“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Taken here by friends on Fathers Day. Very tasty meal,would have liked extra yorkshire pudding. Best to wait for a queue in front of you so that you dont get ends of the joint. Lovely fresh vegetables, next visit I will add loads more veg and would like the potatoes to be brown and the stuffing to be crunchy & brown. Will be visiting again, think it may have been a busy Fathers day that slightly took the edge off it.

“what a fab little find!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I found this purely by googling 'Brixham carvery' and read some excellent reviews, so booked for the next day. It is definitely worth a visit, hidden of the beaten track it's not on most tourists radars so no screaming kids! £6.50 for one of the best carverys I have ever had and lovely service too. 4 choices of meat and more veg than I have ever seen on a carvery. This place puts the mainstream likes of 'Toby' to shame. It was replenished often and all cooked to perfection. Worth booking as it doesn't seat lots of people. We will definitely go back when we are next in Brixham.

“Unmissable for Sunday lunch”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

I almost hate to praise this place, as I plan to go back often. And they only have room for about 50 diners.

Delicious food, well cooked, charmingly served, tons of it and absurdly cheap.

A really well equipped "sports TV room", a nice garden, friendly helpful staff, nice customers, well-kept local beers.

Everything a local pub ought to be.
