We had experienced Michael Wignall’s cooking at Pennyhill Park as well as that of Michael Caines here, both two stars but rather different styles. Our impression of the former had been somewhat coloured by the unfortunate dining room and the substandard front of house staff, which we felt let the chef down, especially when the majority of the dishes in...

We stayed here recently and we were bowled over. The staff are delightful and nothing is too much trouble. Take time to talk with them as they are very knowledgeable and interesting experts in the hospitality business. The rooms are excellent and the facilities are very impressive, although we are out all day walking on Dartmoor! The food is exquisite... More

We have been several times to Gidleigh from Michael Caines to Michael Wignall. Loved the food this time as always especially love the explosions of taste from the tasting menu ( thank you Michael W). Disappointed in an apparent lack of front of house. No one to greet you, luggage in the wrong room and added extras to our bill-... More

Gidleigh Park is very special to my husband and I. We were engaged in the grounds and had our 1st wedding anniversary meal there. We were sad that Michael Cains left but really excited to try the new chef. We booked lunch to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and were hoping for an experience as special as before. The tasting... More

Chef Michael Wignall came to the Gidleigh with a five-star pedigree and on my wife and I's experience of the ten course tasting menu last night it is more than deserved. The dishes are small [for obvious reasons] but add up to a substantial meal that has both a narrative and a sense of direction as it flows from one... More

Gidleigh Park is a fabulous place to go for a special treat. We had a seven course taster lunch, (which was not tiny little portions, we were very full by the end) The whole experience was lovely, to have your lunch cooked by a 2 Michelin star chef was very special. Gidleigh is a grand and plush place, but the... More

Our visit to Gidleigh Park was a surprise birthday treat from my husband and the whole experience was exceptional. We arrived for pre lunch drinks which were served in front of the log fire in the Lounge. We chose the seven course taster menu which didn't disappoint. Having eaten in Michelin starred restaurants before I would say that this lunch... More

What you should expect from a Michelin starred establishment! I have to say, that eating in top end eateries for many years, including several other 1, 2 and 3* restaurants, Gidleigh Park under Michael Wignall has awarded us the most complete satisfactory meal we have eaten. From start to finish the level of service, presentation, cooking and flavours was faultless.... More

Just amazing. Cannot find all the right words to describe the food, service and whole ambiance. Yes, expensive but knew to expect that and we were not let down. Loved it. Thank you so much.

We only stayed at the hotel one night, so definitely had the degustation dinner. Beautiful food in beautiful surroundings and good service.

Thank rojaan1
