Full description

Harbour Fish Cafe is located on Victoria Parade overlooking Torquay's inner harbour, which is situated between the town centre and Beacon Quay forming part of the outer harbour. The inner harbour area has a vibrant feel and has benefited from continued investment over the last decade, re-establishing this part of the town as the heart of Torquay. Together with Brixham and Paignton, Torquay is one of the three towns that make up the English Riviera. Torquay is located on the South Devon coast, between the larger urban areas of Plymouth and Exeter. Torquay has been one of the UK's top holiday destinations since Victorian times and continues to attract visitors all year round. The town is approximately 21 miles from the City of Exeter, which is linked by the M5 to Bristol and beyond.

Harbour Fish Café is a popular Licensed Fish & Chip Café which operates seasonally to suit the present owners. The premises has the benefit of a large glass frontage with bi-folding doors, bringing the outdoors in, plus 'Al Fresco' seating for approximately 50, giving customers the opportunity to enjoy the stunning view across the harbour and Torbay.
