I'm not if they've changed their telephone number but I've left two messages on their 01803 322664 and been totally ignored! LOOK AFTER YOUR LOCALS PEPPERCORN!

Maybe before you write a review it would be a good idea to do some research, as a local this wouldn't exactly be difficult.To put you in the picture we sold this restaurant in April. The purchasers have not reopened as yet, only they know why. We had 8 happy years at Peppercorn and the reviews we received shows that... More

We visited for Valentines night and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious. I had a steak and my girlfriend had duck breast and they were both cooked to perfection and very tasty with a good selection of vegetables. The starters and desserts were lovely too. We will definitely visit again sometime. Thanks for a fantastic meal!

A return visit to this lovely little gem of a restaurant. The food is always cooked to perfection and there are always some surprise dishes on the 'Specials' board. Ken & Becky are excellent hosts and I only wish that I lived nearer to enable me to make the visits to this superb restaurant more frequent.

This restaurant is worth finding!! On the main road through Babbacombe, only five minutes from Torquay, with parking on both sides of the road just outside. It is small but the food and service excel. All our food was perfectly cooked, fresh fish, enormous fillet steak, beautiful sauces and a lovely selection of perfectly cooked vegetables, oh, and desserts to... More

A lovely couple, great food, salmon in a peppercorn sauce and steak in a merlot and mushroom sauce. It was a special meal to celebrate our Silver Wedding and it was a great evening.
