Just off the main drag and a proper pub no airs or graces, just an honest pub serving good cider/beer. Cloudy Rattler was particularly good, next time I'm in Torquay i will definitely be going back there.

Greart pub. Simple. Shows sports, has live music, great atmosphere. Landlady and landlord run a great operation and manager is fantastic as are the staff. Busiest pub in Torquay for a good reason.
