Booked the restaurant as a birthday treat for my mother-in-law's birthday and I can thoroughly recommend it! We had the 2 course set menu, which was ample for us. My husband had the squid, which he said was well cooked and not at all rubbery and the leek and potato soup was creamy and delicious. Mains included the venison steaks,... More

We enjoyed our first visit and came back the other day for lunch as a party of four for lunch. As it was a celebration we enjoyed some sparkling drinks in the lounge before going through for lunch. Our order was taken in the lounge and the whole process was very civilised and set the tone very well. The menu... More

The medium rare filet steak was cooked to perfection and melted like butter in the mouth. I choose with it peppercorn sauce which complimented the steak extremely well. The meal was one of the best I have had in a long while. The restaurant is perfect for a romantic meal and the staff are polite and attentive. The martini crab... More

I attended a funeral reception at Orestone Manor recently. They put on an afternoon tea, with a nice selection of sandwiches, scones, with cream and jam and other cakes. The location, on the cliff top overlooking the sea, is very good and there is a patio outside where you can sit. The hotel looked interesting and there were quite a... More

Thank you for your review, I am a little puzzled as customers who post a 3 star review would have had some negative feedback for us, however you seem to be pleased with your tea and the restaurant etc. Perhaps you would be so kind to let me know why you scored us only 3 out of 5. Or if... More

We had two meals here whilst holidaying in Devon at the end of August. Both were delicious. I am vegetarian and there was a good choice. Service was good. Jo who had just become an auntie was our main waitress. Good value too. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. Roughly £80 for two and a half courses for two... More

We enjoyed a pleasant evening sat in the 'conservatory' having a great meal. The conservatory is quieter than the main restaurant and more spaced out. During the day, or early evening, the views across the gardens are spectacular. The four of us had very different meals and none of us could fault them in any way. The chef has introduced... More
