The Babbacombe Inn Torquay

About Us

Winner of many awards for their spectacular gardens, The Babbacombe Inn sits on Babbacombe Downs and enjoys one of the most fabulous views around. With a large bar, separate air conditioned restaurant and comfy entertainment lounge, it's a great location to meet up with friends and family.
At the Babbacombe Inn you can have a light lunch, grills, steak, burgers, fish, curry or classic pub favourites such as Steak and Ale Pie. With scrumptious starters and delicious desserts, the Babbacombe Inn is the prefect choice for a bite (or two) to eat. The drinks selection is good too with loads of local ales and a great range of wines and spirits. Whatever your tipple, the Babbacombe Inn is bound to have it in stock.
The Babbacombe Inn has free car parking on site, welcoming staff and is in a fabulous location away from the town centre. Traditional roast lunch is on offer every Sunday – it's a favourite with the locals though, so you might want to book.
Located just yards away from Babbacombe Theatre the Babbacombe Inn is the ideal location for a pre show meal or after show drink.

There's also music in the relaxing Babbacombe Inn Entertainment Lounge every Saturday night with plenty of opportunity to get up on the dance floor.
