Description: Rock Garden only opened a few years ago but has established itself as the place to be. This is due in part to our delicious food of either freshly made pizzas cooked in Torquays only wood burning stone oven or our legendary burgers & juicy steaks. However we have so much more then just that ranging from salads to sandwiches, soups & stews as well as Fajitas & Fish! We also have a separate Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten free menu as well as options for children. As expected all our food is freshly made, locally sourced & prepared on the premises. Rock Garden also has 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 one of our amazing cocktails. In the evening the Rock Garden really comes into its own having fantastic live music 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

Me and my partner loved this place !
We went in for a drink and from looking at the menu thought we would eat there ,
We are so glad we did the nachos we're the nicest we have ever had and we love a cheeky nacho and the steak on the pizza was sooo tasty !
This place is quite hidden down a path but we are so glad we found it !
Worth a visit we missed the live entertainment but wil be returning that's for sure !

My bf and myself went to Torquay over night in may and came across the Rock Garden pub. We had a drink in the afternoon and while there found out there was live music that evening , so we decided to return later. We came back around 7.30 and had a beautiful pizza to share and some more drinks. The bar was busy and the atmosphere buzzing. We stayed for a few hours and really enjoyed it the staff were friendly , the food lovely and the music was good. Will visit again when next in Torquay. Worth a visit.

Thanks so much to the team at Rock Garden, especially Matt & Connor for handling a large Hen party for cocktail making! The guys did a fabulous job and the girlies have all said how much fun they had.
We had really good food after cocktails. Great quality, huge portions and really great value for money. We had a couple dietary requirements which were handled without issue. Table staff were really friendly and attentive (sorry didn't get your names girls!)
Rock garden really got the party off to the best start. Thanks!!!

We were recommended this by a lady in local Post Office. Great recommendation. We were early so had our pick of the seats for our meal. We chose upstairs as we had good view of the stage for when the live band came on later in the evening. Food and atmosphere was very good and staff friendly. Also noted that they had a good selection on menu for vegetarians and vegans. As this is a busy pub type restaurant we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness. All tables cleared regularly and wiped down. We stayed until the band started but after a few songs decided their music not really for us, so headed back to B&B.

Went on a friends recommendation.
Was very surprised with the size of the place - was expecting a small(ish) venue.
greeted on entry by a member of staff - all of which were excellent.
Drinks reasonably priced, including pitchers.
Lovely atmosphere for such a large building. Was shown to the table upstairs on the balcony, which had a great view of the whole Café/Bar.
Starters and Mains very well priced - Friday was Steak night and they were all £9.99.
Cooked to perfection and as many other reviewers have said, the wedges are lovely!!
Would recommend to any fellow reviewers to visit and will return.
Thanks to all there for a great time.
