“Excellent gastro pub”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We have a second home in Brixham so visit most weekends. The OMH was created from an ancient and crumbling building to create an outstanding waterside pub.
Furnishings are mixed and comfortable, the pub is part of a chain but feels unique.
Some reviews mention poor service. Nonsense. The service has always been outstanding and the food great value. Staff are well trained and friendly and the atmosphere warm and welcome.
On Saturday night they have 'welcomers' on hand OK bouncers, but again they are friendly and helpful. So one worth a visit and probably a need to book at weekends as I am not alone in liking the Old Market House

“Our favourite place”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We are always made very welcome in the Old Market House. The staff are great - Rhys manages the team well and makes a real effort with the customers. He always has time to chat and is always keen to ensure customers have a pleasant experience. The team have done well with the menus also creating a more affordable menu for 'out of season' which is great value. We continue to use the Old Market House both for a drink and to eat out and always take friends and guests there. The staff never fail to create a create a good impression.

“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Visited for lunch at the end of January, chose from the special lunchtime menu ( 2 meals for £9.95)
I chose the catch of the day which while not massive was quite large enough for me and was cooked really well with lovely crunchy chips and pollock with peas, my wife chose the mussels which she also enjoyed. There was also a choice of dessert or starters with each main course for only £2 each, we both chose the apple pie with cream which was lovely.
The staff, Brendon and a very nice young lady looked after us very well being very pleasant and attentive. All in all excellent value for money we will return soon.
