Firstly can't fault the food at all. We had crab and smoked chicken both of which very fresh and well cooked. We did wait over 10 minutes before drinks order was taken and 20 minutes for food. Also the crab was massive but only a small claw cracker provided. I asked one waiter for another and was asked if I was serious? Luckily another guy saw our predicament and whisked the crab away to be properly smashed up. I think they need to work on service a bit harder as there were plenty of staff but we kept having to attract attention. However, we did enjoy our night and this place is a well above some of the mediocre rubbish we have to put up with in Brixham.

Went for lunch with family, a group of 5.

Have eaten in places like this across the US dozens of times.
Interesting industrial look & feel, but on closer inspection it felt that industrial just came across as not finished properly. Bathrooms where a little 'rustic'

Service was not great. Took a while to get served and had to go to the bar twice to ask where our drinks where and to ask what had happened to our meals. Two groups came in after us, but received food before. Was around 40 minutes to get food and the place was about half full.

We ordered some burgers, mac & cheese and my mother had a starter which was pate & walnut, which to say the least was oddly presented and tasted funny.

It's definitely a different look and feel, not blown away with our first visit, but will try again on an evening to see if the service is more what would be expected.
