3 Women Run Successful UK Restaurant for 8 Years

I recently took a Summer break to the lovely town of Torquay, Devon. For those of you who don't know, Torquay is part of Torbay, which is commonly known as the English Riviera. Despite the UK's infamous awful weather, we do on occasion get a sunny day or two, and when we do there is no place better to enjoy it than down there. 

To get a better look of what Torquay looks like, take a look at the music video for Metronomy's song "The Bay" - a worldwide hit about the town. 

During my trip I was fortunate enough to get a taste of the local cuisine, and one of my favourite places to eat was a cheerful little restaurant and bar called Below Decks.

Firstly, the restaurant has an unbelievable location on Torquay's harbour. On a nice day, the sea view is one of the best, if not the best in the whole town. There's an indoor and outdoor seating area so weather isn't an issue.

As well as having extensive food and drink menus, Below Decks regularly host musicians and bands from the local area. 

Being a regular visitor to the restaurant on my holiday, I also got to know more about how Below Decks became the successful place it is today.

For the past 8 years, the restaurant/bar has been owned by three women. Adele Farrell, Gayle Bettesworth and Michelle Farrell are three sisters (Michelle through marriage) who have worked extremely hard over the past few years to turn Below Decks into the successful restaurant it is today. There are also a number of family members who work for the restaurant, giving it a comfortable family feel. 

Not only do the sisters run Below Decks, but they also have another restaurant in the town and a post office. 

Keep up the good work ladies!
