Brunel Medical Practice

St Albans Rd, Torquay TQ1 3SL, UK – 01803 312233

At 14.00 hrs I Had to speak to the receptionist at Brunel Practice St Abans road . The receptionist informed me that she would get a Doctor to call sooner rather than later. Within 30 minutes Dr H from St Mary's church contacted me . I explained my condition and he referred me to Heart& Lung Dept Torbay. Dr H was efficient, and had arranged for me to have a chest X Ray. By 17.30 that evening he contacted me leaving s message about my results and sorting out a prescription. I think that is pretty fast service😁😁🤕

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Mount Stuart Hospital

St Vincent's Rd, Torquay TQ1 4UP, UK – 01803 313881

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Currently an inpatient at Mount Stuart following surgery on Nov 1st. From the bookings office to the theatre staff the service has been exceptional, my consultants secretary has been beyond helpful, booking office efficient in every way, pre op very well informed of my Hospital journey & as for the care on the ward it has been second to none from the nurses to hca’s to the ward clerk, the nurses are angels in disguise they have gone above and beyond in their care their commitment and dedication is truly amazing they are all total superstars. Theatre staff so reassuring and supportive really made me feel at ease Lastly a massive thank you to my surgeon to say he has changed my life is an understatement so so happy with the results I have there’s no enough words in the world to describe how I feel, would recommend Mount Stuart to everyone without a second thought

I first stayed at Mount Stewart in 2013 for a hip replacements. My treatment and impression of the hospital was such that when I knew I needed the other hip replaced in 2014 I didn't hesitate to book an appointment with the same consultant there. The hospital is more like a hotel with pleasant, comfortable reception - no plastic chairs here! All the corridors were spotlessly clean - more so than some big name hotels I have stayed at. The rooms are individual with their own shower and toilet. Recently a new wing has been added with new, larger, rooms each with a large wet room and facilities that would normally be found only in the grandest hotels. The staff were all pleasant and professional, and the food all freshly prepared - no packet soups! The surgeon and anesthetist both made visits to explain exactly what was to be done and check that I understood so I felt very confident that I would receive the best of care. Aftercare was excellent and the Physiotherapists were very efficient. In 2013 I was able to return home after 4 days and in 2014 I was well enough in just 3 - having achieved their criteria of walking the corridors and then walking unaided up and down flights of stairs! I would be totally unfair to compare this hospital with Torbay but having a choice - I would not hesitate to recommend Mount Stewart.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Torquay

Thariks Indian Restaurant & Takeaway

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.

Friendly good service and food is 10 / 10

Las Iguanas Torquay

4, Abbey Sands, Torbay Road, Torquay TQ2 5FB, UK – 01803 297053

Nice place. The staff here are very nice and the service is fairly quick. Upon entering the restaurant you will have to wait at the front to find seats, this can be a short wait dependent on what time you will go there. After that it's the same restaurant business, giving the food/ drinks menus etc. The food here is great and the cocktails are also great. Whilst it may seem a little bit expensive I believe that the quality of the food/ drinks is good enough to justify it. The waiting times are about average for a restaurant of this size. With the friendly atmosphere here as well the restaurant is a good choice for either proper family meals or just a catch up meal and drinks js with friends. I would recommend this restaurant.

We had an amazing time, food was amazing, cocktails 2 for 1. Service was brilliant, again Thankyou Jordon who served us all evening. He was quick to make changes to our large party, Cake was brought out, he even took group photo's for us. Totally Amazing evening. Would highly recommend

The Orange Tree Restaurant

14-16 Parkhill Rd, Torquay TQ1 2AL, UK – 01803 213936

I took my wife to The Orange Tree for our anniversary and I can not recommend them enough. So very welcoming and the place is immaculate. We had starter and a main but didn't have enough room for dessert. The food was amazing and presented so beautifully it was hard to dive in but ohh so with it. It was our anniversary and they kindly helped us celebrate by presenting us with a beautiful plate designed with harts and happy anniversary, this just made our day. Thank you all at The Orange Tree we will be back next time we are in Torquay.

Highly recommended! My wife and I celebrated holiday in Torquay in style at the Orange Tree. Service was a nice relaxed pace to allow each course of the tasting menu to be savoured and reflected on. Well chosen combination of textures and flavours to delight the palate. Atmosphere was welcoming and we felt treated as individuals, not just another 'cover'. Will definitely return here when next in the Torbay area

Nursery and Preschools

Hatfield Nursery

9 St Margaret's Rd, Torquay TQ1 4NW, UK – 01803 316611

Hatfield Nursery is the best Nursery in Torbay. Not only do they treat the children as family, but the facilities are absolutely fantastic. Huge outdoors area to play, soft play area indoors and lots of different rooms for each age group so that specific development is obtained for the correct age. All 3 of my children have been in Nursery here. My eldest started at 3 years old, my second child started at 2 years old and my youngest has been there since the age of 7 months (he is now 3). They also run an after school club and holiday club for older children. My children love the staff and love going here regularly. I could not find a better place for my children to be looked after and thrive while I am at work.
