Jet Set@The Elephant, Torquay

The Elephant Restaurant, Torquay

On Wednesday 14th May the 'Manchester Jet Set', a group of friends who had been at Manchester University together and who meet up every year in a seaside resort with a pier, enjoyed a very good meal at the brasserie of The Elephant Bar & Restaurant in Torquay. Not only was the food excellent but we were also very impressed by the service, particularly from James who was only on his first shift at the restaurant.
