A quirky restaurant with a warm welcome and delicious fresh fish and steak. The sign and name make it sound like a pub or a pirate-themed place but it isn’t!

Called in with some friends and had a fantastic meal at this establishment. The owner is very friendly and helpful. I would certainly eat here again if in Brixham.

Been here a couple of times, always the same, good food fresh cooked well. Friendly owner and staff. What more do you want. Easily missed but worth tracking down. Fresh fish cooked well. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.

We are an unpretentious restaurant serving great food. We have local fresh fish and terrific steaks from locally reared stress-free animals. Choose a bottle of wine from our carefully selected range, all priced below normal restaurant prices. We make our own bread and desserts. All in all, we can give your tastebuds a great workout. We welcome adult diners, but regret that we are unable to offer facilities to children under 12 years old. We no longer respond to reviews, as they are now being manipulated too frequently.
