“A bar named after a local hero”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Nice atmosphere, decent range of menu and local ales, with liove music on some days. Again overlooks the harbour, a nice place to be and enjoy a night out.

“'Bar food'.... Misleading name”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

The food in the bar is from the same kitchen as the hotel restaurant... And it shows. Everything we've had there (except a rather pretentious 'cheese on toast') has been delicious and pretty good value; and the staff are mostly long-established and friendly. Decent selection of ciders and real ales too.

“Great pub for food and drink”
Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Recently moved to Brixham and I must admit that I initially wrote off this pub as "just a hotel bar."

I now consider it one of Brixham's best pubs.

The staff are all very friendly and the food is fantastic. Eaten there twice now and both times the grub was excellent.

Restaurant standard food, but served in a warm and inviting pub and at a good price.

“Good food at reasonable prices.”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Having a boat on Brixham marina, we have eaten here several times for a "pub" meal.The bar staff are always very friendly and welcoming. The food is reasonably priced and of a consistently good standard. I particularly like their home-made burgers and the lasagne. Not gourmet food but value for money and very palatable.
