Food features highly on the menu here; the restaurant has been well renouned for over 50 years and uses only the very best seasonal produce, sourced from local growers. The dinner menu might include a starter of St Ives mackerel with handpicked Brixham crab and cucumber, followed by a loin of Devon lamb with wild garlic, spring onions and a morel jus. Signature dessert dishes include a Valrhona chocolate and cherry assiette, or a rhubarb & custard tart with gingerbread ice cream.
