We called in as we were waiting for the bus and stayed because it has a good atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. Both sky and BT sport for watching sport which indeed we did. We would return. No parking though. But, for us the bus was our chauffeur.

nice pub, not expensive, no frills. Staff were friendly, although it was a bit quiet. We were there mid week though so perhaps not a surprise.

I'm a Torquay local. I am a single Mum who works hard and does like to have a beer after work. I'm responsible, sensible and ensure I am controlled and competent at all times. I took my Dad (who was visiting me for 3 days) and my 2 year old son out for ONE drink before dinner. In this pub... More

The owner of the pub allowed my husband and I to watch the game in the pool room area even though the scheduled game was the big one - Man City! Good beer and good atmosphere. Would certainly recommend for Sky Sports. Thank you for a great afternoon.

There are not any 'just' pubs in the area. So it's nice to go for a drink without having 'wall to wall' diners. A good choice of drinks and probably the cheapest in the area. Bar staff are spot on.

Well managed and professionally run pub with good food and reasonable bar prices. Relatively small bar with added karaoke area and billiards nook. Brilliant karaoke system and compere and the regulars 'give it stick' with good support from the punters. Cosy and friendly atmosphere. Safe and comfortable. I will return.
