The Elephant was the first restaurant in Torquay to be awarded a Michelin star which it maintains today.  We aim to source all our ingredients locally, many from our dedicated farm in Brixham.

Run by chef proprietor, Simon Hulstone and his wife Katy, the restaurant overlooks the beautiful Torbay harbour.

Diners in the Brasserie can enjoy a delicious menu of local and sustainable fish, meat and vegetables, sourced from the surrounding area, in an informal and attractive setting.

The Room offers Michelin starred food and service without the formalities.

All our dishes change regularly depending on which locally grown and reared (many sourced from our dedicated farm) ingredients are at their best.


Simon Hulstone, chef proprietor at The Elephant, is an award winning chef with a talent for using local, seasonal produce to create memorable flavours. Since the age of 16, he’s been competing (and winning) competitions around the world. Simon has represented his country on more than 20 occasions, twice in the world’s most prestigious culinary contest, the Bocuse d’Or.

Among some of his other accolades are the Craft Guild of Chefs’ National Chef of the Year 2008, the Roux Scholarship in 2003, Captaincy of the English and British Culinary teams and New Zealand Young Chef of the Year.

Simon has worked with some of Britain’s most respected chefs including his father Roger, who have all played an important part in his career and achievements. His chef mentors and experience in top competitions have given Simon a passion for great ingredients and a finesse for taste and presentation which continues to win praise from critics and customers alike.

The Elephant restaurant has held three AA rosettes since 2005 and in 2006, Simon and his team won Torquay its first Michelin star, which it maintains today.
