Excellent!

Excellent food and a superb experience from start to finish. Should be a 3 Michelin star restaurant and not the 2 that it holds! It is a taste extravaganza that you would be hard to beat.

Booked a table for lunch at Gidleigh on the back of a promo e-mail, to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. First time back for 6 or 7 years. Glorious day which helped! Food and service at the table were excellent. I had noted on the booking that I did not eat fish and they were spot on with this. But... More

Our concierge at Bovey Castle screwed up the reservation at this restaurant. We were told there was no way for them to accommodate us in their dining room and instead were offered to have dinner in their lobby area with a limited menu. Since we had the late seating and there was not another decent restaurant open nearby we settled... More

We were celebrating a friends birthday with a special lunch and were delighted with the whole experience. The welcome was warm and genuine. One of our group is gluten intolerant which was stated when booking, the chef had designed a special menu just for him and when bringing the bread basket presented 3 choices of gluten-free bread, very impressive!

visited this hotel again after a year and was not disappointed. this time we were celebrating our anniversary with an afternoon tea with champagne. Lovely sandwiches and scones as well as cake and a selection of tea. We opted for the Ruinart champagne which made the whole experience even more delightful. Cannot fault the service from the staff and the... More

Straight away upon arrival everything was done to make us feel welcome, it is so beautiful but in no way intimidating as everyone works hard to make sure you feel happy from the moment you walk in. The food is heavenly, we did the set lunch menu - incredible. They even changed the aperitif to suit me! All in all... More

My husband and I have dined at Gidleigh on a number of occasions when we have organised weekend getaways to Devon and this place remains very special to us. The service is impeccable, the food heavenly and the grounds beautiful. We even turned up one day Saturday lunchtime without a reservation and we had a great impromptu experience at a... More

Beautiful location, yes the road to the Hotel is long and narrow and winding, but that's the nature of the area and there are plenty of passing places. The remoteness of Gidleigh Park only accentuates the wonderful peace and quiet. On arrival we sat on the terrace overloking the gardens and river and enjoyed the birds and squirrels (and no... More
