As we were visiting Brixham we came here as we had never been disappointed with their food, we were however saddened that the daily lunches for the smaller eaters had been discontinued, so instead we choose baguettes and salad, both beef and onion and crab, both were delicious, but we had requested that the onions be well done, unfortunately a communication breakdown ..... no crispy onions. We requested salad dressing and were advised they only had mayonnaise !!!! We cannot fault both the delicious crab or the steak but its the little details that count.

We had hoped that they had replaced the very dirty and tired carpet in the bar and given the place a more cheery look, but its obvious the locals enjoy the unkempt look. It is a pity that a pub which serves tasty food does not take more care with its appearance or that extra care with listening to their customers !

All the staff make you feel very welcome. The regulars are very friendly too and if you go in a few times on your visit to Brixham, you'll see what I mean. Food is excellent, not one dodgy meal after a week there. Tried almost everything on the menu and couldn't fault anything. Very, very pet friendly which is right up there in my opinion of places to eat. I wont be back for a few years after my last visit which was middle of September 13 but will definitely look forward to visiting this truly amazing pub again. Well done to the manager and staff, they have the upmost respect for all of their customers.
