Customer Reviews:

A great old fashioned pub where every one talks and laughs together.

Have been going to this pub now for over 15 years, whenever I get to Torbay. Now run by the original landord's son, it is without doubt, the best pub in Torbay !

Always great value, and the landlord is so friendly.

To describe it as "characterful" is to grossly understate the facts. If you have never been, it is an absolute must.


Babbacombe Bay is just around the corner from us and it is a superb spot all year round with a choice of hotels, inns, bed & breakfasts, self-catering apartments and Devon cottages,It’s the perfect spot for couples looking for a romantic break, families looking for plenty of fun or dog-lovers wanting to get away with their very best-friends.  

There’s plenty happening all year round.  Enjoy browsing the independent shops and boutiques of Babbacombe and St Marychurch.

      Following lockdown. This is the only proper, traditional pub in St Marychurch and the whole of Torquay if the truth were known. Two separate bars, public and lounge. Log fires. No television. Who... Read full review
