If you are visiting the Torbay area then you must visit this small bistro restaurant situated in the village of St Mary Church (approx 2 miles from Torquay harbour). The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team, with Hazel being the face of the front of house and her husband, Gordon, freshly preparing and cooking food to order.... More

The restaurant itself is small, quirkily decorated, and is full of character. What I liked particularly was the welcome from Hazel, who greeted us like family friends rather... More

We visited for the first time at the weekend but it will not be the last. The restaurant is very compact but we liked this as the service was first class.

This is the first time I have ever posted a review on Tripadvisor and I am delighted that this superb restaurant breaks my duck. We found Memories because of its amazing TA reviews and they do it justice in every way Every single mouthful of our meals - starter, main course and dessert - was delicious. Wine was also excellent,... More
