We visited Orestone Manor for a Devon Cream Tea. it was enormous! And very delicious. The sandwiches were different fillings and the whole meal was presented very well. The location is special and the staff were friendly. I would recommend a visit for a great cream tea!

My wife and I had a anniversary dinner here. The food was absolutely delicious. I had scallops to start and Lyme Bay Ray for my main. It was absolutely stunning. The fish was cooked perfectly and just melted in your mouth. My wife had lamb for her main and goats cheese to start and they were lush too. We shared... More

We googled "best cream teas" and found ourselves at the really lovely Orestone Manor Hotel, about ten minutes' drive from Torquay near Babbacombe. We are fussy about our cream teas - we require good scones, nice tea, excellent jam and LASHINGS of clotted cream. There is nothing worse than miserly servings of clotted cream - and staff disgruntlement when you... More

This hotel/restaurant is set in a beautiful location with sea views. When we arrived we enjoyed a cocktail on the balcony in the sun. We were then taken through to the smartly done restaurant where we enjoyed the best meal we've had in a long time! This is a hidden gem to be tried!! We will be back for one... More

We ate at the hotel on both evenings. Saturday we had two courses each and Sunday three each. Total cost was £80. We felt that was great value. Saturday's service was somewhat slow, however, they appeared very busy.

This is the first time we visited Forest one manor but it will not be the last. Everything is done to a high standard. The staff ,the room, the cooking and the presentation all excellent. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and had a wonderful evening. This a restaurant that cares about customers and sets itself high standards.

We chose the Orestone Manor restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We hadn't been before, but read the reviews here on Tripadvisor and decided to have a meal there. Our first impressions were that the decor felt a little old fashioned, but we were warmly greeted and led to a seating area to browse through the menu whilst enjoying a... More
