I have been frequenting the Devon Arms for around 6 months now, it has recently changed hands. Boy, what a change! They now have a pool table, jukebox, dart board, really good selection of drinks. The doombar ale is served perfectly. And to top it off, perfect hosts.

The pub has just reopened under new management. We were very impressed by the friendly welcome. Great wee pub. Best hand cut chips in Torquay!

Lovely Christmas meal with all the trimmings. The roast dinners here are legendary, lots of choice and lots of it. Homemade as well. Nice choice of craft beers and an independent old style pub.

this is off the beaten track next to the hole in the wall seems more of a pub for the locals but the barman was very friendly and we had a lovely chat to him.

The Devon Arms is what I would class as a traditional pub serving good quality reasonably priced food. The menu is not extensive but is perfectly adequate with a extra blackboard offering daily specials.
