We went to this pub for a meal which was so lovely we went back the following night! The food was excellent as were the staff. The pub is full of character and is the oldest pub in Torquay

Heard about this little gem from locals.

First visit as a party of 5 was met with a wince (as they were busy and we hadn't booked) but a "can do" attitude, and they managed to squeeze us in - on a busy Saturday in August.

Food was excellent - 2 specials (seafood crumble) and 3 off the normal menu. Food was plentiful, well presented and service was polite and attentive. Certainly at a standard above any "pub-grub" we have eaten in the area to date, and priced slightly higher, but the quality spoke for itself. Second visit was pre-empted by a booking, and when we arrived we were taken to our table and received a similar level of service and quality of food.

When we bring friends to the area it would certainly be on top of our list of local eateries to take them but even as a family on our own we would definitely return. I have hesitated writing this review as would like to keep this our own hidden gem !

We went to the Hole in the Wall on recommendation whilst in Torquay. What a fab pub, but even better was the restaurant at the back. The food was amazing and you would expect that standard of food and atmosphere in a really expensive restaurant not a pub! We were so impressed. Just wish we had somewhere like that nearer to where we live. Absolutely fantastic!!

Difficult to find and the outside could be just any pub any where. But inside WOW. Great bar, great restaurant, excellent menu and good value for money. Ate in the restaurant, twice, but cast an envious eye over the very large bar food. Pity we went on a night without music that would have been the icing on the cake.
