“Best food in Brixham by far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Authentic pork stroganoff with fluffy rice was a joy to eat and the cheeseboard that followed - three well-kept, generous wedges with chutney, celery and crisp biscuits - was better than many more prestigious establishments provide. With two glasses of red wine, the bill was just £25.85, truly good value for money. Excellent, attentive service from the genial head barman David. I have eaten in most of the pubs and restaurants in Brixham but the Ernie Lister is by far the best, always reliable for an enjoyable supper, a warm welcome and pleasant surroundings.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

This bar/pub is in a lovely old building with some very interesting quirks. We had a good 3 course evening meal consisting of tapas,thai curry and sticky toffee pudding. Meal was all tasty,fresh and home cooked. Only comment would have liked proper coffee rather than filter but otherwise can't fault.

“Great bar to enjoy drinks and a meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Food in the Ernie Lister is virtually the same as that provided in the attached hotel restaurant, and good value for money.

“Great Food Great Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Brixham that allowed dogs in and not treated like the plague which a lot of places have now started to do. Thank god for Ernie bar the staff are very friendly and the food WELL AS FOR THE FOOD what can I say except fantastic we had the Monk fish in beer batter with fries and salad and plenty of it. Give them a try up on King's Street you will not be disappointed
