The dining is delicious at this historic venue. Both of the hotel’s restaurants, Smith’s Brasserie and the Great Western Grill, have received rosettes from The AA for their inspired dishes.
At Smith’s Brasserie, you can enjoy small plates, sharing boards and mains such as seared stone bass with a chorizo and cannellini bean stew. There’s a glorious view of the River Bovey from the terrace, too, as you savor lunch on a sunny day.
Step into the Great Western Grill where the Art Deco décor echoes a bygone era and quality local ingredients are presented with flair. The chef uses the best of what is in season, from hand-dived scallops to whole roast young grouse.
The Tasting Room promises a truly exclusive event with seven courses of inventive dishes specially prepared by Executive Head Chef, Mark Budd. Select the accompanying wine flight recommended by the sommelier for the perfect bouquet per course.
For day trips, a homemade picnic can be prepared by the hotel’s award-winning kitchen, chock full of delectable bites such as half a lobster with saffron mayonnaise, sliced roast beef from South Devon, smoked duck breast and selected English cheeses.
