Where can I eat and drink in Torquay?
One of the most enjoyable places to have a cream tea is in the Rose Cottage Tea rooms in the heart of the quintessential village of Cockington. Hidden away in a wooded valley not far from the Torquay seafront you can enjoy a delightful high or cream tea in beautiful gardens with a live pianist playing in the background.
Beautifully situated adjacent to Torquay's marina, the Pier Point restaurant is the perfect place to eat and drink. In the summer it’s lovely to sit outside and enjoy the spectacular views out over the Bay.
