The duck last night was extraordinary - the sauce/jus was the best I have ever tasted. The belly Pork dish was also amazing - this restaurant never disappoints!

    This has got to be the best restaurant in the whole of east Devon. The food we had was beautifully cooked and presented. The vegetarian option was full of flavour, the mushroom soup was divine. The staff are very helpful and friendly and on a cold, wet December evening the place was warm and welcoming. Overall, a great experience.

    The quality and service Bowmers offer is superb. This is our favourite place to eat. It is a fine dining experience in a comfortable setting. We have never had a bad meal here and feel very lucky to be so close. This is the best place to eat locally.

    Bowmers is just fantastic. We always look forward to dining here. The ambiance is great, the staff professional, knowledgeable and friendly and the food is superb. Good wine list, sensibly priced. Always happy to recommend (and return!).

    On arrival we were offered a warm welcome. The menu wasn't extensive but what it lacked in quantity it certainly made up for in spades with quality. The flavours on all the dishes we had were well balanced and the crab soufflé was amazing. We could certainly tell the Raymond Blanc influence from the Chef's time at the Manoir

    The restaurant also has an excellent wine menu and the team know their wines.

    Our evening was certainly more of a gourmet experience, than just a night out to a restaurant.

    An excellent all-round experience: knowledgeable and attentive staff; quality, well-prepared and presented food; and a good choice of drinks.

    It's great to have a nice restaurant on our doorstep. The dining area is stylish and the staff are friendly but professional. Menu is varied but not too big - just right really. Everything is there - Interesting starters and Fish Meat Poultry and Vegetarian main courses. All four diners at our table really enjoyed their choices. Extensive wine menu and good classic desserts too. Only complaint is that the noise level is rather high once the tables fill up.
