“Great local pub. ”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Went out in Brixham last night and ended up at this lovely local pub. They do great live music. Staff were happy to help. They found my friend a seat as due to awaiting a operation she had to sit down. Great atmosphere friendly pub

We are sorry you were disappointed with the lack of choice when you arrived , Our Sunday Lunches are very popular and our busiest period is between 12 and 1.30.
Your booking was at 2.30 and we always advise at the time of booking that you can pre order your meals to avoid disappointment , which is what most of our customers do. We hope you will give us another try in the future.

“Nice watering hole”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The beer i8s very good and so is the food. A bit more than pub-grub. The only downside is that because of these good qualities it can be extremely busy at times.

“Okay as a pub, for food, give it a miss”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We popped in for a pint and for something to eat. The beer is expensive and nothing special. We did not have any food in the end. The tables were sticky, did not look to have been cleaned. Even the menus were sticky and had remnants of old food on the one's we picked up. Overall, okay for a pub but not a place to dine in.

“Locals pub”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Popped in for a drink. Very busy but it was a Saturday night. This pub was packed but we managed to sit in the restaurant bit as it was quite late and food had stopped being served. Small pub with great atmosphere obviously a winner with the amount of locals in. Might return but so many other pubs to choose from during this weeks stay in Brixham.
