Less than 5 minutes walk from Torquay harbour, the Griffin Bar is situated in the basement of the Yardley Manor Hotel. The walls were actually the foundations for Torquay Winter Gardens built in 1878. It wasn't successful and, believe it or not, the whole building was shipped by barge to Great Yarmouth and is still in use today! Fortunately they left the foundations and you can admire these while you enjoy the real ales and wines in the Griffin bar. The hotel was refurbished in 2020 in an art deco style as a tribute to Agatha Christie who was born in Torquay.
