Meadfoot Beach, Torquay Reviews

  • Amazing Place!!!!! Such a valuable installment for the local community.

  • Food is good, but since the new owners have taken over, sorry to say the service is glacial particularly when busy, hence I have not been in a while. Hopefully it will improve as they aquire more experience. Still the best views in the Bay.

  • Enjoyed a nice coffee and cake on a Sunday walk friendly staff stunning view!!

  • There is little selection of food available and this food is medeocre at best. Adding this to the disgusting seating area makes this place a whole lot worse. They get 1 extra star for the great sea view.

  • Great location good food and drink friendly staff fair price.
