My wife, Glawdys, her brother Ianto and several children inc. Gruff, Iestyn, Guto, Will Cwac Cwac and Myfanwy visited this pub last week, together with our pet sheep Angharad. We were astonished to find that they had no facilities whatsoever for Angharad. Be assured we will never ever visit again.

This is a pub with real character, real ale, and a great old world atmosphere. It's such a surprise to walk into a local pub where you are greeted as warmly as the locals. There's a really friendly Canadian barmade who made us feel so welcome. The beer was great and the lunch we had was perfect, great value, great... More

The Clocktower has all the live sports on 4 screens. The food is excellent. George, Brook and all the staff are very friendly. Located near Torquay harbour with a good selection of real ales, largers, ciders and wine.

Wasn't sure when I went in that I would like it but I was wrong. Had a lovely evening with really good dj who played 60s, 70s, 80s music with videos to match. Drinks reasonable, cocktails nice and shots at £2 a go really good. Try the popes nose, excellent!

This is a friendly pub where everyone is made to feel welcome. There is food on offer at reasonable prices, 3 quid for a pint of chicken wings. There is also live music as well as music videos played. Everyone was having a good time. The pub had a good vibe.
