My wife and I always pay a visit here when we are in Torquay. As usual the food was great and the staff were so helpful and polite. I wished we lived nearer to visit more often.

Awesome place with a low roof in the bar area. Food was tasteful. Garlic bread with cheese for a starter was basically cheese on toast, garlic wasn’t to be found. Smothered chicken was lovely.

During our visit, we didn't see any dogs inside or out. Might be best to give them a quick call.
