Managed to find two tables for lunch, which was lucky because its not a big pub once you are inside, just how a pub in a fishing harbour should be be. We ordered food and drink at the bar which was easy enough. The jail ale was a really good pint, so good i had two but the branding design on the glass was very scratched and looked a bit tatty, this doesn't effect the taste or quality but it's just something that niggles me when it happens. Food did take a while to come but we didn't mind, it just meant we could have another pint. When the food arrived it was well worth the wait, the fish and chips and the steak pie were obviously freshly cooked and the portion sizes were decent. Quality of food was very good and the steak in the pie just melted in your mouth.

Went for a fantastic Sunday lunch that was reasonably priced. The beer was good and staff were friendly and helpful (dark haired guy with a beard and an older man). There is a sign up saying no children but it’s targeted at children in pushchairs and high chairs which is understandable as there just isn’t room for them in this rustic pub (kids aren’t allowed in the bar area either but that’s pretty normal). As long as your child can be seated normally (my daughter is 4), you’ll be fine but if they misbehaved they contractually can be sold to pirates. We actually went back for the basket meals on another day.

My husband and I stopped in here for an early dinner before going to watch the rugby on a Saturday night. The food is good home cooked pub grub. We both picked off the specials board, I had a fish pie which was delicious and my husband fish and chips, his fish was huge and absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this place if you fancy some good hearty pub grub, we will definitely be returning.

We visited for Sunday lunch whilst staying in Brixham based solely on tripadvisor and reviews. It was quite possibly the best Sunday lunch we have had. Really generous portions, home made and expertly cooked. The prices are reasonable and the service was great too. Would 100% recommend to anyone and would love to come back for Sunday lunch in the future.
