Ok for the locals, they all turn to look at any strangers and are not very fiendly. Was that the landlord,a bit worse for drink, behind the bar ? Turned round and walked out !

Only called in her for a quick pint of real ale but I must say, that pint was superb. If you are in Brixham and fancy a proper pint then this pub must be on your list.
