Whilst we did not eat here, we called in on several occasions whilst in Brixham for some liquid refreshment in amongst our busy schedule. Very nice place, lots of character, great service, and wide selection of big brewer drinks and the smaller craft beers, of which I would recommend Korev or Devon Rock.

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable evening here having drinks sitting by the fire on comfy sofas. We only intended to stay for one but then Chris Thomas started singing and we stayed until close because he's so good. We didn't have food but everything coming out looked nice.

Well recommended, food amazing, good friendly staff, some evenings there's live music. The valentines menu is fantastic. This is a good family pub, with a outdoor eating area overlooking the harbour.

Situated in a fantastic location on the harbour opposite the Golden Hinde. We were a very big group and were dining upstairs with table service, so we had pre-ordered our food. The waiter was well prepared and very attentive double checking all of the pre orders. Service was friendly and the speed not bad given the size of the group.... More

Food below average and drinks expensive, service slow and only one other table of people in that evening, not what we expected.

While on holiday in Brixham we visited The Old Market House a couple of times. We only had drinks so can't comment on the food but the staff were pleasant and it was a lovely place to sit outside and enjoy the view of Brixham harbour.
