Excellent place to eat. Fab homemade soup. Filling sandwiches and much more to choose from. Tea served properly in china cups, with pots and a strainer! Was told to let tea brew for 3 minutes and was given an egg timer to do so!!

We were more than impressed with the wonderful staff and service at The Singing Kettle. We were staying Rainbow International and just called in after our walk through the park.I was able to take my mobility scooter right up to our table via a disabled access adjoining via the hotel car park next door.
A great choice of food available and we thoroughly enjoyed our farmers tea.
we will definately be visiting again when in Torquay.

This is the second time I have visited The Singing Kettle whilst visiting Torquay. I was visiting with my 2 daughters,one who is a fussy eater,one who will eat almost anything and myself,a Coeliac needing a Gluten free diet. We were staying at the Premier Inn but chose to eat all of our meals here.
We had full English breakfasts,Cream Tea's, Jacket Potatoes, Burgers, and Cakes. Including the Gluten free versions and we did not have a single bad meal,
Staff are friendly and obliging. I saw the staff using separate utensils for the Gluten free selection to avoid cross contamination which I thought was fabulous.
This little place is a Coeliac's dream.
Thanks to all the lovely staff for making us feel welcome and full !!

Excellent service from both owners and staff. The cream teas come with a gluten-free option and both taste superb. The scones arrive warm with a generous helping of clotted cream and jam. It's a great place to sit out on a sunny day and watch the world go by whilst enjoying the great food. Would certainly recommend a visit and will definitely be visiting again.
