We stopped in for a quick snack and were impressed with staff and layout next to the Harbour. The toilets were spotless on our visit both genders were clean. We were pleased with The Food and service. All GOOD.

Nice surroundings overlooking the Golden Hind replica. Downstairs was quite cosy but lacking in any real atmosphere. Food was what you would expect from a franchise pub.

The Old Market House is a contemporary restaurant in Brixham, Devon, a picturesque seaside fishing port. Our building is listed, and years ago played host to ship builders, an indoor fish market and a tourist information centre, amongst other trades. Now we serve fantastic meals harbour-side, with professional, friendly and efficient service from 12pm till late. Fancy a bite to eat with a beautiful view? We can do that! Our ground floor plays host to our bar and over 150 outdoor seats. Take advantage of St Austell Brewery's awesome selection of Real Ale (Tribute, Proper Job and HSD to name a few) and Cornish Lager (Korev) and the sun. Upstairs is our restaurant and balcony with full table service. Enjoy food cooked from fresh with local ingredients, served with a smile!
