The Wighton at Torbay has reopened with a brand new look following a complete refurbishment to emphasise its ‘warm, timeless country pub atmosphere’.

The transformation has seen a brand new Farrow & Ball colour palette introduced into the venue, alongside wall panelling and bespoke tiling. A new homely ‘snug’ section was added to the bar featuring cosy Chesterfield seating. Additionally, the al fresco dining area has been updated. The pub received an investment spend of £420,000 into its refurbishment.

Situated on the outskirts of Torquay, The Wighton at Torbay is named after one of the last Watson-class sailing lifeboats to be stationed in the area. The Wighton is a pub-restaurant serving a menu of British pub classics alongside items with a modern twist, such as home-made chicken and chorizo kebab, oven-baked garlic flatbread, crumbled feta cheese and pomegranate seed salad, honey, fruity chilli sauce and seasoned fries, antipasti boards, and soy glazed salmon.

The pub serves a variety of cocktails, a premium lager range and a large selection of G&Ts.

The Wighton at Torbay’s beer garden allows guests to drink or dine alfresco, whilst the spacious and modern interior offers a relaxed dining experience. The new look is set to elevate the pub’s interior to suit all occasions, from ‘casual lunches to special celebrations’.

The Wighton will also be hosting guests across the festive period, with a special Festive Menu on offer. The Festive Set Menu offers either 2 courses for £18.50 or 3 courses for £21.50, with dishes including Chicken Liver & Brandy Pâté, Oak Smoked Salmon, Roast Turkey (with all the trimmings),  Parsnip & Chestnut Tart, Christmas Pudding and Pear & Apple Crumble. Bookings made before 31st October will receive a £10 voucher to be redeemed in November.

With over 1,600 pubs across England, Scotland and Wales, Marston’s sites range from traditional local pubs to family-friendly pub restaurants.

Yuri Solecki, General Manager of The Wighton, said, “We are so excited to open the doors of The Wighton at Torbay and to show our guests the final result of our refresh. We have invested over £420k into breathing new life into The Wighton. The pub is much loved by its regulars, and we are so glad to see everybody back again.“
