“Atmospheric bar and terrific staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

Comfortable, wood-lined bar with much nautical atmosphere and explanation of why it is named the Ernie Lister. Well kept Otter ales and good choice of wines by the mini bottle. Dave and Becky particularly good bar staff and give the same, warm welcome to both locals and visitors. Food, from the hotel kitchen, is delicious and very fairly priced. Definitely one of the best places in Brixham for a meal and/or a drink.

“Off the beaten track”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

Very much a bar rather than a pub, bit like a hotel bar I guess. Great beers in there and the classiest toilets in Devon! Although they are upstairs so take note.
Just down from the Maritime Inn if you fancy a very brief pub crawl.
Also appear to have live music on several nights in season.
