With low ceilings (careful you don't bang your head going to the loo!) and authentic decor, this place looked the part. The service was attentive too.

Reputedly established circa 1520, this hostelry is steeped in character and atmosphere. The restaurant offers an extensive menu (we did not eat there), and a good selection of bar snacks and real ales are also available. Friendly efficient service, and worth visiting even just for a drink.

Went to have a quiet drink and had a great night out. The place was packed. If you want food I recommend that you book as it gets really busy. On the night we went there was entertainment on.

We have visited this quaint pub/restaurant on our two previous visits to Torquay. The staff are always friendly. The service is great and the food beautifully cooked and presented. That's why we will always go back.

In a small lane at Torquay harbour, the pub dates back to the 16th century, and the pub area is really fascinating, exhudating a sense of history. The restaurant is more modern, even though it matches in style the older section. The food is regular pub grub (but I admit I had just fish and chips - not a vey... More
