Description: A beautiful Jacobean manor house deep in the Devon countryside...
A beautiful Jacobean manor house deep in the Devon countryside, Lewtrenchard Manor offers luxury dining in a sublime setting. Dating back to the 1600s, the Manor has an interesting and varied history, a fact that can be seen in every nook and cranny throughout the hotel and dining rooms. One of the finest restaurants in the county, the Lewtrenchard Manor restaurant is overseen by Chef Patron Jason Hornbuckle who learned his trade under the watchful eyes of some of London���s most respected chefs in high quality city establishments. Here, Hornbuckle has enthusiastically created a menu that makes the most of the best Devonshire produce available while employing the methods and flavour combinations of chic modern European cuisine, earning the restaurant three AA Rosettes. Lively and relaxed, Lewtrenchard Manor is a superb place in which to indulge in the very best food and, indeed, delightful wines from the extensive cellar of old and new world labels.

Matthew Peryer and his team run a great restaurant, serving delicious dishes made with local seasonal ingredients, that are both hearty and classic but somehow also very modern - a true talent.

We came again for lunch. Nice to see the restaurant a bit busier on a Monday. The food was just as good and the service relaxed, friendly and efficient.
