Great meal and service today, first weekend after 2nd lockdown. They knew all the rules, followed them and were very polite and friendly about it all. So to the food. When we got there we wanted something off the evening menu even though it was...1pm in the afternoon and they were very happy to oblige... hand battered cod and chips and it was cooked just perfect.... crispy batter, soft white fish, chips and mushy peas. Food was excellent and so was the serviceMore

I had hoped I might find a real Devon Scrumpy Cider here, but no luck. Having got through all the track and trace, hand washing, being shown to a table, we decided we might as well have a drink while we were there (the only...cider being one fizzy one). So my husband ordered a gin and tonic and I asked for a rum and lemonade without ice. Mine came as a rum and coke with ice, which was near enough (a common mistake as most barstaff aren't used to people ordering it with anything other than coke). The pub was nice, and as long as you aren't wanting real scrumpy cider, I would recommend it. We failed to find real cider anywhere in Paignton or Torquay, so this pub certainly wasn't alone in that.More

We visited twice during our weeks stay in Paignton. We were greeted at the door and advised of the Covid arrangements and we were seated. My partner went to the bar to order and our drinks were brought over to our table. Nice place staff...were knowledgeable about the beers. We had a couple of different ales and the were kept well. Will visit next time we are in the area.More

Lovely medium size pub in central paignton, great reasonably priced food and drinks. Friendly staff, frequented by locals and tourists alike. Due to size of pub would suggest avoid with young children especially when busy, but that is only my opinion.

Popped in last minute for lunch before going to the zoo. Staff really friendly and helpful. Food was lovely. Although basic pub grub it was very well cooked and tasted great. Covid measures were efficient and well thought out, it was great.

Not sure about vegetarian options. Probably best to check first with Henry’s Bar direct.

Hiya. Yes, well behaved poochies are very welcome into the bar area. They must be on a lead, quiet and keep their paws on floor. Hope to see you soon :-)
