About Us

Nestled at the base of the leafy Wellswood area in Torquay, The Kents is a family friendly pub with a reputation for excellent food.
Less than one mile from Torquay Harbour side and 500meters from Kents Cavern, this popular pub offers a range of lunchtime and evening meals, Real Ales, wines by the glass and a full range of lagers.
Pull up a chair by the fire, recline into the cosy sofas or relax in the spacious beer garden which is a perfect sun trap on a warm day; attentive and friendly staff will make you feel welcome.

Gastro Dining

Here at the Kents we offer high quality food using local produce. Our team of chefs are all about preparing our food freshly, and sourcing our produce from a variety of farmers and growers in the South West region.

Dining is relaxed in all areas of the pub, from the bar area to the restaurant and our sunny beer garden. Our main menu is offered throughout the day or you can enjoy a small lunchtime snack with our lunch menu.

Locally Sourced

All of our ingredients are sourced locally where possible. The fruit and vegetables used in our restaurant mainly come from within 20 miles of Torquay and our beefsteaks are from grass-pastured West-Country cows.
