“A lovely stroll on a summer's day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

The best free visit in Torquay. Take a picnic and watch the cricket on the strange, sloping cricket pitch. Lovely gardens that are at their best in early summer. The rose garden behind the house is a fragrant gem not to be missed.

“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

The food whilst quite simple, was very tasty with something on the menu for everyone. Service was very good from the ordering at the till inside to the food being brought to the table and then the dishes removed.
