Pub Food with Reviews, Maps and Links to their websites


53 Torbay Rd, Paignton TQ4 6AJ, UK – 01803 551190

We ate today with our family and huge dog. We were incredibly lucky to be made so welcome. Scorching hot day and the dog was offered water and indeed given sausages and treats. Our food was promptly served and delicious. Thank you for making our day out so enjoyable will be recommending you to all our friends

Cosy, dog-friendly, good selection of beers and decent pub food fare. Not too noisy either and nice range of seating. Great spot on the high street. I keep coming back here as while it's fun to explore, it's also good to have somewhere to go that you just know is going to be a comfortable night out.

The Boathouse

Marine Dr, Paignton TQ3 2NJ, UK – 01803 665066

Super friendly service plus it's dog friendly (always nice to be able to dine with your pooch). Amazing location, right on the beach/seafront with amazing views. Lovely outdoor patio area to enjoy a nice cool drink on a hot summers day. Food was good but perhaps not up to the same amazing standard when I last visited a few years back but this wouldn't put me off returning or recommending to others.

Good location , right next to the beach , live music most weekends ,outside on the terrace if weather is good. Summer food menu is a bit basic , mainly pizzas and burgers, better out of season. Prices are what you'd expect for pub food , possibly a bit more for some items. Always seems quite busy and service is good.

The Ship

26 Manor Rd, Paignton TQ3 2HR, UK – 01803 556481

I've been visiting this chain of Pubs for many years. The Ship is usually lovely. Of all my memorable steaks I've had 3 of the top 4 have been from here. Good staff, comfortable surrounds. Excellent food at a great price. I look forward to visiting again soon.

Comfortable. Friendly staff and good food at good prices.

TJ's Restaurant by the Harbour

44 Cliff Rd, Paignton TQ4 6DL, UK – 01803 527389

Had the best meal in such along time for my wife's 40th birthday. Great location and staff were brilliant, nothing was to much trouble. Definitely will be going back to heather (chef) and her team.

We booked because of the fabulous Tapas that they did but on arrival looking at the menu... No Tapas. However the food when it came was amazing. The steak was phenomenal. I've eaten in a lot of 5 star hotel restaurants and this was equal to if not better than that. Service was a little bit slow but nothing to complain about. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Mo's Grill

The Crossways Shopping Centre, Hyde Rd, Paignton TQ4 5BL, UK – 01803 557865

Mom's Grill is situated at the bottom end of Crossways shopping centre. A great eat in or takeaway menu.. Food is top notch. In fact I will only eat here. Excellent service with a smile.. The owner Mo is a great chap.. You can eat indoors or outside with a parasol keeping you in the shade. Or you can takeaway & eat in the park like I do..

Great find. Good food at reasonable prices. Mo is a wonderful host. He knows how to make customers feel very welcome. Such a change from some other places.

Gurkha's Diner

4A Parkside Rd, Paignton TQ4 6AE, UK – 01803 551166

Excellent food, lovely staff who couldn't do enough for you. The chef even came out and asked how the food was, that's a nice touch. Highly recommended.

This place is a hidden gem. The service was excellent right from the start to finish. Food was of a good standard, even my young daughter enjoying the bespoke child friendly Nepalese dish. A nice touch from the chef coming to our table and mentioning some secret child friendly ingredients. Really pleasant experience

Chinese Restaurants serving the Paignton area

Dragon Pearl Restaurant

33 Hyde Rd, Paignton TQ4 5BP, UK – 01803 552220

Lush!! Lovely food, friendly staff. They'll change up the menu on request - crispy shredded beef in yellow bean sauce is awesome! My favourite Chinese as a Torbay local.

Lovely food. Lovely staff. Not in the busy part of town. Buffet is mindblowingly good.

Honeymoon Restaurant

31 Church St, Paignton TQ3 3AJ, UK – 01803 393999

We've been to quite a few Chinese buffets and this is one of the best. A decent selection of starters, prawn toast, chicken balls, pancake rolls, crispy duck with pancakes and chicken satay to name a few. Main courses were well catered for with chicken curry, chicken in black bean sauce, sweet and sour chicken and many others on offer. We didn't make dessert but they looked good too. We will go back before our holiday ends. Well worth a visit.

A fantastic and reasonably priced Chinese buffet restaurant. Though some of the trays were not the freshest and had some hard rice in it. But overall I would go again.

Wok's Kitchen

361 Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2BT, UK – 01803 526197

Went in and ordered. Was ready in about 5 mins. Girl on the front desk was delightful and chatty :)

Excellent Chinese, been going there over 30 years and always excellent food.

Indian Restaurants and takeaways in or near Paignton


33 Hyde Rd, Paignton TQ4 5BL, UK – 01803 551007

I like Indian food but not from here. Idid not enjoy it at all plus very expensive. I won't come here again.

Great food with a menu to suit most tastes and a chef who is flexible , good customer service with friendly, helpful staff, clean comfortable surroundings, relaxing music a great place to go on your own or with friends and family. Taste and see for yourself!

Thariks Indian Restaurant & Takeaway

379a/b Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2DJ, UK – 01803 664116

Very Nice Food and Service. Would definitely visit again.

We have eaten a takeaway of chicken tikka madras,lamb madras,mushroom fried rice and saag bahjee. Absolutely excellent, we ordered extra hot though, as previous wasn't very hot, it was tasty, hot and full of spicy flavours. Chicken was succulent. Sauce was full and rich.The saag was beautiful,full of flavour. Very very tasty Indian takeaway. The best in Paignton and we have tried quite a few of them.

East in the West

75 Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2SE, UK – 01803 269875

One of the best Indian restaurants I've ever been to...and I'm a big fan of curry! Beautiful decor, attentive and polite staff, quick service (but not too quick!) and most importantly absolutely delicious food. While this is not food you would find on the streets of Mumbai, neither is it the same old luminous slop you tend to find in most British curry houses. There is a good selection of modern Indian dishes and those we've tried have been delicious and well presented. Highly recommended.

Great food, nice atmosphere and very attentive staff make this restaurant the best Indian in the area by a long shot. Never disappointed.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

La Scala Restaurant

28 Queen's Rd, Paignton TQ4 6AT, UK – 01803 521832

I love this restaurant. Enjoyed a fabulous meal there last.night celebrating my sister’s birthday. Max is a welcoming host, and very attentive. Our table was decorated for my sister’s birthday, she was given a birthday card, and presented with a cake at the end of the meal. The food is well presented and tastes fantastic.. This is by far my favourite restaurant in Paignton.

We just had the most amazing dinner at La Scala. Max is a very attentive host and made us feel most welcome. The food was fantastic - all the dishes were well prepared and fresh. A definite favourite and highly recommended.

great food, good service, the crispy duck is a MUST EAT, would highly recommend

Really nice little restaurant, tasty food, we had a set menu and it was lovely. Friendly and helpful service, good value for money

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants


59 Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 3DT, UK – 01803 527347

Good food, great sharing tapas at reasonable prices. Food is slightly anglicised but means its really tasty and appealing to eat. Service was super. The meaty pizza was just that! Great evening!

Excellent service, good prices, fantastic food. Good atmosphere. What more could you ask for.

Sky Bar And Bistro

4-6 Hyde Rd, Paignton TQ4 5BN, UK – 01803 523177

If I'm taking the wife out I wouldn't eat anywhere else, service is great, cocktails are amazing but most of all we love the food, would recommend the chef's sticky balls.

A delight, food was lovely. Service was attentive but not overbearing.

Island Restaurant

Paignton TQ4 7ET, UK – 0844 474 2222

Decent food, fair prices. Service is okay, but the 'Indian dhal' on my jacket potato was very cold when served, had to wait about 7 mins for it to be heated up. Not the cleanest restaurant though, all the staff are quite young and don't seem to be cleaning tables but instead waiting for customers at tills even when business is quiet. Brilliant location though. There are limited vegetarian and vegan options but it's good to see some choices. Good selection of birchall specialty teas, and delicious cakes! Biodegradable packaging on sandwiches etc is good to see, they are reducing single use plastics at the zoo so they only sell cartons or cans of drinks.

Good food at reasonable prices. If Zoo is busy so is the restaurant.

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

The Coach House

32 Church St, Paignton TQ3 3AH, UK – 01803 558766

Salt of the earth landlord.. great staff... great atmosphere... banging music.. biker friendly.. real ale... what more do ya need...

Used to drink here a few decades ago when I worked in Well Street as a Y.T.S. Trainee. Friendly staff with a smile.. Snakebite & Black was my drink.. Still a popular place.. Always has lots of punters..

The Lions Monocle

56 Victoria St, Paignton TQ4 5DS, UK – 01803 445886

A wonderful niche cocktail bar. Quirky and unique in Paignton there's no other bar like it in the bay. The cocktails were nothing short of superb! Cola Cube takes me right back to my childhood. The staff are very polite and courteous with an overall personal feel. Even the barman kept coming back to our table to ensure we were enjoying the drinks and for a chat. We even asked for something that wasnt on the menu and the duly obliged and brought us some fantastic shots. Nothing but praise all round for a fantastic Cocktail bar!

Fantastic night at the lions monocle. The staff were really attentive, they made a special effort with table decorations for mine and my cousins birthday. They also served a fantastic vegan platter with vegan cupcakes. Brilliant and very tasty. The cocktails were professionally created and reasonably priced. Happy days!

The Torbay Inn

34 Fisher St, Paignton TQ4 5ER, UK – 01803 392729

Very friendly staff, nice cosy atmosphere, nice selection of ales to.

Proper two bar pub with good friendly staff. Always made welcome whether you are a local or not.
