I have reviewed this venue before (Tides Torpedoes) for it's excellent breakfasts, but after recently being turned away (again) at the Crab Quay House, which by us locals incidentally, is now called "The Crap House", we ventured into Tides. Fantastic!

What is generally accepted as a greasy spoon albeit offering the best breakfast in Brixham, transforms itself for the evening trade and with the same team front and back off house is a venue to be recommended for its steak and fish selection. Quite rightly the fish is sourced locally (Tides is less than 100m from Brixham fish market) and if you book your table and select your fish supper on the day, you are guaranteed ultra fresh fish in abundance. Otherwise select dish of the day and that too will be fresh. All meals come with a good selection of potatoes, vegetables and though the wine and drinks selection is somewhat limited, the choice is adequate and inexpensive. Stuart, the hard working chef has a real talent and from the open kitchen turns out superb food constantly and that's why we will be back.

We only wanted something light as we were getting cooked breakfast and evening meal in hotel.
I fancied devon cream tea.
We got the nicest scones I have tasted for a long time with tea or coffee.
Very pleasant fair hair girl served us quickly.
She told me a lot people comment on them.
Definately would go back

It seems that the "old folks" have now retired and the place is in the hands of Claire and that good Chef Stewart

Our meal was as great as usual (why can't everyone do the fish a good ??) certainly the place to be as it is also frequented by a lot of the more decerning people from the Marina and the town.

In leaving for the night we wished them good luck and gave our assurance we would be back on our next regular visits to Brixham.

We have just spent a week in Brixham and my husband and I had breakfast here every morning..The breakfast itself was outstanding.. and the coffee was up there with the best...We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and staff...I dont know what other people are moaning about...Brenda was utterly charming....There was a great mix of people eating in the restuarant...Partically the table of locals who, without fail, were there every morning....Just a wonderful place to be....The chef was great too, accepting our washed money!!!! See you when we are next down....
