Fathers Day Sunday Lunch. Great atmosphere, all staff courteous and polite. Great 3 course selection with old fashioned silver service. A credit to the Corbyn Head Hotel and Torquay. A great occasion spent with three generations of family with a wonderful panoramic view of Torbay.

Marvellous food and location but very tired looking decor. We found the food excellent in every way. The service was enthusiastic but rather amateurish and the ambience very ordinary. There was no getting away from the fact that however good the food was it was...More

Going to the orchid is like stepping back 40 yes. Needs redecorating and bringing into the 21st century. Food was okay but nothing special and not worth the money. View is unbeatable though but not enough to make us go back.
