Location and contact

The Bull and Bush in Torquay is situated just a short walk from the beach in the hustle and bustle of the main bed and breakfast district in the bay. We offer a warm, friendly environment to relax, eat and enjoy the drinks we have on offer. Our menu has a huge selection of delicious traditional pub classics including hand-battered fish and chips and many more. Come by and visit our lovely beer garden, it's the ideal location to chill out and enjoy the sea air in this beautiful coastal holiday location. Order a proper pint of cask ale, refreshing glass of wine, one of our spirits or a soft drink, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Your whole family is welcome at the Bull and Bush in Torquay; we look forward to welcoming you soon.
