    Excellent food, service and environment. Our favourite place to visit - calm, relaxed and hugely professional.

  • ((((( 8 July 2017 by Kathy D from Bovey Tracey

    We all enjoyed Tim's birthday lunch - it was a lovely relaxing escape from our normal busy lifes. The dishes were all wonderful with amazing flavours and textures, and we enjoyed every mouthful. Our only observation is that it was so difficult to choose what to have, as we'd all like to have tried everything! It was a great experience from the friendly welcome to coffee in the lounge and we particularly appreciated the attentive but unobtrusive service. Many thanks ??

    We found it a little formal and two glasses of wine @£24 each rather expensive.

    Fabulous experience. Fantastic service, scrumptious tea in beautiful surroundings.

    Our afternoon tea was amazing - the cakes were visually exciting and tasted sublime but the scones......straight from the oven and absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive but not overly so. Location was beautiful so you can guess that we loved it!

    Depends how piggy you are but 1 full afternoon tea and tea for Two would probably done us as we were

    To say that we had been eagerly anticipating our lunch at Gidleigh Park would be an understatement! We had been given a voucher to put towards a meal or stay last year for our joint birthdays by our sons. Unfortunately the booking we made for a year ago had to be cancelled as I was ill, but we rebooked for May this year.
    When we arrived after that extremely delightful if rather hair raising drive from Chagford down the very narrow and twisting approach lane [be brave - it's worth it], we were warmly welcomed and shown to the Lounge with its panoramic view down the valley and to the moor beyond.
    Following a coffee, we were settled in with a drink and copies of the menu. We opted for the 3 course version at £50 per head. We had booked for one o'clock, and just after we were summoned to our table The Dining Room was intimate but uncrowded with I would say 15 covers and our experience over the next 2 and a half hours was unrushed and flowing! Did I say we had booked the three courses? Well we had but by the time one took into consideration the Amuse Bouche and variety of Entre Plats, we must have had virtually the full Tasting menu. Quite quite delicious.
    For our Starters - by the way after about four different 'tantalisers' - we had the Octopus and the Red Mullet. Absolute perfection. The main Course was the Lamb with exciting vegetables the like of which we had certainly not experienced before. Equally delicious. The Dessert was a Symphony of flavours based on Strawberries - my wife's, and Rhubarb - mine. However, the entre plat before the dessert was served was the show stopper as far as I was concerned! A mango manifestation of magic in a many varied format of Ices, creams and cubes ... quite quite breathtakingly delicious.
    The service was impeccable under the expert tutelage of Maitre Domo; the food quite quite delicious from the recently appointed executive Chef Michael Wigsall and the ambience unhurried and comfortable.
    Save your pennies and go!

    Superb service from all staff - who were welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. The attention to detail was superlative and the food was wondrous. From roe deer to snickers a taste sensation. We booked for the experience and what we got was certainly memorable.
