Eating Out

Spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out

We hope you'll discover the fantastic range of restaurants we have in the area from the simple and familiar to some of the finest in the West.

Rose Cottage is in our village centre, it’s a favourite for an inexpensive al fresco lunch or a delicious cream tea - they have a seasonal piano player and stunning views across the village. Equally as lovely is Weaver's Cottage Tea rooms, although smaller it has a beautiful walled courtyard garden. They specialise in light lunches, top quality Devon cream teas, homemade cakes and have an ice cream parlour. The famous Lutyens designed Drum Inn (Vintage Inns) pub and restaurant is just round the corner with plenty of tables inside and out; you rarely need to make a reservation and is dog friendly too.

Outside of the village Torbay has so many options for dining out there really is something for everyone from Michelin star restaurants to your favourite chains and everything in between. A leisurely stroll towards Torquay will bring you to the Palm Court area where you'll find a number of popular chain restaurants and a cocktail bar, all overlooking Torre Abbey Sands, with a chilled out mediterranean vibe. 

In our opinion there are a few restaurants that shouldn’t be missed and to avoid disappointment it's worth pre-booking. The Church House Inn is in the next village of Marldon, a great pub restaurant.  A treat for fish lovers is Number Seven Fish Bistro down at the harbour who specialise in local sustainably caught seafood. For the perfect sunset meal the Breakwater Bistro in Brixham or Shoals (fish), overlooking Brixham outdoor pool is worth the drive.

If you are eating in then Sainsburys, Asda and Waitrose are a short drive away and will deliver too. There is a well equipped Co-op just over the hill in Chelston where you will also find a range of local shops including a post office, butchers, pharmacy etc.
