Best rump steak we have ever had, tasty and very tender.
Attractive location and cosy interior.
Staff very welcoming and helpful.
We will definitely visit again.

I last visited Torquay some 30 odd years ago. If I needed an excuse to not leave it so long until my next visit, this place is it.
The absolute best suet pudding (with the ox cheek) I have ever tasted. Light, tasty and just amazing. There was also a mushroom the size of an aubergine which was sublimely tasty.
I do like that most of the wines on the wine list were offered as glass, 500ml carafe, or bottle. Good idea.
My wife was impressed by the arrancini, and the chilli squid would bear comparison with any we have ever tasted.
Scallops might be considered a bit of a liberty ar £12 for two, but fabulous nontheless.
Absolutely not the restaurants fault, but the bonehead effing and jeffing at the adjoining table all meal long was a low point.
I would have liked to stay longer and get pleasantly squiffy, and perhaps jump into the sweet menu. Perhaps next time

We are staying in Torquay for a couple of months and were lucky enough to discover this place the first day we were here. We have eaten nowhere else because it is hard to believe anything could come close. Every dish looks interesting and every dish has been fantastic. Their Sunday roast surpasses anything we have encountered anywhere else. The fish dishes are amazing. Highly recommended.
