“Good pub fayre”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

First time visitor and went with the kids who have eaten here before. Was quite busy for a Tuesday in Torquay but managed to find a table without having booked. Starters and mains were good (I had the Pea Risotto which was nice and 'fresh') but the desserts were very good indeed - Bakewell tart highly recommended. Service was okay for a gastropub. Would go again.

“Restaurant food at pub prices”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Very friendly welcome, good selection of real ales and excellent choice of menu. Specials board is 'just that' where else have you found 'skate fish cakes on beetroot & horseradish' or curried cod......mmmmmmm. You will not be disappointed.
