Nestled on the fringes of Dartmoor National Park, the Great Western at Bovey Castle epitomises tranquillity with its rural setting. Guests can enjoy classic British food in a relaxed dining room that recalls the allure of the restaurant’s Art Deco origins.
The Great Western menu features locally produced, exceptional food, all of which is beautifully presented. Scallops with an emulsion of cockles, clams and oyster are a spectacular starter while the roast suckling pig with confit turnip and spiced quince makes for a sumptuous main course. The impressive wine list at Bovey Castle near Newton Abbot is filled with meticulously sourced bottles.
A delectable array of desserts includes warm banana soufflé with corn ice cream and malt toffee sauce, and a creative chocolate tree stump with lime and cardamom.
Guests can pre-arrange transport to this fine dining restaurant in Devon with the hotel. Newton Abbot Train Station is a 40-minute drive from Bovey Castle.

Hello the experience was lovely, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was great, it was really nice to sit in the bar area first and to be able to relax and have a drink before being seated. All in all great evening. Thanks

The room was lovely and the ambiance was perfect; the food and service was fantastic. If anything the only drawback was the failure to find it easily on the Satnav and no real signposting for the hotel.

We visited for Sunday lunch and had a lovely time , The food was excellent and the service was very good. The three courses were excellent and good value I had the chicken and my guests had the beef and salmon for the main course. .All dishes were well presented and very tasty. We all enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant and afterwards in the lounge where we were treated to fabulous sunny winter views, coffee & teas plus some delicious petits fours.
