A Gem in Devon

This is a great little hotel nestling in Devon. Perfection is what they strive for and perfection is what you get.

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.

Had dinner here last night. Food as reliable as always, locally sourced and delicious. Very decent wine list. All things considered it is a bit of a bargain. Well done Matt.

Such a beautiful day made even more special by an excellent lunch at the Lewtrenchard Manor. All praise to the chef and his team as well as to the young ladies who waited on the guests and of course to Mr & Mrs Murray.This is a property that seemed to lend itself to an Easter Sunday!

This restaurant has no Michelin star but in my humble opinion it's not far off. Ok, perhaps it lacks the 'finesse' of Gidleigh Park, but nearly every dish we had was excellent. Starters of lobster/ crab risotto and scallops could not be bettered. My partner loved the citrus roasted cod and I was happy ( although not knocked out) by... More

I've just returned from a two night stay here. The whole experience was wonderful but the food is worthy of particular mention and accolades. We had dinner here both nights of our stay as well as breakfast and afternoon tea one day. All of the food was stunning. Imaginative without being pretentious. Delicious, surprising, modern, exquisite. An immensely talented team... More
