“Would Not Go Back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

Food was not good and expensive for what it was and the one member of staff on was not really engaged. Lacked atmosphere. As we were going in a couple of customers were just leaving and said they would never go back. Such a shame as this pub is in a great location and has loads of potential.

“Slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

After ordering our meal my wife and I had a long wait, my wife's Crab salad was satisfactory, my Gammon steak was overdone and slightly burnt, the chips were awful. To finish it all I was given a normal knife to cut the overdone Gammon with, a near impossibility

“Great pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

We were given a friendly welcome and all the staff were chatty and helpful. Great position on the harbour and will definitely visit again. The food was fresh, hot and served pretty quick.

“Staff really let the venue and customers down.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

It could be the best pub and restaurant in Brixham, however the staff have no plan in place. They only take cash and are VERY inattentive.
When ordering drinks and meals the server took three phone calls in the middle of the order, despite other staff being able to take the calls. Micro-management springs to mind.
Food order placed and after an untimely wait some of it arrived, however a side order of fries arrived after we had finished and was so small that it wasn't worth having.
Will not be returning soon.

“Booking is key”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

You must book a table in the Bullers in order to eat because it is always really busy in here. It has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are so friendly and nice to talk to. This is our favourite pub in Brixham because it is not noisy and has lovely views across the harbour. Food is amazing and always served quickly even with a lot of people in the pub. We always come here and have no negatives what so ever because quite frankly, there isn't any!
Thanks for the great meals! Please book here.
