The food was first class. We had a three-course meal and a selection of local cheeses which were all very tasty. The food was gastronomic. The location , scenery and views are amazing and the staff friendly and smily. Highly recommended to visit when you're in Torquay.

Perched on the picturesque Torquay coastline, Cary Arms is a charming rustic English countryside pub and hotel. Seconds from the beach, this gastropub serves a selection of luxurious dishes made with seasonal ingredients, with a focus on fresh seafood caught in the sparking blue waters right outside.

Gourmet British and European flavours feature on the Cary Arms menu, starting off with seafood delicacies like the half pint of shell-on prawns, served with tomato salsa and dill mayonnaise. Hearty home-style favourites include chicken, leek and mushroom pie with dauphinoise potatoes, seasonal vegetables and red wine jus, and succulent tastes from the grill can be found in the fillet of west country beef with onion rings, mushrooms, chips, bacon and peppercorn jus.

Luxurious desserts at Cary Arms in Torquay include treats such as lemon and thyme drizzle cake with lemon curd and clotted cream, as well as inventive creations like coconut cream pudding with mango and chilli salsa and passionfruit sorbet. There is a fine whisky selection with single malts from across Scotland, and a wine list filled with expertly selected vintages.

A stunning coastal setting for gourmet recipes, Cary Arms is housed in the same building as a luxury spa. Central Torquay is just a 9-minute drive away.

    The food is amazing and couldn’t fault it! The service however was not to the same standard! Yes we were a large table of 8 and yes we had a few members that turned up a little later than planned but when the waiter came over at 7 (this was the first time I’d seen him since arriving at 6:10) he was extremely rude complaining that we would have to start ordering soon as we were running over which we were perfectly fine with but for that to be the first impression of the waiter for our table was not a good one! When the rest of the group turned up about 5 mins after he disappeared we made our orders and everything was fine however, not once did they check on us to see if our food was ok or if we needed anything else and then took forever to clear our table! We had to wait till we could catch someone to ask for the bill so we could leave! After being recommended to this place by someone it was a shame to be so disappointed in their service! Not sure I’d want to go back and if I did it would only be because the food was amazing!

    The food was really great. The atmosphere was relaxed. We were a bit confused about the service and felt a bit overlooked when given a desert menu, but then no-one came to take the order. The place needs a bit of a face lift.

    The restaurant was fabulous they even managed to squeeze in 3 extra guests. The staff were very friendly helpful and attentive and even procured gluten free bread for my wife! The food was first class and cooked to perfection A thoroughly enjoyable experience. We will definitely be going back again and soon I hope! Thank you Cary Arms!

    A fabulous sunday roast as always. Not keen on the live singer as it was just too loud. Without a microphone in this relatively small space would have been fine. Brilliant staff and fantastic spot overlooking the bay.
