“Great pub with good food & drinks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Impressive attention from the moment we walked in as a party of 8 with 4 children under 8 years of age.

“Second visit and just as good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

One good visit and three great meals don't guarantee a top experience but do give a good indication. A second visit, three more excellent meals from a varied and interesting menu with both meat and fish cooked very well on a manically busy evening illustrate a professional set up and a culture of good service, which is exactly what we had from the staff. We were advised of the time for service before completing our order and it arrived before it was due. The pleasant surroundings, well controlled temperature and good atmosphere made for a really good evening - one that represented a combined effort of all the staff front and back of house

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I have visited this pub a number of times over the last four years and have to say that the food is outstanding. The fresh crab sandwiches are bursting with meat and always on wonderfully fresh bread. Far far superior to those served at the Victoria Hotel which is arguably the finest in Sidmouth.

“very pollite staff but poor food and boiling hot!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

The food was ridiculously boiling hot ,sadly tasteless, the steak served was of a very very poor quality even more so for the price charged. The menu is very detailed and offers great choice but food is sadly lacking. The restuarant itself was very pleasant and staff very polite and curtious, bit of background music would improve the atmosphere.
