We went for a fixed menu lunch. Service was polite and relaxed, the restaurant was intimate overlooking the park. The food was perfect and very tasty. A great afternoon, thoroughly recommended.

Description
Set majestically on the bubbling upper reaches of the River Teign, Gidleigh Park enjoys an exquisite location on the very edge of Dartmoor National Park. At the heart of the hotel, the elegant and intimate award-winning restaurant provides a sophisticated backdrop to Executive Chef, Chris Simpson's decadent tasting and à la carte menus. Chris focuses his dishes on the best seasonal ingredients combined with a deep-rooted classical cooking style and a modern interpretation. Menus are carefully crafted without pretension, and his food is defined by the absolute freshness & seasonality of ingredients alongside true clarity of flavour. Chris enjoys experimenting with ingredients, exploring how to bring out the best in them and building flavour combinations and one ingredient can be the inspiration for an entire dish. Matching the high standards in the kitchen, Gidleigh’s internationally renowned wine cellar accommodates over 1,300 bins and 13,000 bottles from around the world.
