We have visited this restaurant several times and always had a great experience. Though not booked, the staff have always found us a table and been very friendly. There's a good selection of food from a decent curry with all the trimmings to a traditional roast. My partner had the fish this time which was very nicely prepared and I... More

This pub delivers really good roasts every time we have visited. The owners are always on hand to greet you, all the staff are very capable and the meat is always first class, especially the beef. They do offer a good number of alternatives to traditional roast dinners. Visited multiple time and never had a single cause for complaint. Big... More

Visited here several times over the years, good a la carte menu, plus specials board. Good parking facilities, flat surface in and outside. Main restaurant is completely level with plenty of room between the tables. Very pleasant service from staff. Good location, excellent Sunday lunch

Excellent food. Braised lamb recommended and the hake was cooked to perfection. Piping hot. Very reasonable prices for quality food. Service was very good. The young lady who served us was attentive but not pushy and had a great sense of humour

Amazing roasts selection. Had seconds of roast, which was wonderful. One of the best roasts I have had in ages. Very quick and kind service. Staff pleasant and attentive. Lovely outside seating. Drinks a good price too. Would definitely go again!

A great traditional family bar and restaurant. The food is first class and well priced. The landlord and family were most hospitable and even drove us back to our hotel!. A great way to spend a day,

Haven't been here for over 5 years and wont be rushing back. Could have real potential but it is a real shame. Menu is limited, food not executed very well and menu incoherent. Think target market is the over 70s and it felt like being in a 1970s Torquay Hotel restaurant. If you are expecting a lovely rustic pub then... More
