Ever since we opened our doors to the public in the 1930’s, our restaurant has received the highest of praise. We welcome you to experience the quality food and friendly atmosphere.

Using fresh produce and a unique flair, our local resident chef’s have became famous in the local area for serving up imaginative dishes and varied menus.

Make no mistake about it, the restaurant here at The Hotel Balmoral is a place to tantalise your taste buds and enjoy good company in pleasant surrounding. Don’t settle for anything less when you are visiting Torquay.

Five Course Meals

It wouldn’t be a fine dining experience without a five course meal served by our trained waiting staff. After a day sightseeing around Torquay, you will no doubt just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy the comfort only a good meal can bring.

Not only that, but we also add in little extras to make your dining experience with us even more special, with things such as a west country cheese board and complementary tea and coffee.

Restaurant open from 6:45pm – 8pm

Local Produce

Torquay is well known for having some of the best local produce in the country, unlike many of the other hotels in the area, we source all of our eggs direct from local farms and use family butchers in the Devon area. Our chef’s make sure you only get the freshest of fish, straight from Brixham fish market to your plate, just how nature intended.

Beautiful Views

The Hotel Balmoral is situated in the conservation area of Meadfoot, about 10 minutes from Torquay town centre and right next to a stunning secluded beach just below our large garden.

For this reason, you can expect to be greeted with a beautiful view on most of our tables in the restaurant, so you will experience all of the delights Torquay has to offer while enjoying your meal.

Friendly Atmosphere

We are very proud of the fact that many of the people who stay in our hotel are returning guests. With this in mind, expect to be greeted with a relaxed and warm atmosphere in the restaurant, and it often feels like dining with friends and family, even if you are alone.

Special Occasions

Because our hotel restaurant is open all year round, there are many different special occasions we like to cater for. As an example, during Christmas we offer a traditional 8 course festive meal with all the trimmings. We also regularly cater for small to large functions and group bookings, please enquire direct on 01803 293381 with your requirements.
