Myself and my partner Lesley visit Torquay every couple of months to visit my son. When we can we visit the singing kettle. The welcome from Marlene and her team always warm and friendly. The food great. Real tea served. Always a great experience. Can't wait to go back. Thanks. See you soon Jason & Lesley x

Being a lacto-vegetarian the scones were off the menu. The lovely hostess offered my wife and I gluten free bread to have with our cream tea - simply delicious!

We didn't have any other meals here but all the homemade cakes looked beautiful and the tea was the best I've had in... More
