Welcome to Shandiz, one of Torquay’s newest restaurants. Situated on the harbourside opposite the car park, with beautiful views across the harbour and beyond. What better place to relax and unwind after work or if you’re on holiday or having a day out with the kids. Kick back and let Angelina and her team serve you while you soak up the views on offer. This is a great spot for people-watching too! The restaurant is bright and airy and boasts a menu that should have something on offer for everyone’s taste whether big or small.

Breakfasts are served from 9:00am until noon and while you can have a full English you could also try smoked salmon and scrambled, poached or fried eggs on a warm muffin. Lunch is served from noon daily and seamlessly segues into dinner. All your favourites are here from a range of pizzas and burgers to steaks, paninis, jacket potatoes, salads and chicken dishes. Monkfish, plaice, haddock and sea bass are all on offer too. Dinner is served until late and the bar is licensed until midnight.

The Clocktower Bar

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 Darren 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

Check out the blackboard for the daily specials as well as all the 2 meals for a tenner options. Monday-Thursday from 4:00pm-6:00pm is steak and a pint for £8.

Driftwood Café

Joss White and Kayleigh Walsh are the new owners of Driftwood Café in St Marychurch and have tried to make the café unique in the precinct for its emphasis on quality, presentation and the difference in its menu. The café is light and airy and features a typical front of house layout with a lovely relaxing chill-out room to the rear where you can lounge away a couple of hours munching on homemade cakes, drinking a selection of teas and coffees or sampling a range of organic wines. As Joss has been the chef for the last couple of years and Kayleigh has been working out in the front of the café, it’s all change but no change here.

A daily special of a cake and a cuppa (tea or coffee) for £3.50 is available and on Saturdays why not treat yourself to 2 courses and a glass of wine or a beer for just £10. Everything is cooked freshly and prepared on the premises using locally sourced produce where possible. All dietary requirements are catered for, the cakes are all gluten-free and there are plenty of vegetarian options on the menu. Wifi is available for free so you can pick up your emails or surf the net and the cafe can be hired at any time for special occasions and events. Opening hours are Monday – Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm.

Keep your eyes peeled for their monthly one evening special dinners which have proved to be hugely popular and require booking and registration on their email list here
