We came here as a couple without a booking for dinner on a Friday night. We arrived at around 6.45pm and were seated on the last unreserved table, so were very fortunate. Over the weekend we realised that people in Torquay seem to be more into reserving tables for any occasion than in London, and we ended up eating very... More

We arrived midweek without a booking. First problem was locating it again: local roadside food teams had heard of it, but didn't know it. We'd forgotten, and it was only by chance that someone had a phone internet link to track it down. The restaurant was booked from about 6.30pm, but we managed to get in just before it officially...

The floor as you enter is cobbles which looks original as the day the pub was built. The food is lovely. We both had steak... More

The Hole in the Wall can be split into two halves-- the pub and the restaurant- but whichever half it is a great place to eat and drink. The pub side is very quaint and serves a good choice of ales as well as very good bar meals. The restaurant is slightly more formal with good food at reasonable prices.... More

Oldest pub in Torquay lovely old bar with stone and flint floor. Several real ales on drought. Large restaurant attached but doesn't feel large due to different levels. Food was good and well priced so it's a popular place. (book if you want to sure of a table) Live music in the bar two or three night s a week.... More
