About Us

Fine dining at its very best! The multi award-winning Elephant is a two storey Michelin star restaurant, with a more informal brasserie on the ground floor and the Michelin-starred The Room on the first, overlooking beautiful Torquay harbour, where you can also enjoy a drink from the bar. Award winning chef Simon Hulstone runs the restaurant with his wife Katy and his talented team of chefs and friendly front of house staff. Simon has won multiple awards for his creative cuisine, and has represented Great Britain in prestigious competitions around the world. At the Elephant, they offer a changing menu based around local and sustainable ingredients, using the abundance of fantastic produce available in South Devon. They have a dedicated farm, based in Brixham which provides the team with delicious seasonal produce and free range chicken, lamb, pork and Kelly Bronze turkeys.
