We have been here a couple of times now, it is a lovely old pub with a lot of history. The staff are always very friendly and make you feel welcome. Would recommend a visit if in the Torquay area.

Only stopped off for a drink, lovely quaint old pub with a good selection of ales situated not far from the harbour by the dinosaur museum. Service was prompt as there were not many customers. We read this was the oldest pub in Torquay, be sure to duck on your way in, the ceilings are quite low!

If you want a pub with character then you wouldn't be sad to come here. The pub is apparently torquays oldest pub, there are cobbled floors and low beams and a great choice of beers & ciders. We had a meal in the restaurant side of the pub and all enjoyed what we had.

I think the only negative comment I can say is where the building is old the access could be better as you have to enter through a narrow alley that is really steep. So if you have mobility problems it might be quite a task to get it.

Great beer, food and live music, what more do I need to say.
Had a really good meal one afternoon, and was not disappointed when my wife and I returned a couple of nights later.

we visited bank holiday weekend. Were unable to get a table in the restaurant as it was fully booked. We ate in the bar and the food was very good, nicely presented and portion sizes were satisfactory. We sampled the real ales and then enjoyed the live music which was excellent. The bar was very full for most of the evening but the service was quick and efficient. I would highly recommend this place both for food and entertainment,It's a long time since we* stayed at the Pub until closing time" but we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
