“Wedding Blessing Aug 2013”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

I booked a wedding blessing reception at the Chelston Manor Hotel Torquay end of August 2013. Would like to say what an amazing time we had, the food was wonderful, the care and attention we had was first class. The team at the Chelston have not bee there very long but how they have turned the place around. Nothing was to much trouble, they pushed the boat out for my husband and I and our guests who are still talking about the wonderful day they had. There was even a bouncy castle for the children outside in the garden, special,diets not a problem, I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a party of any kind, just what Chelston needs a breath of fresh air, said a personal thank you to the team they deserve to do well and be supported, so get down there and see what they are doing, we wish them well for the future. What a wonderful experience, Many many thanks to all the team down there keep going we need you, we will be back in the future.

We have just returned from the Chelston Manor, having been treated by friends. Carla normally has a poor appetite, but the food was so good that she nearly cleared her plate. We all had the Sunday roast, and I give it 10/10 the plates were hot and the meals piping hot, and we all ate too much. Absolutely superb, Thank you to all the staff and will see you next Sunday at Ann's birthday party

We have not been back to Chelston Manor for a while,so on Saturday we invited a couple of friends from Paignton to join us.
We were made very welcome on arrival and shown straight to our table,very good atmosphere, lots of smiling faces and when we had our food served we knew why!! . Well presented, good portions and VERY tasty. Thank you for a supper evening

Reopened again! There was a limited menu when we had a meal, The food was good, and the service was OK.. The new landlord / landlady needs to engage with the locals a bit more, I would suggest. This is essentially a local pub that needs a lot of support if it is to survive. Time will tell..

Chelston Manor has recently reopened under new management
We have had the pleasure of having the Sunday carvery lunch,and it is VERY good value for money. The property has had a facelift,and is very welcoming,as are the staff.
Give it a try, you wont be sorry.

Its the day after going to Chelston Manor after attending a friends wedding celebrations there. I so feel for the bride and groom. I think its disgusting that a couple that have paid an establishment to host their celebrations there have to put up with football coverage on the TV in the function room competing with the DJ, which they also paid out for. After making several complaints to the man in charge,also with several guests actually switching the tv off themselves, the locals won and the football stayed on for the entire match, extra time and penalties too !!! With the owner looking on with enthusiasm. My biggest regret is that Im not local and therefore cant spread the word by mouth to everyone I know never go there.

Dear Starchypig,

Thank you for your post! However, I think that you should confirm the facts before going on a error strewn rant.

Firstly, the bride and groom did not pay to hire the venue although they did pay for the DJ.
The majority of the guests requested the football on the television; with the groom originally saying it would be ok. The match was put back on as there weren't any wedding guests in the room (which is not a function room merely an extension of the bar). And during extra time and penalties the majority of the guests were watching the match.
Secondly, no complaints were directed to me regarding the football and yes I did watch some of the penalties along with the other guests.
Perhaps the alcohol you consumed that day clouded your memory of the events or maybe you are a Spurs fan!!
