Tried to think of a fault over the 4 times we went while staying in Torquay but could not do so. If you are looking solely for the normal "pub grub" type of food this is not for you. The menu is extensive, a bit...More

The fleet walk is the nearest as its pedestrianised. Just take a slow walk. It's not too far away and will be worth it When you get there. Great food and surroundings.

Fleet walk car park is the nearest one to the Rock Garden. No parking in town as it's pedestrianised. Great food. Enjoy.

Rock Garden only opened a few years ago but has established itself as the place to be. This is due in part to our delicious food of either freshly made pizzas cooked in Torquays only wood burning stone oven or our legendary burgers & juicy steaks. However we have so much more then just that ranging from salads to sandwiches, soups & stews as well as Fajitas & Fish! We also have a separate Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten free menu as well as options for children. As expected all our food is freshly made, locally sourced & prepared on the premises. Rock Garden also has the largest outdoor space in Torquay town. The garden has to be seen to be believed, during the summer you can soak up the sun while enjoying our food, jugs of Pimms one of our amazing cocktails. In the evening the Rock Garden really comes into its own having fantastic live music every night of the week! Acts cover music from Ed Sheeran & Bruno Mars to Motown and The Beatles as well as acoustic versions of famous pop songs
