    Excellent meal. Amuse bouche and pre dessert were superb. Very good quality gluten free bread and the first stage butter was amazing, a real revelation.

    We went on the special Summer Treats menu of five courses and a glass of Champagne for only £49 per person. This was phenomenal value. Superb food and discrete , unobtrusive and skillful service. The madame serveuse and sommelier were particularly impressive. We started with the champagne on the terrace overlooking a lovely garden and had a table inside the restaurant with a similar view.
    We finished off with a refreshing walk through the grounds by the tingling river.

    Loved everything, particularly the sauces - so smooth and velvety. I loved trying to detect all the various flavours in the dishes. Enjoyed every mouthful.

    This is the first time we have visited Gidleigh since Michael Caine left but I am happy to say that Gidleigh remains our favourite restaurant. Our food was beautifully prepared and the flavours were exceptional Every single dish we enjoyed wowed our taste buds and we look forward to a return visit soon

    We all thoroughly enjoyed the exquisite, and expertly cooked, Summer Lunch menu with wonderful wine to complement, coupled with a great service and a very relaxed ambience.

    Gidleigh park is a wonderful dining experience. The tasting menu is well thought through and original. This is a dining experience all bout the food not theatre. Certainly a treat for a special occasion. Allow enough time to explore the grounds too. The staff are impeccable.

    The only downside is that it can be a real challenge to get there so make sure you stick to the A roads and don't let a sat nav take you off course.
