    The restaurant is warm and friendly with a buzzy atmosphere but sadly one party obviously felt the need for everyone else to hear what they were saying when we first arrived. Thankfully once they left the whole experience improved dramatically. The food is well presented and tastes very good indeed. The service is friendly and efficient and prices are average with something to suit all. This was our second visit in 4 months and standards have not changed only the weather. Will I return again? definitely if I visit Torquay again I don't think I would bother trying to find somewhere better.

    Sunday carvery. One guest gluten free expected replacement veg for cauliflower cheese.....such as a plain carrot?....And perhaps gf stuffing which is easy to make and store frozen.
    Waitress was far from charming...efficient but not charming.
    Young girl who brought extra gravy was very pleasant indeed.
