I'm not going to wax on about how amazing this meal was. I'm writing this more than a month later and I simply can't remember every detail, every flourish, every additional burst of flavour. What I remember are two absolutely outstanding dishes in the salt cod with chorizo and the duck (the latter followed the former in the tasting menu).... More

Had a celebration lunch with family - wonderful food and service in a perfect setting. The perfect canapés, amuse bouche and petit fours were the icing on the cake!

We had both been looking forward to our lunch at Gidleigh Park to celebrate my partner's birthday and as you approach the hotel it really is in a stunning location. A walk around the grounds before lunch was a great way to relax and immerse ourselves in the Gidleigh Experience. The service, as you'd expect, was excellent as soon as... More

The food was lovely and service excellent. It is a little quiet which may suit some. Be prepared for the road up to the hotel which I would not want to do in the dark.

We chose to celebrate our Anniversary at Gidleigh Park and were lucky to be accepted with only 2 days notice.
