This fine-dining beauty remains Torquay's premier foodie destination – and the proud possessor of a Michelin star. Chef Simon Hulstone's taste for seasonal food, prime Devon ingredients and elaborate presentation is firmly in evidence, with dishes such as smoked vodka sea trout gravlax, hake with eel butter, and rhubarb with champagne jelly.

The eight-course tasting menu (£68) is a treat; match it with wine for an extra £29.
