Went in today and bit confused. So many staff on, not knowing what prices are, but it didn't matter what I paid. I will say it was just like my mum used to make it. Beautiful. Be back for more. Thank you

Very expensive latte in a cup for £2.50. Luke warm. Thought it was strange as locals used to visit it was empty. If they want locals in winter we won't pay that for a cup. Won't be visiting again.

Went here for a breakfast whilst down for a family wedding. Service was atrocious and slow despite at least 5 members of staff being on. Orders got brought out to the wrong tables at least 5 times while we were there, despite there only being about 6 tables occupied during our time. Because of the mistakes made with previous orders...

We were in Torquay for a few days and took a trip into Paignton to go to the pier. We were after some Fish and Chips to eat on the sea front/pier. We came across this place, and thought it looked like an ideal place for fish and chips....how wrong we were!! We ordered fish and chips plus sausage and... More

We were looking forward to some traditional Fish and chips. What we got was frozen pre-packed catering Fish and chips. Yes it was freshly cooked for us but if I had wanted this sort of fish I would have at least bought Birds eye and cooked it myself!! This was bought from the Pier on the sea side what are... More

Popped in here for a cream tea. A very friendly welcome from the new owner but would advise not microwaving the scones! HOwever we returned the next day and who could say no to a fish finger sandwich. The cheesy chips were amazing too. Good luck to the new owner hope you have a successful season.

Visited today for lunch, which was OK. I had a cheeseburger and chips, which was greasy but OK. It was sold as 'homemade beef burger' but was clearly just one of those standard, grey catering burgers. Glass given for our drinks were dirty, so drank from the cans. Staff were friendly however, location good with sea views. As someone else... More
