The New Quay Hotel is older than the quay, dating from the late 18th century when it replaced an earlier building.

Pearson, A., 1985, Visitor's Guide to Teignmouth, South Devon, 83 (Monograph). SDV300876.

Late 18th century. Recently a sealed-off room was discovered. The daughter of previous licensees found many things which linked the room to smuggling.
