The food was delicious, I would recommend the prawns. Benches outside allow you to enjoy the sunshine and the glorious views.
