We're a local, dog friendly restaurant that specializes in Tapas and wine, as well as providing classic English lunch time meals. Positioned at the bottom of Torquay Town, and a five minute walk from the beach, we provide the perfect hideaway for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle for a few hours. Come in and help yourself to a comfy sofa, a newspaper and some of our commended coffee and nibbles!
