After after having my account hacked over a weekend amd spending 4 hours on the phone (getting nowhere) i arrived at the Torquay branch. They where very helpful and blocked my account from future fraud however this also meant I could not use it either. However a week later and still locked out of my own account but the pending fraudulent payment where paid? Yet another visit to the branch and again they could mot be more helpful however still.not got access to my funds and now 10 days later. Thank you team in Torquay for your part in trying to resolve this for me.

Very friendly staff, open til 5 on most days, and spacious.

Smile Dental Care

135 Marldon Rd, Paignton TQ3 3NL, UK – 01803 521177

I had a very positive experience. I am a very nervous patient and was in a lot of pain and needed an extraction. Stan and his team talked me through the whole procedure and was very gentle and reassuring, my tooth was out before I knew it. I can't believe I put up with the pain for so long. Thank You Stan.

One of my best ever dental experiences; as a nervous patient of needles I opted for no pain relief, and I didn't feel a thing during fillings and broke Tooth rebuilding. Very friendly staff and hygenic practice. And the costs were very good too! Will be happy to come here again in the future! Good work Stan and the smile team. 😁

mydentist, St Marychurch Court, Torquay

2-3 St Marychurch Rd, Torquay TQ1 4TY, UK – 01803 328113

I was here with my mother today who has just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The whole team were lovely, very professional and so kind and caring towards Mum, thank you

I was a tad concerned when the service I'd used regularly for over 20 yrs moved but my worries were groundless. The new surgery is professional and well run, with terrific facilities and friendly faces. It may bigger, busier and less personal in some ways but the purpose is fulfilled and Mr Bak and his receptionist are still just as kind, considerate and helpful as ever they were before they moved. I'm not a huge fan of dentists in general but these guys make the experience quite bearable!

Chilcote Surgery

Hampton Ave, Torquay TQ1 3LA, UK – 01803 316333

At 57 I've been to several practices and this place is by far the best.

Problerly the best surgery in Torbay

Brunel Medical Practice

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

brunel medical practice was my doctors for twenty years and always treated me good. yes i had to alternate between the three surgerys.but that was so i could get seen as soon as possible. the irish lady doctor was the best one i ever had as would listen to what i had to say.cannot praise them highly enough and if i moved back to devon would enrol here again

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😁😁🤕

Parkhill Medical Practice

11 Parkhill Rd, Torquay TQ1 2AL, UK – 01803 212489

So far I found male doctors very ignorant and rude. I try to describe what's wrong with my back since spine operation, all I got was complete ignoration and paracetamol . But all the ladies staff are kind and polite

Brilliant Surgery with Kind receptionist , Wonderful Nurses, and Brilliant Doctors, They are all so helpful. Its a brilliant surgery and I think we should be grateful to all within PARKHILL practice.

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.

Torbay Hospital

Lowes Bridge, Torquay TQ2 7AA, UK – 01803 614567

After a close family member was admitted who was and is extremely Ill the treatment she was given by all areas from a+e to the assessment ward then to Turner ward has been absolutely faultless. Their attention to detail astounding and their personal one to one comfort giving exemplary. Not only the above but the comfort they have given to our family we could not find enough positive words to describe how valuable they've been. As a whole family we think you're amazing and can't thankyou enough .

Had two visits to A &E in a month, I was very impressed both times, my aunt if 91 with cancer was treated with dignity and respect with special care. My husband received excellent treatment after having an accident and breaking his arm yes we did have quite a long wait both times but this isn't the staff fault they did what they could both times. Well done teams

Community Mental Health Team

St. Lukes Rd, Torquay TQ2 5NU, UK – 01803 214597

How church should be, open and friendly to all especially the younger congregation. Fabulous

Although I am a catholic I have been to several services in this church and always found everyone very kind and courteous. Pastor John is a wonderful man and does great work there. I feel so sad the previous reviewer was disappointed as we are all Gods children.

Living Waters Pentecostal Church

358 Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2DQ, UK – 01803 552538

Wonderful morning, beautiful worship powerfull word, matchless Saviour. Thank you Church.

Skip It Torbay

Telmar House, Barton Hill Way, Torquay TQ2 8JG, UK – 01803 329444

Called and booked a skip Tuesday afternoon, this was delivered to a site in Paignton 8.30 Wednesday and collected Thursday at 10.30. What else can you ask for. We were previously using another colourful skip company in Torbayskips. They were rude and un helpful on the phone. so they lost this one and all the future skips. Thanks and a great professional service with Pleasant staff

Skip it had the best price we found, delivered and picked up promptly and professionally.

Rainbow Skip Hire

Happaway Rd, Torquay TQ2 8ES, UK – 01803 411181

Booked a skip late Tuesday and they delivered am the next day. Drivers and office staff very friendly and professional. Needed some advise on plasterboard which they gave me, another skip firm could not help me with the question. Don't have skips very often but would use these again and have told my friends and colleagues to use them. Great service Rainbow Skips. Keep up the great service!

We have had many skips from this company in the last 6 months and could not be happier with the service provided. Skips are delivered and collected promptly. Communication is great and when there have been unexpected delays we have been kept informed. Anj is always a pleasure to speak to and very professional...even when a few bits that shouldn't have gone in the skip did (sorry again). Would definitely recommend.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Torquay

The Orange Tree Restaurant

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

Best meal out in a very long time. The staff were really friendly, helpful and attentive. The restaurant was elegant and very clean. The food was quite exceptional. We had the taster menu and each course was cooked to perfection and displayed beautifully. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. If you are a fan of quality fine dining then book yourself in for a real treat.

A beautiful restaurant. The food was exceptional. On the pricey side but very much worth it.

Ephesus Restaurant Torquay

48 Torwood St, Torquay TQ1 1DT, UK – 01803 294466

Food quality is good, nice atmosphere, excellent service. Menu isn't very interesting and it's slightly over priced,.

What a truly delightful meal. How can such a small place pack such a mouthful of punch? The food was indeed an adventure, crisp to chew, munch to lick, every bite was a story to be told. Succulent, wild, exotic. I will be bAck, bossman.

Bistrot Pierre

Abbey Crescent, Torbay Rd, Torquay TQ2 5HD, UK – 01803 221213

Very busy restaurant in prime spot overlooking the town beach. On two floors and recommend getting the top floor or outside terrace. Despite being busy service was pretty slick and efficient for the most part. Wide choice on the menu and food was fresh and tasty. Portions aren't the largest but I'd prefer quality to a few extra chips. Staff all appeared to be well trained and helpful.

The food at this venue is amazing. Visited at a very busy time (it's a good idea to book!!) but the service and attentiveness was consistently first class. A group of diners adjacent to us changed their minds about where to sit three times. In spite of how busy the restaurant was, the staff quietly and politely accommodated these customers without fuss or any obvious frustration.

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.

The Abbey School

Torquay TQ1 4PS, UK – 01803 327868

Abbey School Nursery has been the perfect place for my daughter to mix with other children and to adjust to school life, and I am so very pleased with the progress that she has made in her early developmental stages. I would recommend Abbey School Nursery in Torquay to any parent looking for similar for their child.

Public & Preparatory Schools

EF Academy

E F House, Castle Rd, Torquay TQ1 3BG, UK – 01803 202932

Very good school, perfect teachers as they are always to help even if you don't have any problems, member of staff are amazing, fantastic environment. Talking about EF is actually talking about a new family and very good friends that you are going to make throughout the year. Since I came, the members of the staff have been very attentive and the students will not let you alone never at school. There are a range of culture, people from different countries with different perspectives and mindset, it is just a global environment. Strongly recommended.

I'm soon going to start my second and final year at EF Academy the school year that has just flown by has been amazing! I'm happy I chose EF and that I chose the Torbay campus, and I'm proud to be an ambassador of both. I wanted to be at an international boarding school that would allow me to be independent, and EF Academy Torbay has allowed me to do just that. As a student, I have learned in the classroom and also been inspired to stretch myself beyond that outside the classroom. I've met so many wonderful people so far and had so many wonderful opportunities as part of my school experience. If you come here there will be some things that you don't like and some things that you do, as with every school with every person. EF might not be the best fit for you but it's a great school! 😁
