Popped in for some lunch and got the pleasant surprise of an excellent Carvery Lunch, couldn't fault the food or service, especially at only £5.95 per head. Staff were great, very friendly, food a wonderful surprise and excellent! Wish they had a bar in Edinburgh

Weekends they have great live bands, food is good and a great atmosphere. Bar staff are great always visit this pub when I go to paignton. You wont be disappointed. All age groups attend this pub. Not to leave out the security, they do a good job aswell as the cooks.

Just a stones throw from our accommodation, this place had very friendly staff and the food was good. The seating area at the front was a little sun trap and we visited this place a couple of time a day. They play excellent live music in the evenings and we found this a friendly place to relax. A little bit... More

The food is good too I've heard although I have never been for a meal. I usually go for the live music which is always great,... More

My husband and my 3 and 5 yr-olds had dinner here when we were visiting Paignton on a long weekend holiday. It was nice to have a pint outside while my kids played on their playground in front. However, the food and beer were terrible. We didn't care for their beer selection on draught and the ribs and pizza had... More
