Welcome to The Elephant Restaurant & Brasserie

The Elephant is a two storey restaurant with the more informal brasserie on the ground floor and the Michelin starred, The Room on the first. The Elephant was the first restaurant in Torquay to be awarded a Michelin star which it maintains today.  We aim to source all our ingredients locally and sustainably, many from our dedicated farm in Brixham. Please feel free to ask our front of house team about anything you are unsure of.

Run by chef proprietor, Simon Hulstone and his wife Katy, the restaurant overlooks the beautiful Torbay harbour.

Diners in the Brasserie can enjoy a delicious à la carte menu and set menus featuring local and sustainable fish, meat and vegetables, sourced from the surrounding area, in an informal and attractive setting.

Diners in The Room will be served our Michelin starred tasting menu. Expect friendly and knowledegable service without the formalities.

All our dishes change regularly depending on which locally grown and reared (many sourced from our dedicated farm) ingredients are at their best.

Seasonal updates from the farm

Debs our Guru Gardener has always loved the sunshine and up at the farm she has even more reason to enjoy the long, warm days – sun-kissed, tasty ingredients.  As you will see from her blog, we are already seeing some wonderful produce and we are all looking forward to when the delicious heritage tomatoes are ready for picking!
