Enjoyed a great cream tea. Nicely served, staff had smiles on their faces! Very reasonably priced. We liked the look of the ham, egg and chips too, but didn't sample them. The venue is also used for private parties and there was an excellent Christmas lunch and dinner offer advertised.

My grandad doesn't get out much but he was feeling good this day and we said we would go get a bite to eat. The food is fresh and the chips are to die for. Really enjoyed it.

We use this restaurant a lot, and have never been disappointed. The food is great, well cooked good produce, and the very best chips in Torbay! It is a cosy sort of place and the waiting staff are always friendly and helpful. In fact we were there for lunch yesterday with the family (6 of us) and everything was exactly... More

Huge cream tea, friendly staff and good value for money. The only negatives were that it does not take debit cards, is very dated inside and full of old people.

I took myself out to lunch at the Middle Room, even though I live just round the corner in Cary Park. I had a pork chop marinated in cider, roast potatoes and some of the bestest crunchiest vegetables ever. It was wonderful, and exactly what I wanted. I think I might become a regular, even if I have to come... More
