Restaurant description

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 restaurant was lovely warm and friendly. The food was perfect and very tasty. Only one bad thing there is a very steep hill to get there and it’s very tricky to get back up if your driving and it’s wet.

    Went to celebrate my friend’s 70th birthday and the experience was all that she could have wished for. Nice attentive but not over the top service. Food delicious, crab, prawns, mussels fresh and yummy. Requested a window seat, given without issue and even gave a complimentary drink for the birthday girl. Homemade fudge with coffees also very tasty. Will definitely be back.

    I’m afraid it was mediocre at best . The service was average , queuing at the bar for food when it’s an expensive meal when you’re sat in the restaurant is just nuts you’re not a cheap place to eat . When I voiced this to the gentleman when I paid the bill he seemed shocked at the mere mention that I was less than delighted . The meal for 3 of us cost £85 and one was a child ! We won’t be back I’m afraid
