First time visit under the new chef and most of the team. Cooking fresh and modern make us very exited but service need a little work on. Overall a great lunch!

We booked a room and dinner at Gidleigh park as part of a special package. We arrived on a beautiful hot Saturday afternoon and our bags were swiftly taken and we were shown onto the terrace to enjoy the view and a drink while waiting for our room. We ordered afternoon tea which was delicious, fabulous cakes only downside was... More

My husband and I order the 7 course tasting menu and were delighted by the food. Every item was beautifully cooked, deep flavours that resonated on the tongue and exquisitely presented. There are so many delectable delights on the menu, that a return visit is required to sample further. The service is excellent and you are made to feel you... More

We stayed for two nights and chose the 10 Course tasting menu one night and the Seven on the other. Both were simply marvellous. Michael Wignall's cuisine is sublime. We'll be back!

Impossible to describe the intense complexity and flavour of the wonderful fresh creations from this brilliant chef. Michael Wignall produces dishes completely different from Michael Caine (ex GP, who i rate as one of the UK's finest chefs) but you simply have to visit to sample MW's magnificent creative dishes. A true experience to add to your bucket list.

After 50 years of eating around the world I can say that it's seldom that you will dine somewhere where everything is perfect. Gidleigh Park on Saturday was such a place. The building itself is gorgeous and fits beautifully into its Dartmoor setting. Inside is well cared for, furnished and decorated without being pretentious. We were welcomed at the door... More

It's a stunning location and I was so looking forward to my visit. We were with our wonderful friends and out for a celebratory meal. When we arrived in a taxi someone opened the car door for the taxi driver to get out, very strange. We sat in the lounge having a pre dinner drink admiring the view. One of... More

One of the finest and interesting meals ever. I can't really explain it all course by course as I didn't take notes, but here goes... Had a quick beer on the terrace first taking in the beautiful view, then walked through to a table at the window enabling me to take in the nightfall whilst eating. Was served an exquisite... More
