The Clocktower Bar and Pub is Torquay’s foremost sporting venue. This is Torquay’s premier sports bar showing football, rubgy, racing, Gaelic football and just about any other sport you can think of to ask them for.
Let’s get the food out of the way. It’s made up of typical and traditional British pub grub. The kitchen opens at noon every day and serves lunch up until 6:00pm when dinner takes over and is served til around 9:30pm. There’s daily specials on offer on the board inside with room for 30 diners inside with another 52 outside.
Parking is either on street or in the local car park across the road. DON’T get caught out by the taxi rank outside like I did, which looks like it’s pay parking all day til 6:00pm then free like everywhere else. It is pay parking, then it becomes a taxi rank from 6-8:00pm and if you park there for longer than a couple of seconds you will get a ticket.
There we go, that’s that sorted, now for the sport and the drinking. The pub serves from 11:00am until 1:00am pretty much 7 days a week except Sunday. The bitters change regularly and you can pay by cash or card.
This is a pub that welcomes rugby teams, stag parties and the like. Make sure you give the manager a ring first and he’ll lay something on for you FREE of charge whether it’s a finger buffet or sandwiches or just a little something to soak up the booze and help you have a good night and not feel too rough the next day. So if you’re playing locally or coming down for the weekend on a club jolly, get in touch and let the team at The Clocktower look after you from start to finish. There aren’t many places that actively encourage rugby teams and stag patries in the Bay so take advantage while you can.
Paignton and Torbay’s premier sports bar offering more meals, deals, specials and happy hours than you can shake a stick at.
Open (and licensed, if in need of a livener) from 8:00am for breakfasts, coffees and drinks right through the day until midnight. Food is served until late in the evening unless the football’s on and that rule applies every day. This is primarily a sports bar so if there’s a big game on don’t expect to be eating during it! However, the other 14 hours the bar is open for is just fine.
There’s all sort of grills, steaks, combos, jackets, burgers and baguettes on offer as well as a very tempting 2 meals for £11 offer on meals like cod and chips, rumps, gammons, sausage and mash and lots more. There is also a daily roast with a selection of meats

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.
