Although this has an excellent restaurant attached you still know you are in a pub. Good beers always available served by good staff friendly and welcoming. Dogs welcome too.

We popped in for a quick drink on the way back to our B&B and ended up staying for two hours. What a gem of a pub. Nice atmosphere, cosy ambience and lovely beer. I would fully recommend the Jail Ale! Friendly staff topped off a pleasant evening.

A great little pub ticked away but easy to find. There was a resteraunt (it wasn't open) but the menu looked good and the locals said it is good hearty food. Lonely atmosphere and friendly staff. We popped in for one and stayed for 3.

Hidden away just off the Torquay Harbour this is an historic pub with so much character. Six plus different real ales on each night. The restaurant food looks really tasty and not too expensive. Try this one if you can find it of course.

Great pub for a quiet drink, or a nice bite to eat in the oldest pub in Torquay. Landlord friendly and approachable and staff pleasant too.

Thank Steven M
