Fantastic to have live music in the evenings. As a solo traveller, it’s what I went for. Ended up ordering the chicken fajita and it was great. Very friendly staff with a great atmosphere. Loved it. Will be back soon ☺️❤️

Visit here on a regular basis. But on the menu i noticed a Burger pizza. Was very tasty. Strongly advise not eating anything before as it is so filling.

Rock Garden only opened a couple of years ago but has quickly become the place to be. This is due in part to our delicious food of either freshly made pizzas cooked in our wood burning stone oven (The only one in the area) or our legendary burgers & juicy steaks. However we have much more then just that though ranging from salads to sandwiches, soups & stews as well as Fajitas & Fish! We also have a separate Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten free menu. As expected all our food is freshly made, locally sourced & prepared on the premises. The other reason behind Rock Gardens success is the largest outdoor space in Torquay town. The garden has to be seen to be believed, during the summer you can soak up the sun while enjoying our food, jugs of Pimms or even our amazing cocktails. In the evening the Rock Garden really comes into its own having recently built an amazing stage to showcase our fantastic live music which we have every night of the week! Acts cover music from Ed Sheeran & Bruno Mars to Motown and The Beatles as well as acoustic versions of famous pop songs! For more information check out our Facebook page, website, call or pop in.
