On December 1st we had lunch here and were surprised at the extensive menu. The service from the staff was exceptional (even though they became very busy with a large group wanting to be seated together) and the meals were quicker than expected and hot. Overall we will be eating here whenever we visit Torquay (approx every 4 months). Right... More

This is quite a popular place to eat and drink. We sat and had a drink with the view to eating lunch here. However, on browsing the menu we found that it was quite pricey with nothing to write about that was special really. In respect that we didnt know what we were paying for that was particularly special. When... More

Popped in early doors on Saturday for a few drinks. Most enjoyable atmosphere and very relaxing. Good selection of drinks available. Everyone welcome including children. Even free wifi while drinking.

Went to Offshore on a Tuesday night for some drinks after dinner on our first night in Torquay after a long drive. There was live music on which was great and the staff were really cool and friendly. A great laid back bar to chill in any night of the week and made us feel very welcome xxxx

Welcoming polite staff, especially Owen who was very accommodating with my 4 year old daughter. Nicely presented food and good selection of wines and beers.

Waited ages to be served indoors at the bar. Female member of staff said 'I won't be a minute' - a few minutes later another family came in and she proceeded to serve them! Bored looking male staff member then arrived at the bar and asked 'can I help you?'. I told him that I was shocked at having to... More

We have been here a few times to eat and we've never been disappointed. Food is excellent. Staff a bit grumpy, and I found it chilly in there.
