“Very nice breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

As we had arrived early for our break in Torquay we decided to have a late breakfast at this restaurant. There is nothing listed on the menu for vegetarians which was an initial disappointment. When I ordered the food I explained to the young woman serving that I would like a breakfast without sausages or bacon, to which she did seem confused as to why I wouldn't want these things (I think she was possibly eastern european and possibly did not understand). However, another person behind the bar came over and this was soon sorted out. When the breakfasts arrived (mine without meat my otherhalf's with bacon and sausages) they were delicious and perfectly cooked, no complaints with the food at all. Quite a nice place to dine with views of the harbour.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

I had a cheese ploughmans, I don't really know how you can go wrong with that but you live & learn. The bread was dry & stale, the pickle tasted like value jarred stuff...disgusting! The salad looked like something that'd been tipped out of a bag, coleslaw was vile, watery & discoloured, supermarket value range again i'm guessing & the half a pickled onion was dry & had orange flecks all over it...looked like they'd taken it off another plate! The cheese was ok, nothing special. God only knows what their cooked food was like if they made such a mess of a simple ploughmans! Staff didn't really seem very friendly. Would not go back even if you paid me. Steer clear!

“Good pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

My partner and I had the 2 meals for £9.95. I had the chilli with rice and salad which was very tasty and the portion was huge! I actually couldn't finish it there was that much of it. My partner had the chicken, chips and peas and also found his meal to be tasty. We thought the meals were excellent value for money.
