Elephant - Torquay

3-4 Beacon Terrace, Torquay, Devon, TQ1 2BH
Find this excellent upstairs restaurant set in a terrace of smart Georgian houses. The building now has a choice of two restaurants - both excellent in their own way. The Elephant Brasserie, on the ground floor, and the more ambitious 'The Room at the Elephant' - on which we'll concentrate here, as it's near the top of the West Countries culinary league..

Fish features prominently, as does local seasonal game; but food is locally-sourced whenever possible -from the best possible sources.

So expect to find Brixham Crab and Start Bay Scallops among the offerings. The latter might come with Spanish Morcilla and a Salt Cod Croquette and a Cauliflower and Almond Purée. The former in Tortellini with Langoustine and Lemongrass Cream.

Main courses might include 'Sea Bass with Truffled Savoy Cabbage and Scampi Tortellini'; 'Pork with a Langoustine and Squid Risotto'; 'Rump of Cornish Lamb with a Fricassee of Wild Mushrooms, Braised Chicory and Roast Onion Foam' and 'Grey Mullet with Avocado Purée'

Perhaps finish with 'Wild Berry and Champagne Jelly'; 'Dark Chocolate and Malt Tart' or in summer months 'Warm Tansy Pudding with Sweet Cicely Ice Cream and Lemon Verbena Coulis'.
