We called in on the way back from our day out on the steam train as we were hungry, thirsty and didn't want to go into a chip shop or café.
I had the steak and ale pie and my wife had the gammon, firstly the chef did mess up the order by not putting the tomatoes and mushrooms on my wife's meal but staff did apologise and it was soon sorted. The food was very good and at a reasonable price being a good size meal.
The staff were friendly and very professional.
The only down side is the toilets are up 2 flights of stairs. But that would not stop we returning to this Bar.

This bar became one of our favourites during our stay.

The staff were friendly and it had quite a few locals using it. Always a good sign!
The meals were nicely cooked and plenty of it and drinks kept well.

Went to this pub yesterday lunchtime, thirsty and hungry. Chose "seafood platters", which we found attemting. When receiving the food plates we were surprised to find it all covered/battered, and served with lots of chips. And it tasted like I will call junk food. We had troubled stomacs for several hours after this meal. Came to think of the pub advertising "Probably the best pub food in town". If this is true I will not bother to look for pub food in Paignton any more.
Nothing negative abort the prices and the service, and the ales we had were fine. But there seemed to be no options if you want to have a proper meal.

Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry that you didn't realise that the seafood platter came in breadcrumbs, even though it did say it on all of the special boards. With regards to there being no healthier options, we also had a grilled chicken and bacon salad available on the same special board, as well as other options, such as jacket potatoes and ploughmans lunches on the regular menu. We are also happy to substitute, wherever possible, healthier options into any meal.
