The Dolphin sits squarely in the middle of St Marychurchs’ precinct. After 24 years looking after peoples’ hair and being a regular user of the pub, Ashley decided he liked it so much he bought it. He took it over in December 2010 and has set about refurbishing the place both inside and out. In addition to this The Dolphin now does food! Served from midday til 9:00pm Tuesday-Saturday and from 1:00pm til 8:00pm on a Sunday (Ashley has the day off on a Monday) a wide selection of starters, sandwiches, light lunches or main meals are available to you. From mussels mariniere, pate and toast to a cheese and tomato sandwich or tagliatelle pasta, there should be something here to suit everyone. There are daily deals of two 10oz rump steaks for £17. Also available are main meals 2 for £12. There’s also a childrens menu. Everything is home cooked and freshly produced to order so you may have to wait a little bit longer if the pub is busy but it will be worth it. Pub opening hours are from 11:00am til midnight every day except Sunday when the pub opens at midday. This is a non-sport pub so don’t expect to find endless replays of long forgotten football matches that nobody wants to watch being played at deafening volume! Ales on offer include Otter, Betty Stogs and Trelawany as well as guest ales while the cider is provided by Aspalls and Thatchers Gold. The pub is family run and family friendly so feel free to bring the kids along. The menus are below: The Dolphin 001 The Dolphin 003
Situated right next door to the restaurant Shandiz Takeaway offers you great value fish n chips, burgers, pizzas and much more, so if you’re in a rush or too covered in sand to sit in the restaurant have a take-out from their sister site. Have a seat outside while you wait for your food to be cooked fresh. On a sunny day in Torquay, right here by the harbour you could be anywhere in Europe, the south of France or the Med watching the palm trees sway gently in the breeze. Then, when your fish has been cooked to perfection you can either take it home or to your hotel or wander round the harbour eating as you go. Whatever you do, you will enjoy Shandiz fish n chips or one of their pizzas or burgers.

Welcome to Drift Inn and Kiss nightclub.Situated conveniently across the road from Paignton train station, Drift Inn has been open since the end of July under the family run guidance of Wendy and Danny Philpott. The pub’s motto which hangs on the wall reads, ‘drift in as a stranger, sail away as friends’ and it’s fair to say that the ambience and laid back, chilled-out nature of the place
does their motto justice.
The pub is open from 11.00am every morning serving breakfast and keeps serving food right up until 9.00pm every night. The bar is licensed from 11.00am until 11.00pm everyday except Fridays and Saturdays when it’s open until 4.00am and doubles up as Kiss the nightclub’s chill-out room. Basically come up the stairs and turn right at the top and you’re in Drift Inn pub and restaurant.
Come up the stairs and turn left and you’re in Kiss the nightclub on a Friday and Saturday night from 10.00pm-4.00am (it’s FREE entry and the bar prices are the same as the pub).
The food is typically British pub grub cooked to a higher standard than normal. The menu is compact and features steaks and burgers, paninis and kids meals with a daily selection of specials on offer. Drift Inn has a full Sky Sports package which means there’s no excuse to miss your favourite football, rugby or cricket team play and as they open up the nightclub for big games it means you can fit up to 450 of your mates in as well! Keep your eyes peeled for special deals and offers when live Sky Sports games are on so keep checking back for details.
Danny, Wendy & Dave can put on functions for up to 100 people for your special occasion be it a wedding anniversary, christening or special birthday surprise. The whole place really does bring something new and fresh to Paignton whether it’s the pub and restaurant or the nightclub experience so be sure to pop in soon and check them out.
