Proudly boasting 2 AA Rosettes for excellence, The Salty Monk restaurant is hidden in the beautiful Devon countryside, as part of an award-winning Bed & Breakfast. Utilising local produce, it serves fine British cuisine, and was even awarded ‘Best Coastal Cream Tea in Devon’.

The award-winning menu of The Salty Monk offers an a la carte menu, complemented by a wine list of both well-known and unearthed-gem bottles. Expect robust flavours, with dishes created with a contemporary twist, guided by the seasons. Such delicious dishes include roast fillet of beef sliced on to wild garlic pasta ribbons, shin-filled ravioli and beef jus or to start, a home grown pea mousse, pea puree and serrano ham.

There are two restaurant areas, giving the opportunity for a private party to have exclusive use of one of them. The award winning gardens offer the opportunity to dine alfresco and a large private car park is a definite bonus. Just 5 minutes’ drive to the sea at Sidmouth, or a pleasant stroll through The Byes The Salty Monk is the ideal country restaurant in Devon.

    This is an ideal venue for a special occasion. It falls into the 'pricey' category; however, the overall experience makes it worth every penny. Attention to detail is the key, from the cosy ambience and the first class service, to the carefully selected wine list and the taste explosion in every course. Simply fantastic!

    Customer Service from the moment we walked through the door was excellent, food choice was very good with plenty of options which made it a challenge to choose and when it came it was everything we'd hope for and more. Love the way the menu is priced too. We will be back to sample more!

    Not a vast menu choice, the pate we had for a starter was nice but not stunning. The main courses were good, although we should have asked for more sauce because as we carried on eating we found the dish a little dry. Dessert was very good. Service very good. Lovely setting in such an old building.

    Lovely restaurant, nice setting, good service and delicious, modern, yet classic cooking.

    All courses were of an excellent standard of food, with respect to ingredients, presentation and especially taste. This was an extremely good dining experience. Pre-dinner drinks and after dinner coffee were served in a lovely lounge.
