Restaurant and lounge bar

Following the latest Government advice for the hospitality sector, we will be opening our restaurant and lounge bar on 4 July too. To keep you safe and to allow all guests the opportunity to enjoy these facilities, we will be practicing social distancing and introducing new ways to use these.

New measures include one-way systems, lunch in the restaurant will be on a first come, first served basis, available from 12pm - 4pm and breakfast is served between 8am and 10am and is only for hotel guests. You will be required to reserve you table for dinner, available between 5pm to 8pm. Hotel guests can reserve tables prior to arrival. You can do this here. The restaurant will also have capacity restrictions. We’re lucky at Gara Rock, our remote coastal location means we have lots of outdoor space for you to make the most of. Whether that’s walking the South West Coast Path, visiting neighbouring towns like Salcombe or spending time on the beach below the hotel, you won’t find yourself in close proximity to others.

Our restaurant also benefits from a terrace, so you can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat here too and the Garavan will be open from 11am - 3pm on weekends.

Please note that we will only be accepting contactless payments at Gara Rock, so please be prepared for this when settling up before you leave. This is to limit the contact between you and our staff.

Swimming pools, gyms & spa

The outdoor swimming pool will open from 11 July and the indoor pool from the 25 July. Our spa will hope to re-open from in 14 July. We are working hard to ensure that we fully comply with the government guidance of the safe opening of these facilities. 

Locals and walkers welcome

A stop at Gara Rock is popular with locals and walkers, so you will be pleased to know that the Garavan will be open from 10am, if you fancy a quick break for a chilled or hot drink and snack. You are also welcome to join us in the restaurant, this is operating on a first come, first served basis for lunch but you will need a reservation to dine with us in the evening. This can only be booked on the day. Breakfast is only available to hotel guests.

Thanks for your cooperation, together we can ensure you have the lovely, relaxing stay, you’ve come to expect at Gara Rock.

Not long now until we see you again!
