Charming pub

We had a drink after our walk before heading home. Lovely welcome and outside seating available. Menu looked tempting but nothing to eat this time.

We love the horseshoe. The bar staff are excellent, the choice of real ales is great and the food has always hit the spot. I highly recommend their steak nights.

I would say the food was good here, but that isn't an option in the ratings! It's much better than average, but not quite 'very good'. The choice is a bit limited, but the food you get is very tasty.

I have been to the pub/restaurant infrequently but whenever I do go I always have a nice welcome. The staff are all reasonably attentive and don't rush you with your order. In winter there is always a welcoming fire but where ever you sit you will be comfortable. A normal range of drinks including some guest ales is available to... More

First impressions not good. Directed from car park via the tradesmen's entrance past kitchen and rubbish. No welcome by the staff. No elderflower or ginger beer. The one dish I had fancied from the website (Jumbo Brixham Scallops) was off. Ordered 3 specials from the board - an asparagus and chicken bake and a cannelloni. Took 40 minutes to arrive... More

Dear Peter - thank you for taking the time to review us. Firstly let me apologise for your less than satisfactory visit . Taking your points individually I am most upset that you were not welcomed properly - that is inexcusable and I shall be dealing with the offender with alacrity. Regarding the entrance to the courtyard from the car... More

Was staying close by and thought we'd chance a meal here. Was not disappointed. Food was good and reasonable and the pub had a warm, friendly feel. We liked it so much that we returned a couple of nights later and had another lovey meal. Even though it was a week night, the pub was busy with lots of people... More

If you want large portions of good British Pub fare this is the place for you. If you are looking for exceptional cooking with flair and finesse it is not the place for you.

We were staying at a local hotel but opted instead to eat here and were not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly and made us very welcome. We loved sitting next to the real fire and had great freshly cooked meals that were served very quickly. Beer was good and a great choice of wines. Highly recommended!

Had early evening meal of fish and chips, very tasty, staff very friendly and helpful. Gave advice on travel and found a local taxi company to take us to music venue outside town.
