Lewtrenchard Manor is every inch the stunning country manor, and whilst the building dates back to the 1600s the restaurant serves up modern haute cuisine that attracts diners from all over the county. With a 3 AA Rosette to its name, the restaurant impresses with unique combinations that work well together, and some of the produce even comes straight from its own walled vegetable garden.
Typical dishes include lemongrass-curled salmon with Devon crab, pickled ginger and wasabi, and if you want to make your visit extra special you can reserve the Purple Carrot dining room which has a view of the bustling kitchen. You’ll be able to chat to the chef while he oversees the action and luxuriate in champagne, canapés and eight sumptuous courses.
Considering the quality of the food the atmosphere throughout the restaurant is relaxed, and the well-stocked cellar has a wide range of wines and one to suit every budget. The gardener pays close attention to the vegetable garden and works with the teams of chefs to recommend the best produce of the season, so the menu changes throughout the year and reflects a real taste of the West Country. Lewtrenchard Manor recently came 8th in The Times poll of The 20 most romantic restaurants in Britain.
