Torquay and the surrounding towns are fortunate to have some of the best restaurants and places to eat in the South West. With celebrity chefs, Michelin stars and so much choice, you are in for a culinary treat.
Here are two of our favourites, the Corbyn Head being just a short stroll from the cottage, while a trip to The New Angel will require one of you to drive.
The Orchid, Torquay
Situated on the first floor of the Corbyn Head Hotel head chef Daniel Kay’s eight years in charge have earned two rosettes, three RAC Ribbons and this year a place in the coveted Michelin Red Book. With wonderful views and only 24 covers this is an intimate and special place to eat.
Alternatively, let head chef Wayne Maddern cook you up a treat in the Harbour View Restaurant downstairs. With a four-course set dinner for under £25 and one of the best Sunday lunches in the Bay, you would be mad to walk past on your way to more expensive alternatives.

The New Angel, Dartmouth
Definitely worth the short drive to the naval college town of Dartmouth where celebrity chef John Burton Race is in residence. Watch the chefs at work on the open ground floor, or eat in more relaxed surroundings of the first floor, or just enjoy cocktails upstairs. The menu, created by Burton Race, showcases the best of local and seasonal ingredients in a modern, French style. And if you miss the last ferry across the river there are six tasteful rooms located just down the street.
