“Brixham”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The bars are entertaining and the people are friendly. The only reason it's not a 5 is because the wind chill in December took it down to about - 10C. Looking forward to trying the fish bar at the market when I go back in March. At the far end of the harbour area there is a cafe, which I highly recommend for eating in. Good quality cafe food with excellent views and the staff are really nice.

Lovely view of the town rising up from the harbour. Very surprise to find that William of Orange has a connection.

“A day trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Myself and two friends travelled to Brixham for an afternoons visit. We all liked the shops, seafood restaurants and the friendly inhabitants. For February, we had a beautifully sunny day and a really lovely seafood meal in one of the harbourside restaurants. The only dislike was the tide was out and we only had an afternoons visit. Can't wait for next year!

“Newly Arrived”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

We have just recently moved to Brixham and we love the harbour area - it's great to come down here and watch the activity, there is always something to see as the harbour is constantly changing and active. Loads of little cafes, could get seriously fat eating lots of cream teas, at least the excellent local fish is good for you! Also a great place to come on a budget, as walking the harbour and going out to the lytehouse costs nothing!
