Gara Rock RestaurantDistance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 9.8 miles
The Hotel will reopen on Saturday 4th July along with the restaurant and lounge bar. Lunch in the restaurant will be available on a first come, first served basis but you will be required to reserve a table for dinner, which you can do here. This will apply whether you are a resident or non-resident. The Garavan outisde will be open from 10am daily for hot / cold drinks and snacks. Unfortunately the swimming pools, gyms and spa will remain closed for the time being.
Anyone who has visited Gara Rock can tell you that our views are magnificent, whether you love watching winter storms or admiring a summer sunset across the bay. At The Restaurant, you can gaze out through floor to ceiling windows while tasting delicious, locally-sourced food prepared by our talented staff. We pride ourselves on friendly, down to earth service in a relaxed atmosphere.
Spending the day at the beach? Why not pick up a pasty at The Garavan. If the weather's not great, hunker down in the bar.
The essence of food at Gara is based on locally sourced produce, dictated by the seasons. Though the menu is never going to be huge, what’s on offer will always be local, fresh and the ingredients will stand alone. We cannot do this by ourselves. We believe in true collaboration between our chefs and our suppliers to create a heightened awareness of which ingredients are going to be best at any given moment of the UK calendar year. The focus on seasonality means that we can also reduce food miles and therefore our carbon footprint.
"Expect carefully-crafted and beautifully-executed dishes in a once in a lifetime setting."
Our chef team are avid foragers. This fact will be evident both on our menu and in our homemade cordials at The Bar. We also offer some fantastic local wines and ales. We are sure you will love our simple but beautiful food, delicately prepared and served by our dedicated team in this dining room on a cliff.
