Gemelli's Italian Restaurant
A 5 minute walk down the hill and around the corner, Gemelli's is a small family-run Italian restaurant that we highly recommend - as do many of our guests!
Just a couple of minutes away on Belgrave Rd is this Indian restaurant that we always really enjoy - eating in or take-away.
One World Cafe
Set in the beautiful gardens by Torre Abbey, The Riveria Centre and the crazy golfcourse is this lovely independent cafe and bistro that serves delicious food and has a great outdoor patio.
The Blue Walnut is a great cafe that hosts a variety of events, including live music. It's a small, fully licensed cafe that hosts predominantly blues and folk bands. It can only seat approximately 35 people, so we advise that you book in advance! (15 minute walk to Chelston area of Torquay).
A traditional pub and restaurant in Combeinteignhead (just outside of Newton Abbot, approx 7 miles from us) Coombe Cellars sits on the South bank of the Teign estuary. Great food and an amazing view - definitely worth the drive.
The Crab Shack, Teignmouth
Another great location on the Teign estuary, this small restaurant has its own fishing boats and offers some of the best seafood in the area. Small but very popular, booking is required but worth the effort.
