Unlike many reviewers our previous experience of Soyer's, as it used to be called, was poor with a highly priced indifferent meal. We were pleased therefore to visit John and Ilona following a friend describing this as the Gidleigh Park of North Devon. We were not disappointed from the warm welcome until the post dinner chat we were delighted. Although... More

We were staying at Yeoldon House Hotel and having been out and about all day, had booked to take dinner in the hotel's restaurant, Soyer's. Firstly the (very) good points. The restaurant had a nice environment/atmosphere - not overly stuffy, but formal enough that you felt you were out for a more special meal. The food, mostly, was very good... More

Firstly I would like to congratulate Brian and Jennifer and their team for once again receiving a Travellers Choice award for service for the 5th consecutive year. A great retirement present. We visited Soyers Restaurant last month with friends and was disappointed to see that the lounge had lost it's Country House Charm, and we sat on dining chairs round... More

We were Jennifer & Brian Steele's biggest fans. The announcement of their retirement left our nerves jangling. Were we about to lose our favourite restaurant - the venue that has given us so many happy memories? Such a relief - the Yeldon House Hotel is in safe hands under its new ownership! The food at Soyer's Restaurant is seriously good.... More

An innovative menu with wonderfully prepared and presented food. The restaurant is located within the Victorian property of Yeolden House hotel.

Took the family out for a doo this weekend (no children, just parents, grandparents, in-laws,etc), the food was good and an interesting menu that everyone enjoyed trying, and definitely the lamb main was excellent. The setting is beautiful and the interior of the hotel really nice. There are set sittings, so a limited number of people in the restaurant at... More

I cannot fault the food in this restaurant and the wine is good as well. However it is seriously lacking any kind of ambience which is a real shame.
