“An Excellent Find”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We walked to Torquay from where we were staying in Goodrington with our dog & looked this place out as was on the list of dog friendly places. From the outside it looks very dark, but inside it's brightly lit with woodern floors & lovely. The staff were very friendly offered a bowl of water for the dog too. Plenty to choose from on the menu & at a good price, be warned the portions are hugh! An excellent lunch, we will be back next time we are in the area.

“Great for families on tight budget.”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Tried the pub next door (HOLE IN WALL) first, but despite the fact they were empty, the lady behind the bar could not decide if children were accepted. How can these places survive when a family of six are looking to spend money. Would understand if they had some customers and wanted to keep it adults only.

Anyway, I left and popped my head around the door at the Devon Arms. It was quite busy, but the guy behind the bar gave me a warm welcome and quickly confirmed that children and dogs were welcome.

When i brought the family in there was a genuine welcome (including from the 'locals'!). Menu was simple - but that was what we wanted - and for the price, was great value for money.

Family of six fed for about £30 ! Round of drinks for £10. Other pubs in Torquay should look and learn from this approach.

Good honest food, friendly service, value for money.....you can't go wrong. Thank you.

“Warm welcome”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This was the most welcoming, friendly pub we found in Torquay. Spencer - the landlord was great and all the locals spoke to us and we played pool with them all. This is a must visit if you enjoy a quiet and relaxing drink.
